What Is TMS?

TMS is a non-invasive treatment modality for people suffering with depression. It uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain and subsequently improve symptoms. TMS is a safe, effective and approved form of depression symptom management and is ideal for people who don’t respond to or can’t take depression medications for whatever reason. If you or your loved one are struggling with depression related to your substance use disorder, TMS therapy can be a viable component in your overall recovery plan. Though generally safe, TMS should be only be conducted by an experienced and qualified professional and is not meant as a substitute for any other element of treatment, such as counseling or group therapy.
