Ketamine is used in human anaesthesia and veterinary medicine (commonly as tranquiliser for horses). It can be inhaled, injected or mixed in drinks and is popular for providing feelings of euphoria. Unfortunately there are a number of adverse side effects, both physical and psychological. These include amnesia, the aggravation of some existing mental health conditions and bladder problems.

Ketamine does not induce dependence in the same way as drugs such as opiates or alcohol but its anaesthetic properties can lead to increased experience of pain when ceasing use. Broadway offers a medically assisted withdrawal package that manages both the physical effects of withdrawal with psychological support to overcome the addiction.
