The Carolina Center for Behavioral Health is home to the Brain Stimulation Center, which provides Brainsway transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) for patients with severe cases of depression who have not benefited from traditional treatment.
Brainsway TMS is a safe and non-invasive treatment that stimulates brain regions with brief magnetic pulses to alleviate severe depression. The procedure does not involve anesthesia or affect memory. TMS produces no systemic side effects, is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and only requires 20-minute daily sessions over a four- to five-week period.
Please read our Brainsway TMS brochure.
ECT is a safe and effective treatment for people who are unresponsive to traditional therapy and medication management. It provides another option for relief of severe depression and suicidal thoughts. The procedure can be life-saving and is proven to relieve mania and acute psychosis.
The Carolina Center for Behavioral Health offers ECT as inpatient and outpatient treatment. The procedure is administered at our facility under the supervision of a psychiatrist, anesthesiologist, and an ECT nursing team.
