Dangerous use or overuse of alcohol can arise for many reasons and unfortunately the consequences can be serious; physically and psychologically.
Drinking large amounts daily has a range of long-term health consequences, including liver damage, high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease. Alcohol can also contribute to mental health problems, as it is a depressant which interferes with the brain’s neurotransmitters.
rTMS offers a medication-free approach to treating alcohol cravings and dependence and can be used to break the vicious cycle of craving, bingeing/using, and withdrawal. A course of treatment for alcohol dependence can be 10-15 sessions or more. For recently detoxified alcohol dependent patients, its best done after 15 days of abstinence.
Clinical studies are on-going into rTMS for various types of addiction. A recent clinical analysis indicates rTMS can reduce craving and consumption levels in drug and eating addiction.
-There is increasing scientific evidence that rTMS can reduce alcohol craving in recently detoxified patients and assisting them to remain abstinent (Boggio et al, 2008, Mishra et al, 2010, Mishra et al, 2015, and Herremans et al, 2015).
