Achieve TMS East, with 12 locations, is the largest provider of Brainsway’s Deep TMS in Massachusetts. Deep TMS therapy is used for the treatment of depression and OCD. Major depression is one of the most common psychiatric disorders in the United States and affects over 15 million adults overall. OCD affects over 2 million adults each year and approximately 50 percent of patients are resistant to first line treatments. Deep TMS therapy is launching a new era in the treatment of depression and OCD and offers hope to those that are suffering from these diseases.
Brainsway’s Deep TMS, a safe, non-invasive treatment, is based on patents filed by the National Institute of Health and has been FDA (Federal Drug Administration) approved for the treatment of depression since 2013 and OCD since 2018. Deep TMS treatment affects the regions of the brain associated with depression and OCD, bringing significant improvement to patients. The brief outpatient treatments allow for little to no disruption in a patient’s daily activity. Immediately after treatment, patients are able to drive home and return to their daily routine, including work commitments.
