Alternative Treatments

For people with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), long-term remission becomes less likely with each prescription medication treatment attempt. As antidepressant medication increases, so can side effects and the potential for treatment failure. We offer two therapies as alternatives or in conjunction with your current plan: TMS therapy and esketamine treatments. 

TMS Therapy for Depression

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) Therapy can help people who struggle with MDD even after taking antidepressant medication. It helps activate the natural function of the brain’s neurotransmitters using a non-invasive magnetic field to stimulate areas of the brain that are underactive in depression. Our caring and supportive team can help decide if TMS therapy is an option for you.

Esketamine Nasal Spray for Depression

Spravato® (esketamine) nasal spray is a proven treatment option for depression. Esketamine nasal spray is generally used in conjunction with your current antidepressant and is self-administered under the supervision of a healthcare professional.
