Electroconvulsive Therapy

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is most commonly used to treat patients with severe depression who fail to respond to medications or who are unable to tolerate the side effects associated with the medications. ECT may also be the treatment of choice for patients who need a more rapid response than medications can provide, including those who are severely agitated, delusional, suicidal, not eating or drinking, and those who suffer from catatonia.

The use of ECT is not limited to the treatment of depression, but may also be used to stabilize bipolar illness during extreme episodes of mania or depression. ECT can also be used to halt psychotic episodes associated with schizophrenia. Once the patient is stabilized, medications are started or resumed

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy

Good Samaritan offers Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) treatment. TMS is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS is typically used when other depression treatments haven’t been effective. Depression is a treatable condition, but for some people, standard treatments aren’t effective. Repetitive TMS is typically used when standard treatments such as medications and talk therapy (psychotherapy) don’t work.
