TMS therapy is most commonly known as a treatment for depression. It got approval from the FDA in the mid-2000s for being a safe and effective way of treating depression when traditional methods of fighting depression have not worked. There is a sizable amount of scientific and anecdotal evidence that backs up and supports the health claims made by TMS therapy doctors and technicians. For many, they can achieve full remission for up to a year or more. There are limited discomfort and side effects associated with these treatments. Because the therapy has worked so well for depression, many researchers have begun to ask if TMS can help other problems related to the brain and a lack of activity.

More recently, evidence has emerged that suggests TMS therapy helps individuals suffering from addiction withdrawal. The TMS Neuro Institute estimates that 20 million people (yearly) are affected by substance addiction. They also claim that TMS therapy could decrease neural activity in the regions of the brain that are overreacting as a result of substance use and withdrawal. The hope is that transcranial magnetic stimulation can quell a person’s addiction.
