Addiction Treatment

Overcoming Addiction with Ketamine Infusion Therapy at Evexia Wellness Center in Clovis, CA

At Evexia Wellness Center in Clovis, CA, we offer a transformative approach to addiction recovery with our ketamine infusion therapy. Designed to address the most challenging cases, ketamine has shown remarkable effectiveness in treating addiction and substance dependence. Research suggests that ketamine is often more successful than traditional treatments, particularly for those resistant to conventional therapies. Moreover, ketamine typically avoids many of the common side effects associated with traditional medications. It enhances neuroplasticity, allowing the brain to rewire itself and alter how it manages cravings, drug-related memories, motivation to quit, and certain behaviors.

Treating Addiction with Ketamine Therapy

Ketamine infusion therapy has been shown to significantly extend periods of abstinence for individuals recovering from substances like alcohol, cocaine, heroin, and more. Clinical trials indicate that those receiving ketamine in conjunction with therapy achieve better results than those undergoing therapy alone. Ketamine helps reduce the risk of relapse and supports long-term sobriety.

Types of Addiction Treated

Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol addiction, or alcoholism, is a chronic condition characterized by an inability to control drinking habits. It can lead to severe physical, psychological, and social consequences. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism defines heavy drinking as more than 4 drinks per day or 14 drinks per week for men, and more than 3 drinks per day or 7 drinks per week for women. Symptoms of alcohol addiction include:

  • Intense cravings for alcohol
  • Unsuccessful attempts to cut down or control drinking
  • Inability to limit alcohol consumption
  • Decline in work performance due to drinking
  • Negative impact on personal and family relationships
  • Abandoning social, work activities, and hobbies to drink
  • Withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, sweating, rapid heartbeat, tremors, insomnia, restlessness, anxiety, hallucinations, and seizures

Alcohol addiction affects millions of Americans. If you experience withdrawal symptoms, seek immediate medical evaluation.

Drug Addiction

Drug addiction, or substance use disorder, involves the compulsive use of illegal drugs.  Individuals with drug addiction experience intense cravings and withdrawal symptoms like nausea, vomiting, sweating, and anxiety when they stop using the drug.

Prescription Drug Addiction

Prescription drug addiction involves the misuse and prolonged use of prescription medications beyond their intended medical purpose. This type of addiction includes opioids, benzodiazepines, stimulants, sedatives, and other central nervous system-affecting drugs. The symptoms and risks associated with prescription drug addiction vary by drug class but can be life-threatening and even fatal.
