Ketamine Withdrawal​

For some individuals, drug use is a way to communicate, have fun with friends, and experience the world differently. While the recreational use of drugs like ketamine may initially seem safe, this dissociative drug is known to be highly addictive and can easily lead to substance abuse. Accordingly, if you or a loved one is struggling with ketamine addiction, professional ketamine withdrawal and detox help are available.

At 4 Seasons Detox, your long-term sober life is our ultimate goal. We provide professional detox services alongside addiction treatment that supports you in early sobriety with our specialists. Furthermore, sustainable sobriety is possible. We can help without a doubt!

However, ketamine is known as a “dissociative anesthetic” and is commonly used by doctors to calm patients. More recently, ketamine has been used as a recreational drug. Ketamine users note the hallucinogenic effects of the substance, which have become more popular to use in social situations.

Ketamine users experience a brief high and can quickly develop a tolerance. This combination makes ketamine highly addictive and also susceptible to drug abuse. Moreover, ketamine overdose is possible, and as individuals build up their tolerance and take more of the drug, this risk rises substantially.

Ketamine withdrawal symptoms are both physical and psychological and can have a severe impact on daily life, healthy functioning, and relationships. Due to the potential medical care needed to navigate these symptoms, alongside the risk of relapse, we will always recommend a professional medical detox as you begin your recovery journey.

Our team of medical professionals provides both physical and mental health support for those experiencing withdrawal from ketamine. This level of care is often needed to help individuals fully rid their bodies of toxins before doing the mental health work necessary to make a full recovery. Remember, the only safe detox is by medical professionals!

Physical Symptoms

The physical withdrawal symptoms occur 24 hours after your last dose and can range from minor to severe. Furthermore, we are able to ease the discomfort of these symptoms, which may include:

  • Sweating
  • Fatigue
  • Chills
  • Low appetite
  • Racing heart
  • And more

Psychological Withdrawal Symptoms

For many, the psychological withdrawal symptoms associated with ketamine detox are the most difficult part of recovery. Additionally, these withdrawal symptoms may include:

  • Depression
  • Hallucinations
  • Anxiety
  • Paranoia
  • Dysphoria
  • And more

After you have completed your ketamine detox, you will notice that the ketamine withdrawal symptoms have started to subside. However, your journey to recovery has only just begun. Substance abuse recovery not only requires a detox process but mental health care that helps individuals understand why they chose to abuse ketamine in the first place.

At 4 Seasons Detox, we believe in the power of mental wellness for a long-term sober life. That’s why our addiction treatment programs include a wide range of mental health services, including individual therapy, group therapy, family counseling, holistic modalities for healing, and more. 

Additionally, our treatment center offers dual diagnosis treatment for those who are struggling with mental health disorders alongside addiction. With the skills and resources needed to handle challenging situations, addiction can become a thing of the past.

If you are ready to leave chronic ketamine abuse behind and step into the freedom that long-term sober life can bring, we look forward to supporting you on your journey. Whether you’re struggling with ketamine addiction or are newly aware of problems, we offer support.

If you have questions about what to expect during ketamine detox or what it means to work with our team of professionals at 4 Seasons Detox, reach out at any time. We look forward to helping you!
