Are you struggling with a mental illness, such as depression or anxiety? These mental health concerns are becoming more common in today’s society. While the rise in awareness has been great, many people still fail to address their problem with professional help. At BoardPrep’s mental health treatment center in Tampa, FL, we offer a unique, innovative, and evidence-based therapy for our clients. With our South Tampa TMS therapy program, you can safely overcome depression and begin leading a better, more exciting lifestyle.
What is a TMS Therapy Program?
Transcranial magnetic stimulation is one of the latest and greatest techniques in mental health treatment. During each session, which lasts about an hour, a device is used outside of the body to treat major depression. Specifically, this noninvasive procedure uses magnetic pulses to stimulate under-active areas of the brain.
A coil attaches to your prefrontal cortex. In fact, this part of the brain stimulates emotion. The machine will deliver pulses every 20 seconds, which are accompanied by a tapping sound, to produce a desirable response. This coil rests lightly on top of your scalp and never touches your skin.
Each session will last around an hour. In addition, you can relax during our TMS therapy program, reading a book or watching TV during the stimulation.
The most common side effects are headaches. However, in rare cases, you may feel temporary pain in the treated area.

Are you struggling with mental illness or an addiction? Possibly both at the same time? If so, BoardPrep Recovery Center offers effective dual diagnosis treatment along with our South Tampa TMS therapy program. During dual diagnoses care, we’ll treat both your addiction and mental illness.
In fact, an addiction can lead to the development of a mental illness, while a mental illness can lead to an addiction as a way of coping or self-medicating. Therefore, dual diagnosis treats both simultaneously to ensure both issues are properly fixed before you return to your daily life.
For example, we offer further modalities for our clients, such as:
- Partial hospitalization program
- Young adult rehab program
- Individual and group therapy
- Cognitive behavior therapy
