Get Relief from Depression Without Taking a Pill! TMS Therapy in Morristown
Depression is a serious illness, but there are effective treatments that help many people. However, for some, the standard treatments such as medication and lifestyle changes just don’t work. If you’ve tried one or more of these treatments and are still suffering, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may offer some relief. Hope Peace Recovery Treatment Centers offers TMS therapy at a convenient location in Morristown, NJ. With more than 2,150,000 sessions provided to over 65,000 people, TMS therapy is a proven treatment for depression.
What Is TMS?
TMS therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment for depression. Magnetic pulses are used to stimulate the prefrontal cortex of the brain. This part of the brain regulates mood, and in people with depression, it doesn’t function at a normal level.
When you have TMS therapy at HPR Treatment Centers in Morristown, a technician places an electromagnetic coil gently on your head. They turn the device on, and the coil emits magnetic pulses that penetrate the prefrontal cortex. This stimulates the prefrontal cortex to help it work more effectively.
TMS therapy is a highly effective depression treatment, as our patient testimonials show.

Covered by Most Insurance

How Is TMS Different from Other Depression Treatments?
TMS therapy is different from other treatments:
1. TMS Is Drug-Free
Because TMS therapy is completely drug free, it’s a good option for people who:
- Don’t benefit fully from anti-depressant medication
- Can’t tolerate the side effects of medication
- Don’t want to take anti-depressant drugs
Anti-depressants do help people, but not everyone can or wants to take them. TMS therapy can be a good alternative to get relief from depression.
2. TMS Therapy Is Non-Invasive.
Other depression treatments include deep brain stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation, and electroconvulsive therapy. These can be effective, but they involve invasive surgery or unpleasant procedures, as well as anesthesia.
TMS therapy is effective and non-invasive. You sit comfortably awake and alert throughout treatment.
3. TMS Treatment Is Almost Side-Effect Free.
Fewer than 5% of people stop TMS treatment due to side effects. For those people who have side effects, the most common is discomfort at or near the treatment site, during treatment sessions. This discomfort usually subsides 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?
When you start having TMS therapy, you’ll likely notice positive mood changes within three weeks. For some people, this happens even sooner!
The benefits of TMS therapy are long-term, but some people need occasional booster treatments to stay free from depression. If you need booster treatments, it will likely be just a few consecutive treatments per year.
Does Insurance Cover TMS Therapy?
Most insurance carriers provide coverage for TMS therapy because this treatment is clinically proven to be effective for depression treatment. For most people, insurance also covers booster treatments.
