A Year After Ketamine Therapy: A Patient's Journey to Sobriety from Alcohol

As the founder of Innerbloom, a ketamine infusion clinic nestled in the heart of San Luis Obispo, California, I can't help but feel an overwhelming sense of joy and pride when I receive heartfelt updates from our patients. Today, I am thrilled to share the incredible journey of a remarkable individual who, after a year of completing his ketamine therapy at Innerbloom, has embarked on a new chapter in his life without alcohol.

His story is a testament to the power of alternative treatments and the profound impact they can have on those seeking a path to recovery. In his own words, this patient's experience exemplifies the transformative potential of ketamine therapy, not as a "magic bullet" but as a catalyst for lasting change. We are deeply committed to pioneering new frontiers in healthcare, and the impact we've witnessed in cases like his only reaffirms our dedication to providing effective, compassionate, and innovative solutions for those in need. Join me as we share this inspiring narrative of healing, renewal, and sobriety from alcohol.

One Year Later: How Ketamine Therapy Reshaped My Life After Alcohol

"With nearly a year since my infusions with you and your staff I would definitely consider this to be a lasting effect. I haven’t had anything to drink or any other substances for that matter (except for caffeine). I ditched all the anti-depressants (not hard to do considering the negative effects I experienced while using them). I went in to my ketamine sessions with an intent to stop using alcohol and for that it worked wonders. I wouldn’t describe any one component of the experience as a “magic bullet” but likely a series of notions that clicked deep, as if registered amongst my beliefs.

When I attended AA and outpatient treatment for alcohol, I always felt at odds with feeding so much energy into it, as if making it stronger. Using an alternate method of treatment allowed me to trust in the process and at least feel as though my urges left afterwards, providing a feeling of closure. Having intent is a must, but remaining receptive to whatever the ketamine dredges up is also a necessity.

I think about the experience often, and it gives me comfort knowing that there is such a effective solution available if the need arises. I still pay close attention to the progress of psychedelics in healthcare and enjoy reading your newsletters. I hold this treatment in high regards and as such don’t want to diminish its potency by utilizing it too soon or too often; that being said it’s effects are still providing relief. Thank you for embracing a new field of treatment that offers such an impact and provides such quick, painless relief."
