Patient Beats Cocaine Addiction with rTMS Treatment

All types of cocaine are extremely addictive and the addiction can take hold very quickly indeed with dramatic consequences for the addict in their lives.

Use of cocaine is very dangerous with a series of severe health risks. What’s more, the dependence can have a big impact on users’ ability to carry out their duties at work, hefty financial consequences and great difficulties in personal relationships.

Research has shown that rTMS – Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation could offer an alternative treatment option for cocaine addiction. This treatment is available at Smart TMS in London, who recently treated a patient whose addiction to crack cocaine had spiralled out of control.

Extracts from his testimonial illustrate the story:

The Depths of Addiction

“I was in the pit of despair and quickly dragging my family into the abyss. The money was a monumental worry that my Mum was trying to keep on to pof as well as the fact that I was leading to nowhere except and early grave. She would cry herself to sleep, imagining herself at my funeral.”

rTMS Treatment Experience

Results Kicked in at Day 5

“After day 5 of the treatment I suddenly found that I had no cravings. I shocked myself when I thought about crack but at the same time realised that I wasn’t bothered about it. I hadn’t felt that for years. I filled in a form at the clinic and under the cocaine craving score I circled the number one. In actual fact, on reflection, I think I should have marked zero. As I still thought about it, I felt I should mark one but in reality thinking and craving are two separate things. The craving was zero! And this has continued to be the case throughout the rest of the treatment.”

The ‘Cure’ and a New Life

“I cannot express how wonderful this feels. No cravings, no depression, nothing but positivity and a renewed zest for life.”

“I am so excited to go home and see my children, to take my little girl out for a birthday surprise, to cuddle and to treasure my son and my daughter. I can’t wait to set up my own business. I can’t stop planning my future for myself and my babies. I truly believe that the rTMS treatment has plucked me from the jaws of hell. I am standing on the precipice and I know it is up to me to keep this feeling now, forever. I want to look forwards to a new life. I want life.”
