New esketamine program for treatment-resistant depression

NORTHAMPTON – ServiceNet, a provider of community mental health services in western Massachusetts, is launching a new esketamine program at its Northampton clinic for people experiencing treatment-resistant depression. Though preciously limited to those with substantial financial means, this breakthrough treatment approved by the FDA in 2019 is now covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare and MassHealth.
