Associated Behavioral Health Care offers new, non-invasive depression treatment at its Kent facility

For the Reporter

Associated Behavioral Health Care, a treatment provider of chemical dependency and mental health services throughout the Puget Sound region, offers a new treatment option at its Kent facility.

The provider offers transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) — making it one of the first and only providers of TMS in Southeast King County, where mental health services are in demand.

Associated Behavioral Health Care is offering same-day TMS assessments at all four of its facilities located in King County, including Kent, at 841 Central Ave. N, C215.

What began as a drug and alcohol education and service facility in 1995, Associated Behavioral Health Care has since evolved into a full-service behavioral health provider. The most recent addition to its roster of mental health services is NeuroStar Advanced Therapy TMS, which uses magnetic pulses to awaken areas of the brain that are underactive in depression.

NeuroStar Advanced Therapy offers doctors real-time feedback and delivers enhanced care with its precise and accurate targeting, providing reliable and consistent treatment. Associated Behavioral Health Care’s Bellevue and Kent locations both currently have growing waiting lists of patients interested in the proven, non-drug treatment option.

The King County Department of Community and Human Services reports one in five area adults has received a diagnosis of depression in their lives. To fill the void for non-invasive depression treatments in the area, Associated Behavioral Health Care plans to offer TMS therapy at all four of its facilities, located in Kent, Bellevue, North Seattle and West Seattle, before the close of 2018, if not sooner.
