Nation's Largest Ketamine Therapy Provider to Offer FDA-Approved Esketamine Nasal Spray to Veterans at Nine KWC Clinics
GILBERT, Ariz., Sept. 22, 2022 /CNW/ - Ketamine Wellness Centers (KWC), the largest ketamine therapy provider in the U.S. and a subsidiary of Delic Holdings Corp ("Delic" or the "Company") (CSE: DELC) (OTCQB: DELCF) (FRA: 6X0), has expanded its partnership with the Veterans Administration Community Care Network (VA-CCN) to cover SPRAVATO® treatments at select clinics. The partnership will allow VA-CCN patients experiencing treatment-resistant depression (TRD) to access treatments with prior authorization from the VA-CCN at the following KWC clinics: Mesa, Tucson, Phoenix, Denver, Seattle, Reno, Las Vegas, Houston and Dallas.
Administered with an oral depressant, SPRAVATO is the first FDA-approved esketamine nasal spray designed for adults experiencing TRD or depressive symptoms associated with MDD. Patients pursuing this treatment option work with the company's qualified intake and screening teams to ensure that SPRAVATO is the most effective option for them. KWC providers are trained and credentialed to administer SPRAVATO treatments in the right care and patient safety settings.
"KWC works every day to provide the best, most effective treatments to those who need them most and our veterans, who suffer from various mental health challenges such as PTSD, major depression and anxiety, deserve the highest quality care," said Kevin Nicholson, CEO of Delic and KWC. "Working with the Veterans Administration Community Care Network has allowed us to better serve these men and women and offer treatments such as SPRAVATO with positive, long-term benefits that get to the root cause. They have sacrificed so much for this country and we are committed to helping those who may need the support to recover and get control over their lives again."
Previously, KWC and VA-CCN established a partnership to offer ketamine treatments to veterans at no out-of-pocket cost at their locations in Naperville, Illinois, and Burnsville, Minnesota. The program offers treatment to patients experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), major depression and chronic pain who have experienced traditional medical treatments. KWC also offers a Hero Discount at clinics nationwide to cover partial out-of-pocket costs of the treatment for military veterans and first responders.
