The Ketamine Fund Donates 400 Free Treatments To Veterans

Cleveland, Ohio, 2020-Jan-28 — /EPR Network/ — Ketamine therapy for depression is the new frontier in the treatment of mood disorders and chronic pain. Point Ketamine specializes in customizing treatment plans based on the client’s needs and condition as part of the overall treatment and recovery of depression. They have been recognized by the FDA, National Institute of Mental Health, Yale University, Cleveland Clinic and other leading institutions as a breakthrough treatment for depression with instant benefits for stopping suicidal ideation.

The Ketamine Fund’s first-of-its-kind pilot program is being administered at Ketamine SLC by Robert Hiemstra, MD. Dr. Hiemstra, a national leader in providing ketamine treatment to veterans, stated, “I am thrilled to be working with The Ketamine Fund to advance their mission and provide treatment now to those who need it most.” Hiemstra continued, “I have personally treated hundreds of veteran patients I know the powerful impact ketamine has. I also know that the cost is something that many veterans struggle to afford.” The mission of this Fund is to ‘save lives by stopping suicides. They announced a donation of 400 free ketamine treatments to veterans in Utah suffering from suicidal ideation caused by PTSD, depression and addiction.

“People are struggling and our families and communities are being torn apart. Ketamine can stop the suffering,” said Mike “Zappy” Zapolin, Co-Founder of The Ketamine Fund.

Warren Gumpel, Co-Founder of The Ketamine Fund, added, “As a ketamine patient myself, I was able to overcome my debilitating depression. Since that time, I’ve wanted to do everything in my power to see that anyone who needs this treatment has the ability to get it.”

Prior to being helped by The Ketamine Fund, Corporal Sloan Ulibarri, USMC Retired, was prescribed 22 different medications by the VA at one point, none of which worked. Says Ulibarri, “After my first ketamine injection I went home and hugged my children and felt the love in a way that I hadn’t in 10 years.” Since beginning the ketamine treatments, he is on no medications.

Nate Lark, Former Army Ranger, was so overwhelmed with his PTSD that he put his gun to his head and pulled the trigger. Thankfully it misfired, and with the help of his family, he found ketamine. “Since I’ve had the ketamine treatments my life has completely changed. Now I’m dedicated to sharing this incredible treatment with other service members,” Lark continued.
