National Suicide Prevention Month: Reichbach Center Offers Resources, Options

As a national center for the treatment of chronic pain and mental health disorders, Reichbach Center joins the efforts led by the National Alliance on Mental Illness to spread the word about getting help for suicidal thoughts. In light of a global pandemic and more isolated lifestyle changes across the nation, these thoughts and struggles are becoming a part of daily living for many. Interventions exist for these thoughts, which are often rooted in anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress and other mental health disorders. Individuals and caregivers seeking treatment for mental health needs are encouraged to call 941-213-4444 to learn about their options or be seen at 2415 University Parkway, Building 3, Suite 215. Those in crisis are encouraged to dial 988 to call the national 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline for immediate help with difficult or suicidal thoughts.

Depression and anxiety of all types can be debilitating, and some forms can be more covert than others. Seeking help can be a very difficult choice to make. If someone is struggling but doesn’t even believe that they should be, it makes getting support more difficult. Many people experience mental health improvements with therapy, lifestyle changes, medications or a combination of all three. Additionally, there are treatment-resistant forms of mental health disorders as well as treatments that do not adequately relieve symptoms. Reichbach Center specializes in one newer treatment that is offering hope: ketamine.

Accompanied by support from mental health providers, ketamine infusion therapy has shown to offer exceptional outcomes to patients coping with trauma, treatment-resistant depression and more. 

Ketamine infusion has been shown to provide sustained improvement in adults experiencing:

  • Depression, including unipolar depression (major depression), bipolar depression and postpartum depression.
  • Anxiety disorders.
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder.
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder.
  • Suicidal ideation.

“At Reichbach Center, we are proud to provide hope through a new pathway for our patient-guests to experience relief from a range of mood disorders and transform their lives,” says Reichbach Center President and Founder Dr. Steven Reichbach, “We believe everyone deserves relief, and we can help families and their loved ones navigate difficult thoughts and feelings with the right resources.”

Dr. Reichbach is a graduate of the State University of New York Upstate Medical University.
