In late 2022, Sarah Gutilla’s treatment-resistant depression had grown so severe, she was actively contemplating suicide. Raised in foster care, the 34-year-old’s childhood was marked by physical violence, sexual abuse, and drug use, leaving her with life-threatening mental scars.

Out of desperation, her husband scraped together $600 for the first of six rounds of intravenous ketamine therapy at Ketamine Clinics Los Angeles, which administers the generic anesthetic for off-label uses such as treating depression. When Gutilla got into an Uber for the 75-mile drive to Los Angeles, it was the first time she had left her home in Llano, California, in two years. The results, she said, were instant.

Ketamine therapy is gaining attention as a potential treatment for mental health conditions, but its use remains a topic of debate and uncertainty. While some hail its rapid antidepressant effects, others caution about its long-term safety and efficacy. The article explores the complexities of ketamine therapy, shedding light on the challenges faced by both doctors and patients in navigating this “wild west” of mental health treatment.
