Most people will eliminate ketamine from their bodies within four to eight hours, but that isn’t always going to be the case for everyone. There are a number of factors that can affect the amount of time it takes to be rid of ketamine. Just some of these factors are outlined below.
Not only that, but increased dosages, and repeated usage in a session, will prolong the amount of time it takes for ketamine to leave your system.

Depending on the type of test that is conducted, ketamine can appear in your system much longer.
It is thought that people who have better hydration will eradicate the drug from their system faster, which is opposite for those who have poorer hydration habits. It is expected to stay in the system longer.
Not every person will suffer with the same withdrawal symptoms, but there is a chance that you will experience some as your body gets rid of the drug. These symptoms could be physical, psychological, or a mix. We created a ketamine withdrawal timeline resource to provide more information on this topic.
The worst of the symptoms should clear within a couple of weeks, but prolonged use of the drug can lead to long-term side effects and medical issues.
You may have decided that you would like to stop taking ketamine, particularly if you are noticing any of the addiction signs and symptoms. Some people choose to detox from ketamine at home, but others prefer to find a clinic environment so they can be supported through the withdrawal symptom period.
Withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable, so choosing the right environment can make the difference between a successful and unsuccessful detox.
A clinic environment may be more appropriate for those who require a medical team who have experience in assisting those with multiple addictions.
If you are trying to find a suitable place for a detox from ketamine, we invite you to learn more about our facilities here at Delamere.
Our admissions team is available to book you into our detox and rehab programme, or answer any questions you may have about the process. You can speak to a member of our team over the phone at the time most convenient for you.
