At Pacific Psych Centers (PPC), we focus on interventional treatments for depression, anxiety, insomnia, and other psychiatric conditions while also mindful of patients’ general health and wellness. We individualize each treatment plan based on your current context, goals, and medical history. PPC provides mental health counseling, conservative psychiatric medication management, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, Theta Burst Stimulation, and intravenous (IV) and intramuscular (IM) ketamine therapy. We also offer integrative nutrition therapy.
Intravenous (IV) Ketamine Therapy
Dr. Jake Hollingsworth founded Pacific Psych Centers, Inc. (PPC), formerly Ketamine For Life, in 2015 and has been a pioneer in the use of IV ketamine for depression. He, along with 6 other physicians, co-founded the American Society of Ketamine Physicians (ASKP), a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and awareness of the use of ketamine for depression and other psychiatric and pain conditions.
Esketamine, branded as Spravato, is FDA-approved for the treatment of treatment resistant depression. It is an intra-nasal, self-administered medication, but requires office monitoring for each dose to ensure safety.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
TMS therapy is FDA-approved to treat patients suffering from depression who have not achieved satisfactory improvements from antidepressant medications. Over one million treatments have been performed.
Theta Burst Stimulation
A newer form of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), theta burst stimulation (TBS) is FDA-approved for treatment-resistant depression and allows for treatments of only a few minutes’ duration.
Injectable Nutrient Therapy
Injectable nutrient therapy (INT) is a medical treatment in which sterile solutions of vitamins, minerals and other naturally occurring nutritive substances are infused directly into the bloodstream, or injected directly into a muscle.
