COCAINE ADDICTION TREATMENT
Any use of cocaine is considered abuse because it is an illegal substance.
Cocaine is a central nervous system stimulant that affects the brain by stimulating high levels of dopamine, a brain chemical associated with pleasure and reward. Over time, Cocaine negatively effects every part of the body with potential for severe long-term effects. It can cause changes to genetics in brain cells, nerve cells and proteins, among other permanent effects.
RTMS addiction treatment offers a medication-free approach to treating the cravings experienced in cocaine addiction. It’s more cost effective than many conventional addiction treatment options and can be done over short course of 10-12 sessions.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation works directly on the associated areas of the brain and has shown excellent results in this and a variety of treatment areas.
1) 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. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30612944
2) Recent animal studies have demonstrated that compulsive cocaine seeking strongly reduces pre-limbic frontal cortex activity, while stimulation of this brain area significantly inhibits compulsive cocaine seeking, providing a strong rationale for applying brain stimulation to reduce cocaine consumption (Terraneo et al, 2015).
3) In a case series daily sessions of rTMS produced a significant reduction in craving for cocaine over time (Politi et al., 2008).
