Default Ketamine infusions

My son succesfully had ketamine infusions at the beginning of the year. He is now going to live in another state. He’ll need a new psychiatrist and a place for maintenance infusions. I’m looking for a psychiatrist around the Durham area of New Hampshire that can prescribe and monitor ketamine infusions and/or possibly nasal spray. The ketamine advocacy group has a place in NH to get the infusion but they require a psychiatrist to monitor. His current psychiatrist doesn’t feel comfortable monitoring it and he will be too far away from his current ketamine provider to use them.

Any recommendations??

Thanks

There are no infusion centers near where I live, but my psychiatrist was willing to prescribe intranasal ketamine. I get it from a compounding pharmacy: the pharmacist there has been very helpful.

Have you looked into McLean Hospital? I kow they do it in conjunction with ECT, but not sure if they use it alone.
