Treatment and Staff
As mentioned, all clients go through a thorough psychiatric assessment before beginning a program. Detox services are not available on-site, though referrals are available upon request. TMS of South Tampa does not offer individual or group therapy. Instead, those approved for treatment go through a structured and individualized regimen of Neurostar TMS. While the initial session may differ from the others to calibrate therapy, follow-up appointments can be as short as 15 minutes. Treatment plans typically meet five days a week for six weeks. Though the process may cause slight discomfort while it happens, the procedure is non-invasive and not typically painful.
The staff at TMS South Tampa consists of MDs, psychiatrists and TMS technicians.
In addition to the above, the facility also offers a follow-up course of treatment which consists of six additional appointments spread out over three weeks. The organization also has additional locations in Hyde Park, Brandon and St. Petersburg, which offer the same services. Those in need of referrals to outside facilities for additional psychiatric support can receive them upon request.
Overall, TMS of South Tampa is a highly specialized option for clients struggling with a variety of mental illnesses. All programs rely exclusively on TMS with referrals provided for other support for addiction or co-occurring disorders. Though the services are scientifically proven to have some application, they may or may not be covered by clients’ insurance.
