DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Feb. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Delray Center for Healing, a leading provider of mental health services in the United States, announced today that it is offering BrainsWay's Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (Deep TMS) therapy for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) at its facility in Delray Beach, Florida. The Delray Center for Healing will be the first mental health facility in Florida to do so.
"As a unique outpatient mental health treatment center, bridging the gap between a traditional psychiatry office and a residential program, we are thrilled to add Deep TMS for OCD to our clinical arsenal," said Raul Rodriguez, founder and medical director at Delray Center for Healing. "To date, we have implemented Deep TMS for patients suffering from depression with very positive response rates, and we are excited to see similar results with our patients suffering from OCD."
Deep TMS is a revolutionary non-invasive technology that works by sending magnetic pulses into the deepest structures of the anterior cingulate cortex, the region of the brain that is responsible for OCD. Clinical studies have shown positive results in response rates among patients. As a non-invasive treatment, Deep TMS does not require hospitalization, anesthesia or have systemic side effects.
According to a 2016 survey, 18.3 percent of adults in the United States experienced a mental illness within the year surveyed. In Florida, 61.7 percent of people with mental illness did not receive any treatment for their mental illness, which is nearly 6 percent higher than the national average. Florida is also ranked 44th among U.S. states in access to mental health professionals, leaving many patients with limited resources for necessary treatment.
Delray Center for Healing follows an adaptive and holistic clinical approach, creating treatment plans that cater to each patient's particular needs. In addition to Deep TMS, treatments that patients can receive include pharmacotherapy, acupuncture, massage, intravenous vitamin therapy, intravenous medication infusions, advanced exercise programs, yoga and meditation. Additionally, the center follows a Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) treatment philosophy and offers individual psychotherapy, group psychotherapy, family therapy and DBT skills training.
