At Northeast Health Services, combining multiple interventions is often essential to providing the most beneficial results for our clients. It is with immense honor that we introduce Spravato®, a groundbreaking treatment opportunity for individuals struggling to cope with depression.
The FDA has granted its stamp of approval for Spravato®, or esketamine, as a nasal spray to treat treatment-resistant depression. This revolutionary medication quickly alters brain chemistry and significantly reduces symptoms like hopelessness, sadness, and indifference in the blink of an eye.
Spravato® is a revolutionary treatment option that can be used in conjunction with oral antidepressants and must always be administered under the direction of a healthcare provider. Studies have indicated that this process could potentially yield blooming results for those who had not progressed when solely depending on traditional antidepressant medications or verbal therapy.
While it’s not a remedy or cure for depression, it can bring substantial relief from symptoms and assist clients in regaining their quality of life. If you or a loved one has depression, learn more about Spravato® and our other mental health treatment services. At Northeast Health Services, our team of psychiatric and healthcare professionals is here to support your recovery journey every step of the way.
What Is Spravato® Depression Treatment?
Spravato® is a life-changing nasal spray depression treatment for many. Containing esketamine, it works by resetting neural pathways in the brain and upping norepinephrine and serotonin levels. These are two neurotransmitters that are known to combat depression. This approach can produce faster symptom relief than conventional oral antidepressants.
For people who have tried other depression treatments with no success, Spravato® can be a welcome relief. It’s beneficial for those with treatment-resistant depression who have difficulty responding to other forms of treatment or medications. It’s important to understand that this drug should be used as part of an overall recovery plan and can’t replace the need for talk therapy or other lifestyle changes.
