Get Depression Relief Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in Highland Park
Depression is a treatable illness, but many common depression treatments aren’t effective for everyone. If standard treatments just don’t work for you, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) might be the solution. Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers is located conveniently in Highland Park, Illinois. Here we offer TMS therapy, a depression treatment that has provided more than 2,150,000 treatment sessions to over 65,000 people.
What Is TMS?
TMS is a depression treatment that’s non-invasive and doesn’t require medication. During sessions, magnetic pulses stimulate the prefrontal cortex. This part of the brain is responsible for regulating emotions, and magnetic stimulation aids these cells in controlling your emotions.
When you have a TMS session at HPR Treatment Centers in Highland Park, our technician gently places an electromagnetic coil on your head. When the device is turned on, the coil sends electromagnetic pulses to your prefrontal cortex, which help your brain regulate your mood.
TMS therapy is very effective at treating depression – just look at our patient testimonials!

Covered by Most Insurance
TMS is covered by Medicare, TRICARE, and most private insurers for the treatment of major depressive disorder.
TMS Is Different from Other Depression Treatments: How?
1. It’s Drug-Free.
TMS doesn’t involve the use of drugs, so it can help people who:
- Don’t fully benefit from anti-depressant medication
- Can’t tolerate medication’s side effects
- Don’t want to take taking anti-depressants
Many people benefit from taking anti-depressant medications, but not everyone does. If you’ve tried depression medication without seeing any benefit, or want to avoid medication, TMS therapy may offer a solution.
2. It’s Non-Invasive.
Other depression treatments, such as deep brain stimulation, electroconvulsive therapy, and vagus nerve stimulation, can be effective, but they require invasive surgery or unpleasant procedures, and anesthesia too.
TMS therapy is non-invasive, and you won’t need anesthesia.
3. It’s Almost Side-Effect Free.
TMS therapy can cause minor, short-lived side effects, like discomfort at or near the treatment site, that usually subside after the first week of treatment. Fewer than 5% of people who have TMS therapy stop the treatment due to side effects.

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 who have TMS therapy feel their mood begin to improve after two to three weeks of treatment. Some feel changes even sooner.
Although the effects of TMS last a long time, some patients occasionally need booster treatments to stay free from depression. Everyone’s schedule of booster treatments is different, but they’re generally only a few consecutive sessions a year. Your maintenance schedule will depend on your own needs and situation. Your psychiatrist will schedule them for you, if necessary.
Most insurance providers cover booster treatments.
