Non-Invasive, Drug Free Treatment
Helps Those Suffering From Depression
16 million people suffer depression in this country and 6 million of them do not respond to treatment by medication.
Effects of depression can include physical issues, like headaches, stomach pain, sexual dysfunction and a weakened immune system. It can also cause poor coping skills, social isolation, problems at school or work, family and marital problems and anxiety. Attempts to self-medicate with drugs or alcohol can lead to increased problems and possible trouble with the law, as well as loss of interest in life, self-mutilation and may drive a person to attempt suicide.
- More than 1 in 10 physician office visits have depression indicated on the medical record.*

HPR Treatment Centers uses Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) to provide FDA - approved depression treatment. TMS is non-invasive and drug-free and is performed while comfortably seated, as an in-office procedure.
Treatment for depression with medication has a long list of side effects and may not be effective. In contrast, the most common side effect associated with TMS therapy is temporary discomfort, at or near the treatment site, during treatment. Typically this only occurs during the first week of treatment. In clinical trials, fewer than 5% of patients discontinued treatment with TMS therapy due to the discomfort.
In addition to treating depression, HPR Treatment Centers uses TMS to treat anxiety, OCD, and PTSD.
