Get Relief from Depression Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in Millburn

If you’re still suffering after trying them, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may help. Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers is conveniently located in Millburn, New Jersey.

What Is TMS?
TMS is a depression treatment that is non-invasive and doesn’t involve the use of any drugs. In TMS therapy, the prefrontal cortex of your brain is stimulated with a magnetic field. This helps brain cells function and regulate your mood more effectively.
When you have TMS therapy at HPR Treatment Centers in Millburn, a technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. When they switch the device on, the coil sends magnetic pulses to your prefrontal cortex to help the brain cells regulate your mood.
TMS therapy is a highly effective depression treatment, as our patient testimonials show.

Covered by Most Insurance
TMS is covered by Medicare, TRICARE, and most private insurers for the treatment of major depressive disorder.
How Is TMS Different from Other Depression Treatments?
TMS therapy is different from other treatments in three significant ways:
1. TMS Is Drug-Free
This makes it a good option for people who:
- Don’t benefit fully from medication
- Can’t tolerate anti-depressant side effects
- Don’t want to take anti-depressants
Anti-depressants are effective for some people, but they’re not right for everyone. TMS therapy can be a good alternative depression treatment.
2. TMS Is Non-Invasive
Other depression treatments, like deep brain stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation, and electroconvulsive therapy, can be effective; however, these involve invasive surgery or unpleasant procedures, and require anesthesia. TMS is different—it’s an effective treatment that is non-invasive.
3. TMS Treatment Is Almost Side-Effect Free.
Fewer than 5% of patients stop having TMS therapy because of side effects. For those people, there can be discomfort at or near the treatment site, during treatment. This usually goes away after the first week of sessions.

If I could go back and talk to my depressed self, I think that all I’d really say is don’t wait. Don’t waste those months. Just do it. Make that change.
After the treatments were over, I realized that there was an accumulating sense of well-being, and that was something I had never experienced before. I was happy! I felt well!
I was in and out in 45 minutes and drove myself to and from. I had no side effects, wasn’t sleepy, and didn’t have an upset stomach. I actually had energy after a few treatments.
How Long Does It Take TMS Therapy to Work?
Most people see some positive changes to their mood in two or three weeks of starting treatment. For some people, it happens even sooner!
TMS therapy has long-term benefits, but some people need the occasional booster treatment to stay free from depression. If you need booster sessions, you’ll probably need only a few consecutive treatments per year. Most insurance covers booster treatments.
Does Insurance Cover TMS Therapy?
TMS therapy has documented success for medication-resistant depression, which means most insurance providers cover the procedure. Not sure about your insurance coverage? No problem! Just call HPR Treatment Centers at (877) 743-8643 for a complimentary insurance verification.
