Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
WHAT IS TMS?
IS DEEP TMS FOR YOU?
if you are dealing with depression, deep TMS treatment is one of the many available treatments at Beaches Behavioral. Every patient at Beaches Behavioral has a comprehensive evaluation to determine if they have depression. About 30% of people with addictions have depression. Treatment of depression improves the outcomes of addiction therapy and improves quality of life.
WHEN IS TMS A GOOD CHOICE?
Patients are provided Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy and non-addictive antidepressant medications for the treatment of depression. While these treatments are often very helpful, not every person responds to these treatments. That is when deep TMS should be considered. Deep TMS is an excellent treatment option when other treatments are inadequate.
Standard treatment involves one 20 minute deep TMS session per day at our office five days per week, for four to six weeks.
