U.S. Navy Veteran Turned Physician Opens Resurgence Ketamine Clinic in Response to Growing Mental Health and Opioid Crisis

April 16, 2019

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 16, 2019--In the United States, almost half of adults (46.4 percent) will experience a mental illness during their lifetime. One in five U.S. adults lives with a mental illness and one in four suffers from chronic pain and twenty million U.S. adults have an addiction (NIH.gov). Now, in the Southern Colorado region, those who suffer from mood disorders, chronic pain, treatment-resistant depression, addiction and post traumatic stress disorder can find relief at the Resurgence Ketamine Clinic. Dr. Hodach is a board-certified anesthesiologist physician who uses low-dose ketamine infusions with continuous vital signs and patient monitoring safety protocols to deliver the benefits of renewed mental, physical and spiritual health to our community.

The founder of Resurgence Ketamine Clinic, Dr. Christian Hodach, has used ketamine throughout his career as an anesthesiologist for sedation of patients undergoing surgery. He began administering certain medications to his patients in the operating room and was encouraged by the positive effect the medication had on patients’ moods and demeanor in the days following their procedures. Excited by these findings combined with personal research on ketamine and its effects, he determined that ketamine was the driving factor causing the positive change in patient mood.

At Resurgence Ketamine Clinic we offer customized, state-of-the-art treatments, which can have double the efficacy of standard medications, providing relief in days. Our innovative treatments are based on clinical expertise and current research, allowing the best chance for patients to achieve the quality of life they deserve. Currently, we are the only Southern Colorado physician-led clinic approved to administer Spravato, the new nasal esketamine medication approved for treatment of resistant depression.
