red heart representing spravato treatmentAt Columbia Associates, we understand that combining multiple interventions is essential to providing the most beneficial results for our clients. We are proud to present Spravato®, a revolutionary remedy opportunity for those enduring depression symptoms.

The FDA has approved Spravato®, or esketamine, as a nasal spray for those struggling with treatment-resistant depression. This revolutionary drug works by rapidly changing brain chemistry to immediately relieve symptoms like gloominess, despondency, and apathy.

Spravato® is an innovative treatment option that works in tandem with oral antidepressants and must be administered under the watchful eye of a healthcare provider. Research shows that it can yield positive results for those who have not seen success when relying on traditional antidepressant medications or talk therapy alone.

Spravato® is not a remedy for depression, but it can bring substantial relief from symptoms and assist clients in regaining their quality of life. If you or someone close to you is dealing with depression, we urge you to find out more about Spravato® along with the other mental health treatment services offered by Columbia Associates. Our team of psychiatric and healthcare professionals is here to support your recovery journey every step of the way.

What Is Spravato® Depression Treatment?

Spravato® is a life-changing nasal spray depression treatment. Containing esketamine, this groundbreaking therapy works by resetting neural pathways in the brain and upping norepinephrine and serotonin levels, two neurotransmitters that are known to combat depression. This innovative approach can produce faster symptom relief than conventional oral antidepressants.

For people who have tried other depression treatments to no avail, Spravato® can be a welcome solution. However, it’s important to understand that this drug should be used as part of an overall recovery plan and can’t replace the need for talk therapy or other lifestyle changes.
