Our services include TMS therapy, which we use in mental health recovery and addiction therapy programs.
People with substance use disorders often struggle with mental health issues. Major depression, for instance, is common among those who experience addiction symptoms. When these conditions co-occur, treatment may become more challenging. Fortunately, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), provided in TMS therapy programs, can ease depression symptoms and make addiction recovery more achievable.
At Promont Wellness, we specialize in treating co-occurring disorders such as depression and addiction. Our services include TMS therapy, which we use in mental health recovery and addiction therapy programs. That’s just part of our commitment to providing compassionate, quality care.
Though it might seem strange, the human brain runs on chemistry-based electricity, which activates nerve cells known as neurons. These scientific facts form the basis of TMS therapy programs. TMS uses a magnetic field to stimulate the brain in controlled ways. This clinically-proven therapy can produce positive changes in nerve cell output, reducing depression and addiction symptoms.
At Promont Wellness, the magnetic field we use in our TMS therapy programs is non-invasive. For this and other reasons, TMS therapy provides a safe alternative to older methods of altering brain function, such as electroconvulsive therapy (ECT).
In TMS therapy programs, treatment specialists generally use multiple devices according to set procedures. These include:
Magnetism used in TMS therapy at Promont Wellness produces electrical impulses that stimulate targeted areas of the brain, which may have beneficial effects on nerve cells. This therapy is critical to treating many of our patients’ mental health and addiction symptoms.
TMS therapy for mental health treatment is ideal for addressing major depression. Symptoms may include:
People with this type of depression typically experience recurring episodes during which symptoms last most of the day, nearly every day, and cause noticeable problems.
TMS therapy programs may successfully reduce symptoms of treatment-resistant depression. Treatment-resistant means the condition has not responded well to:
In addition to relieving depression, research shows that TMS therapy for mental health treatment may successfully address symptoms of anxiety disorders and schizophrenia.
Research also supports the efficacy of TMS therapy for addiction treatment. In particular, it may benefit those who have experience addiction symptoms associated with a stimulant, such as amphetamine, methamphetamine, or cocaine.
There are numerous possible advantages to enrolling in TMS therapy programs for addiction treatment at Promont Wellness, especially if you have co-occurring disorders. For instance, undergoing TMS for depression may significantly reduce depression symptoms. Since depression is often a substantial risk factor for addiction, alleviated symptoms can lower the risk of substance use and increase the success rate of addiction therapy programs.

“I’d like to thank Courtney from the bottom of my heart. She helped me through the scary process of getting into treatment and then treated me with respect and compassion. The treatment process was scary, vulnerable and uncomfortable, but she did everything she could to make me feel as comfortable as possible. I have become an active member of the recovery community and could not have done it without the guidance and expertise Courtney provided throughout treatment.”
