Ketamine clinics are on the rise as administration and off-label use of ketamine for the treatment of PTSD, anxiety, depression, and other issues has become more prevalent. Ketamine is a Schedule III controlled substance in the United States, and as such, ketamine clinics are strictly regulated under both federal and state law. Our experienced healthcare attorneys at Ritter Spencer Cheng can assist you in navigating ownership, licensing, administration, and other matters for ketamine clinics.


Ketamine clinic regulations vary from state to state. For example, in Texas, ketamine clinic ownership is governed by the Corporate Practice of Medicine (CPOM) doctrine. The CPOM doctrine is a legal doctrine that generally prohibits corporations, entities, or non-physicians from practicing medicine in Texas. Thus, ketamine clinics must be owned by licensed physicians in Texas.  Our healthcare lawyers are adept at navigating and guiding you through the various regulations governing ketamine clinics or ketamine administration, including the United States Drug Enforcement Agency registration.
