Learn About the RESTORE Essential Infusion
The RESTORE Essential Infusion is a more sophisticated and innovative formulation of ketamine infusion. It incorporates innovative genetic, metabolic, and medication assessments and optimized infusion protocols to increase efficacy in complex and challenging conditions that have been resistant to other conventional treatment approaches.
Not everyone reacts to medications in the same way. Many people experience frustration when they don't receive relief after trying multiple antidepressants or other treatments such as rTMS, ECT, Spravato, psilocybin or standard ketamine infusions.
The RESTORE Essential Program provides many of our patients with relief of their symptoms for 1-3 years or more - unlike ketamine infusions which typically only last 4-6 weeks. Recommended for patients with severe Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Burnout Syndrome, or Complex PTSD who have not respond to:-
2 or more antidepressant medications
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS)
Electroshock Therapy (ECT)
And those who are prescribed:
Stimulants: Vyvanse, Adderall, Ritalin, Dexedrine, Concerta, Strattera or
Mood Stabilizers: Lamictal, Risperdal, or Zyprexa
Please note, patients known to have complex genetic or metabolic issues and those who have failed to improve following prior ketamine infusion therapy or psychedelic therapies including psilocybin or MDMA may require the RESTORE Advanced Infusion Program.
Successful infusion therapy must be custom-tailored to the individual and the specific medical condition to achieve the best effect in these challenging conditions. The RESTORE Essential Infusion program provides a detailed, personal evaluation that may include obtaining a sophisticated genetic and metabolic profile with specific recommendations and assistance with optimization before beginning infusion therapy to achieve long-lasting relief.
In addition to each patient's metabolic and genetic optimization, each RESTORE Essential infusion is administered using a proprietary infusion protocol with continual adjustment. The protocol provides the optimal concentration of medication necessary for complex conditions over a more extended period of time.
That is why RESTORE Essential can achieve rapid symptom relief for those who have not improved with multiple antidepressants, rTMS/ECT treatments, or prior ketamine infusions.
RESTORE Essential can accomplish in just 3 sessions what others may not be able to achieve with 6-9 or more ketamine infusions. Not only that, the benefits of feeling better last much longer than those seen with the regular, basic ketamine infusion.

The fewer maintenance infusions are needed –
After the first 3 infusions, patients generally require only two infusions at the three-month mark and one infusion at the six-month mark to become long-lasting (1-3 years in many cases). Of course, if something happens, such as a very stressful life circumstance or traumatic event, then subsequent infusion may be needed for a short time.
Long Term Relief - Following the three initial infusions, only two maintenance sessions are needed to obtain more extended-term relief. Session 1 - Two infusions are performed at the three-month mark following the initial series, and then Session 2 - One infusion is performed at the six-month mark. This advanced program provides many of our patients with relief lasting 1-3 years or more.
Very Effective – 85% of patients with complex or challenging conditions can experience improvement in their symptoms - even in those who have not responded to prior ketamine treatments, ECT, or transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS).
Very Rapid – Only requires 3 infusions, given over 3 days to complete
Very Long Lasting – Improvements last much longer than any ketamine infusion. Very few maintenance infusions are needed.
Cost-Effective – Initial Series and maintenance infusions cost much less (40%) over the first year of treatment than multiple ketamine infusions.
Time Effective –Less time away from home and work
Reduced Medication – Most patients find they can reduce or discontinue prior medications that were not helpful.
At present it is only available at the Ketamine Institute in Sarasota, FL, but we do plan to make it available at multiple locations in the future.
The total cost of the RESTORE Essential Infusion program for mood disorders is $4450.00
Once the initial therapy is completed and each person's optimal response level is determined, the cost of the maintenance infusions is $750.00.
