Depression is an issue that affects more people than most may realize, yet everyone’s experience with it is unique due to its many symptoms and causes. So while there may never be a single answer to breaking free from depression, many options are finally available for those struggling.

From conventional treatments like medication or talk therapy to alternative treatments like TMS therapy and Ketamine, the key is finding what works best for you!

We offer various treatment options at Solace Psychiatry Clinic to find your path toward healing. If you’re struggling with depression, consider these three ways to break free and find relief:

TMS Therapy

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive, medication-free treatment for depression. TMS therapy involves placing a magnetic coil over the scalp, which delivers magnetic pulses to stimulate nerve cells in the brain. TMS therapy is FDA-approved and is effective in treating depression in people who have not responded well to other treatments.

Unlike medication, TMS therapy has little to no side effects – not only can you resume your daily activities after each session, but you can finally enjoy them without the lingering side effects of traditional meds.

TMS treatment sessions are painless and typically take less than an hour. Most people require several sessions to achieve optimal results, so our team will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan that fits your needs.

Spravato

Spravato is a prescription nasal spray that is taken alongside oral antidepressants to treat treatment-resistant depression (TRD), symptoms of major depressive disorder (MDD) in adults with suicidal thoughts or actions, and depression for which at least two antidepressants have not yet worked.

Unlike traditional antidepressants, this medication increases glutamate in the brain, allowing new synapses to form between neurons. It’s administered through a self-administered nasal spray that you take under medical supervision. The process is simple and painless! You’ll take three doses spaced five minutes apart, and the treatment plan will be tailored to your needs.

Psychiatry

As a specialized branch of medicine, psychiatry focuses on diagnosing, treating, and preventing mental illness.

Our team at Solace offers a variety of personalized treatments, so whether you’re dealing with major depressive disorder, bipolar depression, dysthymia, adjustment disorders, or complicated grieving, we can help.\

With blood tests and pharmacogenetic testing as needed, we can also rule out underlying medical conditions that may be contributing to your symptoms to ensure you receive the most effective care.
