Recovery Unplugged offers intuitive and effective transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy for eligible patients suffering from co-occurring addiction and depression and anxiety. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reports that over nine million Americans currently struggle with simultaneous substance use disorder and mental illness. Approximately 60 percent of alcoholics with depression continue to experience depression even after they stop drinking.
Therapies like TMS, when offered alongside other treatment elements as a comprehensive treatment plan, can help you or your loved one effectively manage the mental health issues that have led to and sustained your alcohol or drug use. Recovery Unplugged offers TMS therapy in Florida, Texas and at all of our locations throughout the United States.
Recovery Unplugged has partnered with trusted and reputable TMS therapy innovator BransWay to offer what is called deep TMS therapy. BrainsWay offers a more in-depth and comfortable form of TMS therapy through state-of-the-art and ergonomically friendly equipment. Their FDA-cleared devices have also proven effective in the treatment obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and smoking cessation. BrainsWay is distinct from other types of TMS treatment provider due, in part, to the unique and patient-friendly architecture of its H-Coil, which designed to maximize electrical stimulation of deep brain regions. The coil is designed to comfortably accommodate all head sizes and offers convergence of numerous electric pulses from various directions.

TMS is covered by most health insurance providers for the treatment of depression.
TMS is painless and non-invasive, but there may be minor temporary discomfort at spots on the head where the coil is applied.
TMS therapy typically takes around 30-40 minutes per session. A typical course lasts around four to six weeks.
Data compiled from a collection of studies shows consistently promising results of TMS therapy for the intervention in depression. Most TMS therapy providers report 70 to 80 percent condition relief and a little more than half experience partial or complete remission from their depression symptoms. TMS has also been used in the treatment of:
While medication can be an effective means of treating depression, it can also lead to tolerance, withdrawal and subsequent dependency. Additionally, some recent data has shown that who used antidepressants had a 14 percent higher risk of heart attacks and strokes and a 33 percent greater risk of death. These drugs, after prolonged use, can create long-term changes in the brain’s chemistry that create a whole different set of problems. TMS therapy also may be preferable to antidepressants because you don’t have to engage with the therapy every day, unlike with pharmacological interventions. When administered alongside therapy, counseling and occupational therapies, TMS can be a game-changing advantage for depression sufferers who have been impacted by substance use disorder.
Eligibility for TMS therapy will be determined by your or your loved one’s doctors, care team and case manager. Criteria that may determine eligibility include:
If you’ve been battling prolonged depression and have had little success with other treatment interventions, make sure you tell your doctor or mental health professional. TMS may be covered by major insurance companies to treat depression. Check with your insurance provider if you are unsure about your resources and scope of coverage. Our admissions staff will also conduct a full insurance verification on your behalf.
The Recovery Unplugged TMS process is a painless and straightforward experience. Our clinician places an electromagnetic coil comfortably on your scalp near your forehead. The electromagnet painlessly delivers a magnetic pulse that stimulates nerve cells in the region of your brain associated with depression. Treatment sessions generally last between 30 – 40 minutes and are painless. Each of one of our practitioners has been thoroughly trained in the therapy and understand how to maximize safety and effectiveness. The process is recommended and implemented only after you or your loved one have a thorough physical and psychiatric evaluation by our doctors and psychiatrists.
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.
