Ketamine Infusion Therapy

An exciting new development for treatment-resistant depression. Ketamine, originally used as an anesthetic, showed promising benefits as an antidepressant over a decade ago. Ketamine acts on a different area of the brain than standard antidepressants, which may explain why people may respond to it when they do not have success with other medications.

Individual & Family Therapy

Therapy is a very useful tool to help address and resolve problematic behaviors, thoughts, and beliefs. It offers a safe space to explore our feelings and desires, it helps us gain perspective, and it provides the tools to become more self-aware and obtain better insight.

Medical Marijuana

Medical marijuana has helped many people with various ailments. In the psychiatric setting, New York State has approved medical marijuana certifications in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder. In order to receive the most benefit from this treatment modality, it is important to find a provider who has the proper training to manage the medication. At Jeff Ditzell Psychiatry, our psychiatrists are not only certified in medical marijuana, they are also qualified Addiction Psychiatrists. This training lends them an added level of expertise to help find the proper course of treatment.

Life Optimization Coaching

Our coaching program was developed to optimize our clients’ lives – both personally and professionally. If you are ready to level up and commit to success, this program is for you.

Psychiatric Consultations

If you feel like something isn’t right but you’re unsure what it is, a psychiatric consultation may help you gain a better understanding. Psychiatric consultations are also good if you’re looking for a second opinion on a diagnosis, medication, or treatment plan.

Fit For Duty Evaluations

If you are a student applying for a service academy or ROTC and have previously been diagnosed with a mental health condition, you may need to apply for a waiver. This process requires a psychiatrist to evaluate the student and determine if he/she is mentally prepared/capable of such an undertaking. Our Psychiatrists have served in the Army and know what it takes to succeed.

Buprenorphine Treatment

Buprenorphine is a medication that can aid in the treatment of certain addictions. This particular medication is highly regulated and requires the physician to have additional training and certifications in order to prescribe. Being addiction psychiatrists, our doctors have the skillset and certifications to successfully use this medication in their treatment regimen.

Legal Case Review 

Some court cases require expert testimony from a Psychiatrist to help evaluate components of the case. Not only do our providers testify for our patients, but we have also been brought in as third-party reviewers for ongoing cases.
