While awareness of mental health concerns is growing, the need to prioritize better mental health becomes more evident. Dr. Steven Reichbach, board-certified anesthesiologist and practitioner of alternative care, advocates for the mental health of individuals locally and nationally, and he wants to bring attention to ways everyone can prioritize their mental wellness. He also offers ketamine and other recognized mental health therapies for patients at Reichbach Center at 2415 University Parkway, Building 3, Suite 215. Individuals and caregivers seeking relief from severe depression or other mental health concerns are encouraged to explore their options by contacting 941-213-4444.

Established in 2016, Reichbach Center stands as one of the pioneer full-time ketamine clinics in the state, specializing in the treatment of chronic pain and mental health disorders. The center also provides medical cannabis assessments and expertise in emergent psychotropic treatments, including psilocybin, MDMA and mescaline. Committed to integrating evolving psychedelic therapies into its practice as research progresses and data accumulates, its providers advocate for their patients and the community at large when it comes to mental health and overall well-being.

Dr. Reichbach and Reichbach Center’s employees offer some effective ways to prioritize mental health:

  • Practice self-care: Self-care practices include activities like meditation, mindfulness, journaling and engaging in hobbies that bring joy and relaxation.
  • Get moving: Regular physical activity can reduce anxiety and depression symptoms, boost mood and improve overall mental well-being.
  • Prioritize sleep: Keep a consistent sleep schedule: create a relaxing bedtime routine and ensure a comfortable environment to promote better sleep and enhance mental resilience.
  • Seek support: Confide in a friend or family member, join a support group or reach out to a therapist or counselor who can provide helpful tools and treatments.

When it comes to treatment, Dr. Reichbach emphasizes the efficacy of ketamine in addressing treatment-resistant depression, chronic pain and various mental health conditions. He stated, "Reichbach Center remains dedicated to evidence-based mental health and pain care solutions, including ketamine therapy and medical cannabis, which offer renewed hope to individuals who have not found relief through conventional methods."

Ketamine has demonstrated effectiveness in treating a spectrum of conditions spanning from depression and anxiety to neuropathic and chronic pain. Notably, up to 90% of patients with severe depression, PTSD and other mood disorders have experienced significant improvement with ketamine, often after just one infusion, unlike conventional antidepressants. Ketamine infusion therapy has exhibited sustained benefits for adults suffering from anxiety disorders; chronic fatigue syndrome; various forms of depression, including unipolar, bipolar and postpartum; obsessive-compulsive disorder; post-traumatic stress disorder; and suicidal ideations.

Dr. Reichbach, a graduate of the State University of New York Upstate Medical University, brings over two decades of experience with ketamine to his practice. Board-certified in anesthesiology since 1994, he served as a partner in an anesthesiology group in New York before relocating to Sarasota in 2015. Dr. Reichbach's expertise is recognized by his memberships in esteemed medical associations, including the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the Florida Society of Anesthesiologists, the American Medical Association and the American Society of Ketamine Physicians, Psychotherapists, and Practitioners.

Like most drugs, ketamine can be used, misused, and abused by people wishing to do so. What we also know is that ketamine can be an effective tool in treating difficult cases of depression, anxiety, PTSD, and suicidal ideations in a relatively short period of time.
