Ketamine (also known as K, special K, vitamin K) is a painkilling drug that is available in a liquid, tablet or powder. As an anesthetic and a medication that has been used safely and effectively in hospitals for many years. However ketamine is sometimes used as a tool to assist in the treatment of certain mental health disorders, such as depression or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is administered in controlled and supervised settings, typically in small doses.

The use of ketamine in these settings is based on research suggesting that it may help reduce symptoms of depression and improve mood. However, it’s important to note that the use of ketamine in addiction treatment is still a relatively new approach, and its efficacy is still being studied.

Ketamine is that it is often referred to as a dissociative anesthetic. This means that it can induce a sense of detachment from one’s surroundings and even from one’s own body. While this can be helpful in certain medical procedures, it can also contribute to potential risks and side effects when used outside of a medical setting.

It’s worth mentioning that the use of ketamine in addiction treatment is not without controversy. Some professionals argue that its use should be limited to research settings until more evidence is available to support its effectiveness. Others believe that when administered carefully and under the right conditions, it can be a valuable tool in treating specific mental health conditions.
