Please join us for a two hour presentation by Board Certified and award winning psychiatrist Dr. Mona Gupta to learn about the most up to date uses of Ketamine and Spravato, especially with treatment resistant depression and suicidal ideation. Participants will gain a better understanding of if/when a client may be a good candidate for this form of treatment  and how to refer.  Dr. Gupta will cover the pros and cons of using these substances and give details on what typical treatments are like, highlighting the differences between the nasal spray administration, Intramuscular injection and intravenous injection.  She will address questions about success rates,  insurance coverage, and any other questions participants  may have in incorporating these adjunct treatments in their practices.

After this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Have an awareness of what the experience of  treatment with the various applications of Ketamine is like for clients and what a typical  “course of treatment” involves
  • Have an understanding of which forms of Ketamine treatment are likely to  be covered by insurance carriers and which are not as well as an estimate of out of pocket costs for the client.
