KCLA Redefines Mental Wellness through Evidence-based Innovations with an 83% Success Rate

Unveiling New Possibilities for Emotional Well-being through IV Ketamine Infusion Therapy

LOS ANGELES, June 15, 2023  /PRNewswire/ — Ketamine Clinics Los Angeles (KCLA) unveils a new era in safe and effective mental health care for all —through IV Ketamine Infusion Therapy at Psychedelic Science 2023, the world’s largest gathering of psychedelic medicine practitioners, being held in Denver, CO, June 21-23. KCLA cofounders Steven L. Mandel, M.D., President, and CEO Sam Mandel will attend, along with four team members and one of their patients who has found long-term HOPE and healing through their treatment program in ways she never thought possible. They will be at Booth 321.

“The breakthrough treatments we provide represent a significant step forward in the field of psychedelic medicine and the broader field of mental health care,” said Ketamine Clinics Los Angeles Cofounder and CEO Sam Mandel. “Our mission is not only to provide lasting relief to our patients but to elevate the understanding of Ketamine Infusion Therapy as one of the safest, fastest acting, most effective depression treatments available today.”

“Ketamine infusions offer hope to patients struggling with intractable depression and other mental health conditions. We approach treatments holistically through a collaborative care model with in-house expertise from multi-specialty physicians in anesthesiology, psychology, and psychiatry to address medical and mental health needs,” he said. “KCLA has pioneered ketamine infusions for nearly a decade, and we remain dedicated to helping patients transform their lives through evidence-based therapies.”

As a medical pioneer in ketamine therapy since January 2014, KCLA offers a viable solution to the current mental health crisis through the delivery of affordable IV Ketamine Infusion Therapy, Psychiatric Medication Management, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), and other mental health services. Having administered more than 20,000 ketamine infusions, KCLA has demonstrated an 83% success rate and no long-term side effects.

In a culture that often misunderstands the positive effects of ketamine, KCLA represents a uniquely integrated approach that delivers high-quality, individualized health care in a safe environment by providing:

  • A wide variety of progressive treatments under one roof
  • Insurance coverage by nine of California’s largest health insurance plans, depending on treatment plan
  • Rapid relief and ongoing management with no known long-term side effects
  • Results for treatment-resistant cases
  • Collaborative care model
  • Telehealth for increased access and convenience
  • Interest-free financing options

With more than 160 clinical research papers completed or underway detailing the efficacy of ketamine for mental health conditions, ketamine therapy is recognized as a viable treatment for depression, anxiety, PTSD, and suicidality, among other mental health conditions. Leading institutions such as the National Institute of Mental Health, Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins, Yale, Stanford, Harvard, UCLA, and USC, among others, validate the safety and efficacy of ketamine.
