Lone Star Infusion - Ketamine In Houston - Cup and Computer

Ketamine works for about 70-80% of patients - it is an excellent treatment. But there is more we can do to help it work better, and faster, and for longer. 

Below are some of the free programs that I’ve found that are comprehensive, well-created and really helpful. The hardest part of going for a walk is putting your shoes on and the hardest part of doing these classes is logging in.

 

This Way Up

“THIS WAY UP is a trusted Australian provider of evidence-based, internet-delivered Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (iCBT) programs [-] a joint initiative of St Vincent’s Hospital and the University of New South Wales [and] funded by the Australian Government ...”

“To date, we have created over 15 tailored courses for a range of mental health conditions... Our online courses are available instantly without a need for an assessment or a referral, making it easier for you to access quality mental health self-help.”

A note for patients of Lone Star Infusion: the courses normally cost about $59 Aus but I’m able to prescribe any of the This Way Up programs for my patients for free. If you are interested in this, let us know which class. We use only your name, email, and your preferred class and then you recieve an email from them letting you into the class! You can do as many as you like, but only one at a time.
