Local Wellness and Recovery Center Provides Options for Treatment-Resistant Depression

New Vitae Wellness and Recovery is providing readers the opportunity to learn more about their array of holistic behavioral health services, including deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS) to treat symptoms of depression, during an information session to be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on January 18.

Used with or without antidepressant medications, dTMS is an evidence-based, FDA-approved service that uses pulses to stimulate parts of the brain associated with the experience of depression. Shown to be safe and well-tolerated, this service permits individuals to experience relief from long-term symptoms with fewer side effects. dTMS is provided five days a week over four to six weeks in 20-minute sessions, and individuals are awake and alert during their appointments. Users are able to continue their daily routines while participating in services.

Most insurances, including Medicare, cover all or part of the costs associated with dTMS treatment. In order to begin services, users should have symptoms of depression and a recommendation from their physician. The Recovery Center can assist with initiating services and working with insurance providers.

Information session attendees will hear more about the treatment and other holistic offerings, see the device, and speak to staff and others that have had success with dTMS.

Cost: Free. Location: The Recovery Center, 16 S. Main St., Quakertown. For more information or to preregister, contact Tracy at 215-538-3403, ext. 323, or visit NewVitaeWellness.com. December 2017
