Get Relief from Depression Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in Jacksonville
Although depression is a treatable illness, for many people, the standard treatments aren’t effective. If you have depression that hasn’t benefited from medication and lifestyle changes, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) could be the solution for you. Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers in Jacksonville, Florida offers TMS therapy. We have a proven track record of 2,150,000 sessions provided to over 65,000 people. With TMS therapy, you can find the joy in life again.
What Is TMS?
TMS is a non-invasive depression treatment that is medication-free. With TMS therapy, a magnetic field is used to stimulate the prefrontal cortex of your brain.
In a TMS therapy session, an HPR Treatment Centers technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. Once they turn the device on, the coil sends magnetic pulses to your prefrontal cortex. This helps the cells in that part of your brain to more effectively 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 important ways:
1. TMS Is Drug-Free
Not everyone’s depression benefits from antidepressant medications.
- Some people don’t get the expected benefits from medication.
- Some people can’t tolerate the side effects they have on medication.
- Some people simply prefer not to take medication to deal with their depression.
If you can’t or don’t want to take medication for depression, TMS therapy may be a viable alternative.
2. TMS Is Non-Invasive
There are other depression treatments, including electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), deep brain stimulation, and vagus nerve stimulation. But these involve invasive or unpleasant procedures and require anesthesia. TMS therapy is an alternative that isn’t invasive or unpleasant and doesn’t require anesthesia.
3. TMS Is Nearly Side-Effect Free.
Only 5% of people discontinue TMS therapy because of side effects. The side effect these people experience is typically limited to temporary discomfort at or near the treatment site. This generally occurs during a TMS session and goes away after the first week of treatment.

Just because you’ve suffered from anxiety and depression all of your life doesn’t mean you have to live with it forever. See how TMS is changing lives every day.
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 for TMS Therapy to Work?
Most people see some benefit from TMS therapy within two or three weeks of starting treatments. For some, the benefits come even sooner!
The positive effects of TMS therapy last a long time, but booster treatments are sometimes needed to stay free from depression. Most people who require booster treatments usually only need a few consecutive sessions a year. In most cases, insurance covers the cost of booster treatments.
Does Insurance Cover TMS Therapy?

What Else Should You Know about TMS Therapy in Jacksonville?
What to Expect During Your First Appointment
First you’ll fill out some paperwork, which usually takes around 15 minutes. Next you’ll meet with our psychiatrist for about 45 minutes. They’ll review your medical and mental-health history and discuss any questions or concerns you have. We want you to feel confident and comfortable with the process.
How Long Is the Treatment Schedule?
When you become a patient at HPR Treatment Centers Jacksonville, we’ll create a written schedule with full details of your course of treatment. You’ll receive this at the start of treatment, so you can make travel arrangements or any other accommodations you need to. A typical treatment schedule lasts four to six weeks.
Are You Eligible for TMS?
Most people with depression can benefit from TMS therapy, but a small number of people are ineligible for non-treatment-related reasons. This includes people who have non-removable metal in or on their head because magnetic energy reacts unfavorably with metal. You may be ineligible if you have any of the following:
- A medical device implanted in your head, such as a vagus nerve or deep brain stimulator, or a cochlear implant
- Bullets or shrapnel
- A facial tattoo that uses metallic or magnetic ink
- Some dental work (Most dental work is okay.)
How Long Is a TMS Treatment?
A session of TMS therapy at our Jacksonville HPR Treatment Center takes 18 to 19 minutes. A typical course of TMS therapy involves four to six weeks of treatment—up to five sessions a week.
