TMS

Treating Depression Without Medication
Trinitas/St. Joseph's Behavioral Health Network introduces new approach

Depression is a widespread and often debilitating anomaly. It goes beyond temporary sadness and can last indefinitely, robbing one of quality of life if not rendering people of all ages completely dysfunctional. In fact, depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. People with depression often also suffer from anxiety disorders, which are different, but share similar symptoms like insomnia, the inability to concentrate, nervousness, and irritability.

If you’re one of the 15 million Americans with depression who either can’t tolerate, or don’t respond to medication, TMS therapy, a non-invasive treatment that uses magnetic fields to stimulate the brain, may be the antidote to your suffering.

FDA-cleared BrainsWay Deep TMS is a non-invasive treatment that stimulates the brain using magnetic fields similar to what is used for an MRI. The treatment has no systemic side effects and requires no hospitalization or anesthesia. To date, the therapy has been proven in more than 60 clinical trials worldwide.

The Trinitas-St. Joseph's Behavioral Health Network is partnering with HPR Treatment Centers (a division of TMS Centers of America) to offer TMS at two treatment facilities in Essex County by June, 2018, followed by another six sites throughout Northern NJ over the next year.

Despite being a newer treatment for depression, TMS is a proven option with impressive efficacy rates and research results.

"TMS is indicated for the treatment of adults with major depression who have not responded to at least one antidepressant," said Dr. Carlos Rueda, Chairman of Psychiatry for the Trinitas-St. Joseph's Behavioral Health Network. "We are excited to bring this therapy option to the residents of New Jersey, offering new hope for a complex condition."

"This partnership allows us to work with two of the leading medical institutions in the state to provide a comprehensive continuum of care to treat those suffering from depression," said Ben Klein, founder and CEO of HPR Treatment Centers. "We have been offering TMS to patients across the country and know firsthand the significant impact the treatment has on patients. We have seen people with depression who have lost hope regain it back when they achieve remission through TMS."

Half of the 15 million Americans with depression cannot tolerate or do not respond to antidepressant medication. And unlike medication, TMS has no systemic side effects and requires no hospitalization or anesthesia.

"Depression is believed to be caused by electrical dysfunction of one region of the brain, known as the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex,” adds Dr. Rueda. “Through a highly focused and targeted magnetic stimulation, we’re able to boost the function of the brain in this region, allowing for a remission of the depression."

Because TMS is a non-drug, non-invasive treatment, patients are awake during the procedure and can get back to daily activities, including driving, immediately following the session.

"We are excited to work with HPR Treatment Centers to help Trinitas and St. Joseph's deliver optimal mental health solutions to their patients and partner with them in this initiative that will address a growing challenge in treating mental health patients," said Joe Perekupka, vice president at BrainsWay. "We are fortunate to partner with HPR Treatment Centers, as they have demonstrated true leadership in increasing access to Deep TMS for patients across the country. By providing the tools necessary to help these renowned facilities treat patients who are suffering from mental disorders, we are enabling better outcomes for patients."

Trinitas - St. Joseph's Behavioral Health Network

In response to the rapidly growing need for more coordinated mental health care services in New Jersey, Trinitas Regional Medical Center and St. Joseph's University Medical Center have launched the largest and most comprehensive Integrated Behavioral Health Network in Northern New Jersey. The new partnership will enhance access and continuity of care by ensuring patients receive services in the most appropriate setting for their complex behavioral health needs.

"One of the greatest challenges facing patients with mental health and substance health needs is getting into the right program -- that can offer them the greatest benefit," explains Dr. Carlos Rueda, Regional Chairman of Psychiatry/Behavioral Health of the new Trinitas-St. Joseph's Behavioral Health Network. "Both Trinitas and St. Joseph's offer a comprehensive array of behavioral health treatment centers, programs and services at dozens of outpatient and satellite facilities throughout the region. Now together, our newly combined network dramatically expands those access points and the opportunities for enhanced outcomes."

According to a report released in October 2016 by the New Jersey Hospital Association, patients with mental health and substance use disorders account for nearly half of the growth in hospital emergency room cases in New Jersey and are far outpacing the overall growth in emergency department use. The report goes on to note that treating individuals suffering from a mental health crisis in the emergency department can place stress on the patient and is not the best setting to handle their complex needs. At the same time, it places increased strain within the emergency department, adding to overcrowding, long waits and increased healthcare costs.

The Trinitas-St. Joseph's network includes primary medical care in the behavioral health continuum to engage patients at the onset of mental health and substance use issues, allowing for earlier diagnosis and referral in to the best possible treatment options.

An alarming report from the Centers for Disease Control contends that life expectancy for psychiatric patients is 25 years less than it is for non-psychiatric patients. "Mental health care has always been delivered in silos, with little regard to primary care," explained James McCreath, Vice President of Behavioral Health at Trinitas and Executive Director of the Network. "This dilemma is now being addressed by our two full-service hospitals, each with a broad range of medical specialties and behavioral health expertise." The lack of primary care among the mental health population has been recognized by the federal government, which recently awarded Trinitas a four-year, $1.6 million grant to operate a primary care clinic in their mental health center. "St. Joe's has also shown leadership in this arena, as evidenced by their new relationship with a major area primary care physicians’ practice," he added.

"By joining our two behavioral health programs, we now offer expanded access and treatment for patients that will move care away from emergency departments and into more appropriate settings," says Gary Horan, President and CEO, Trinitas Regional Medical Center. "The size and scope of the new behavioral health network will bring multiple benefits, including improved care coordination to ensure patients and their families are connected to the right programs for their unique needs."

"As two of the leaders in the State for behavioral health care, Trinitas and St. Joseph's are exceptionally positioned to respond to the growing mental health needs of New Jersey residents," says Kevin Slavin, President and CEO, St. Joseph's University Medical Center. "The strength of our new network will not only increase access to care in appropriate settings across three counties, it will result in better outcomes for patients as they move away from the current short-term acute care focus with independent services and programs, to a more patient-centered connected network designed to improve long-term health status."
