TMS is a noninvasive, nonmedication option that uses electromagnetism to effectively treat depression in patients who have failed prior antidepressant treatments.

At Active Recovery TMS, our goal is to provide a safe and effective alternative treatment for depression. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is an especially important treatment option for those who have not had success with standard depression treatments like medication and/or therapy.

In 2016, after moving from New York City to Portland, Dr. Horey was treating a patient in his private practice who had tried multiple different treatments for depression without improvement. He began to look for a TMS clinic to refer to in the Portland area but found that there were no TMS clinics available for his patient. Thus began the journey to open Active Recovery TMS to provide this ground-breaking treatment to patients in his community. With the help of his co-founder Michael, who manages the business arm of the clinic, Active Recovery TMS was born. Active Recovery TMS started treating patients in January of 2017.

Our co-founder, Dr. Horey, became familiar with TMS while training and working at Columbia University in New York City where many of the early and important studies on TMS were conducted. Dr. Horey has since completed more extensive training in TMS and keeps himself up-to-date with the latest research on brain stimulation techniques, including TMS.

TREATMENT OF MAJOR DEPRESSIVE DISORDER WITH TMS

An FDA approved treatment for those in which antidepressants have not worked. TMS has been FDA approved for the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder in patients whose symptoms have not improved after one or more trials of antidepressants.

Other studies have suggested benefit from TMS for a wide range of conditions such as OCD, anxiety, autism, tinnitus, Parkinson’s disease, PTSD and addictive disorders. However, TMS has not been FDA approved for any condition except Major Depressive Disorder after adequate antidepressant medication trials.
