Meaningful Treatment for Ketamine Addiction

Put Down Ketamine Today

As with all other club drugs and hallucinogens, ketamine has a reputation for being a relatively innocent, fun drug that we take at parties or concerts to enhance the mood a little bit. There couldn’t be anything wrong with that, right? For us, the people who can’t force ourselves to stop abusing ketamine, the reality is right in front of us. Day in and day out we take more and more of the drug, in the hopes of staying in our “K-hole”, a term used to describe the trance-like state of being under the influence of ketamine. Indeed, ketamine addiction has taken everything from us and we feel like we have nowhere to turn.
