Nation’s Largest Chain of Ketamine Wellness Clinics Introduces First-of-Its-Kind Virtual Programming to Help Patients’ Loved Ones Prepare for Life After Ketamine Infusion Experience
VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 18, 2021 – Delic Holdings Corp (“Delic”) (CSE: DELC) (OTCQB: DELCF) (FRA: 6X0) (Original Source), a leader in new medicines and treatments for a modern world, today introduced its Family Support & Education program at Ketamine Wellness Centers (KWC), the largest chain of wellness centers providing ketamine treatments in the U.S. KWC was recently acquired by Delic and operates 10 ketamine infusion treatment clinics across eight states that have delivered more than 60,000 treatments to date across Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Minnesota, Nevada, Texas and Washington.
KWC’s Family Support & Education program is a unique, free program specifically designed by medical professionals to help families, significant others and loved ones meaningfully support patients that have chosen to pursue ketamine infusion treatments. While ketamine represents a new class of medicines that have revolutionized therapies to treat depression, its rapid effects and benefits can quickly change family and relationship dynamics. KWC’s virtual Family Support & Education sessions will address pertinent topics, including what friends and family can expect from the process, roles they can take to support the patient during treatment, and how they can prepare for the rapid positive changes in their loved ones’ lives.
Each hour-long session will be led by Kevin Nicholson, CEO of KWC and Chief Operating Officer for Delic, who has over 20 years of clinical and healthcare management experience. In addition to providing patients’ families with resources and actionable guidance, the program also allows participants to connect in a safe, supportive and community-centered environment.
“After delivering over 60,000 treatments across the country, our team recognized a distinct demand from patients’ loved ones to better understand and support the holistic impacts of ketamine infusion therapy and how they can support the healing,” said Nicholson. “The long-term success of these treatments often depends on the quality of patients’ surrounding environments once they leave our clinics. We look forward to equipping our patients’ support circles with the necessary tools and resources to ensure their overall health and wellness.”
“Delic is proud to offer this free and vital service to help our patient communities across the U.S. receive the support they need during this challenging period of their lives,” said Matt Stang, co-founder and CEO of Delic. “Since 2015 KWC has been a leader in providing personalized, effective and affordable mental health treatments for conditions such as major depression, anxiety and PTSD, and this initiative is another example of doing the right thing and leading by example. We are confident that Kevin’s team will guide these families through this journey with the same attention and care they provide all their patients through the Family Support & Education program.”
KWC’s national network of clinics adds to Delic’s existing portfolio of two clinics operated by Ketamine Infusion Centers LLC (“KIC”) in California and Arizona, cementing its position as the leading and largest wellness provider in the country. Delic expects to open 15 additional clinics across the country over the coming 18 months, further expanding access to millions who can benefit from new medicines and treatments for a variety of mental health conditions and adds to their position as a central hub of education, media, and cultural conversations around these new medicines and treatments. With a recent successful private placement of CAD$7MM, Delic is actively scouting new locations in cities with a growing patient base.
