rTMs reduces craving
rTMS influences the so called „reward pathway“, by which the brain is rewarded with a feeling of happiness. The cocine addicted is searching for this emotion, which is not lasting and has a lot of risks and side effects for body, mental status and social life. Through rTMS we have a harmless method, which reduces craving and cocaine use.
For cocaine addicts we offer a comprehensive, discreete and individual therapy regime, with 40 sessions of rTMS over 1 – 2 months at Wolfratshausen with optional Psychotherapy, Acupuncture, Massage, Chinese Traditional Medicine, over-night stay at an outpatient clinic and if necessary treatment at a nearby intensive care unit.
