Ketamine availability in New Zealand

Where can you be treated?


Ketamine has limited availability in New Zealand. The pioneering clinic run by Professor Paul Glue in Otago still treats patients within the Southern District Health Board. Several studies have taken place in New Zealand and research is ongoing.

A private North Island ketamine clinic will open in Tauranga in mid 2020.

Patients who are interested in ketamine treatment should obtain a referral to one of these clinics from their GP or Psychiatrist.
