About Cambridge Biotherapies™

Many people find Cambridge Biotherapies™ at a critical time in their life.

Cambridge Biotherapies™ is a treatment-to-wellness center. We use ketamine therapy, ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, TMS, and medication management to address many mental health conditions. Our service begins with a full evaluation of the best way to treat each patient. This may involve a single or multiple treatments for an integrated approach to wellness. Our job is not done until our patients recover.

Hospitals often feel cold and impersonal, but Cambridge Biotherapies™ fuses the latest technology and research with a comfortable, home-like environment. Our treatments are conducted by one clinician with one patient at a time, giving you privacy and an opportunity to engage in a safe and supportive relationship.

Quotes from Dr. Brenner (feel free to edit as you see fit) Ketamine, TMS, and Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy are groundbreaking treatments for Depression and Anxiety. They work faster than any interventions we have developed in Psychiatry thus far. They are also more effective and safer. We’re delighted to bring these proven therapies to the Amherst area.

We’ve looked forward to expanding into Amherst for a couple of years.
