NUNNELLY, Tenn., Nov. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Elements Behavioral Health, the owner of behavioral health programs located throughout the United States, announced today that together with HPR Treatment Centers, it is offering BrainsWay’s Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (Deep TMS) for the treatment of depression. The company is first introducing Deep TMS to its facility in Nunnelly, Tennessee, The Ranch℠, which will be the first of three locations to receive the device.

“Since our founding, we have been committed to providing the highest quality of care for addiction and mental health illnesses,” says Kirk Kureska, Chief Executive Officer at Elements Behavioral Health. “Depression in Tennessee affects over 200,000 adults, and we are dedicated to providing the best care to those in need of relief in our area. We are excited to roll out BrainsWay’s cutting edge technology into our facilities over the next few months, providing a solution for an unmet need in so many regions.”

The Ranch is a comprehensive treatment center for substance use disorders, eating disorders, sex addiction and intimacy disorders, in addition to treating mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, dual diagnosis and trauma.

The Ranch will be adding Deep TMS to its offerings that include equine therapy, expressive art therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and a labyrinth, among other integrative and experiential approaches. Delivering this broad range of therapies is a treatment team with diverse skills, including master’s level therapists, nurses, psychiatrists and other skilled professionals.

Deep TMS utilizes a unique, patented device that generates magnetic stimulation of neurological targets shown to be responsible for brain disorders, including depression. The treatment stimulates deeper and broader brain regions than alternative TMS systems, bringing significant improvement to patients. It is an outpatient procedure and does not require hospitalization or anesthesia, and has no systemic side effects
