Our Approach

At Alleviation Ketamine, we provide safe and effective care for many mental health conditions and chronic pain syndromes with intravenous ketamine infusion therapy.  We know you are more than a diagnosis. Although, diagnoses can be helpful in guiding treatment and research, they do not tell the full story of your life or make up all of who you are. Patterns of thought, emotion, feeling and behavior have developed as a result of years of experiences - and only experience will lead to true healing.      Thus, we view treatment with ketamine as a personal journey and we act as your guides. The power to heal is an innate quality of our bodies and minds. We help you unlock that potential.      Our approach focuses on the healing effect of the non-ordinary state of consciousness that occurs during the infusion.  This state shift allows access to unconscious parts of the mind that are difficult to access in ordinary waking consciousness. Furthermore, this state of consciousness allows us to gain new perspectives on our "self" and our relationship to that self, to others, to our culture and to the universe at large.      We also focus on neuroception, the ability of the autonomic nervous system and subcortical brain regions to interpret internal and external stimuli to assess the level of safety.  We provide a safe and nurturing environment so you can fully immerse yourself in the process.       Finally, we harness the enhanced neuroplasticity catalyzed by the ketamine infusion. Neuroplasticity is the ability of neurons (nerve cells) to form new connections in the brain and to break old connections. We can harness this malleablity to re-wire the brain and initiate psychological and emotional change at the cellular and molecular level.

"It’s really great to have an option close to home and not having to trek into Boston. The offices are beautiful, and the recovery room is really nice.

Dr. Hadfield is very kind as well."

Stephen B.

"I had severe Spasms and Chronic Pain from a
Neuropathic Illness for 6 years. I had five
Ketamine treatments in December and my
Spasticity improved tremendously!! My chronic pain also improved. I usually
had pain at a nine out of a 1-10 scale. My pain now is a three. I look forward to my next infusion.
Neal and Rebecca are a great team. They
made me feel at ease when I was having my treatment. Neal was very comforting and was
Excellent at placing my IV five days in a row.
Thank you, Joan🙏"

Conditions We Treat

At Alleviation Ketamine, we look at each diagnosis as a surface manifestation of deeper pain and suffering.  We view each diagnosis as a confluence of various strategies and adaptations to life experiences, difficulties, wounds and traumas.  The mind and nervous system are shaped by our environment and prioritize survival. However these strategies and adaptations are context-specific and as the lived environment changes, those strategies can lose their relevance.  Ketamine infusion therapy can get to the root underlying and driving symptoms and can help you find deep, transformational healing.
