Pardell MD in colloboration with Robert Moran MD of The Family Center for Recovery presented their results at the U.S. Psychiatric and Mental Health Congress in San Antonio, Texas in October, 2016.  They found that 5 daily treatments of rTMS  using high frequency 10 Hz rTMS over left DLPFC significantly reduced craving in substance dependent individuals. On Secondary measure, a significant minority of patients experienced response and remission of depressive symptoms. These results highlight the potential of non-invasive neuromodulation as a therapeutic tool for addiction and co-existing depression.

Riverview Psychiatric Medicine, PC is pleased to announce their collaboration with Alexandra Linardakis, RN, BCN. Alexandra is board certified in neurofeedback and does assessments that allow the use of normative neuro-cogntive and behavioral assessments as well as qEEG brain-maps. These assessments allow for a different perspective of a person’s symptoms or difficulty reaching their goals. Treatment plans based on these new assessments are designed specific to the individual and may include a series of neurotherapy and braintraining sessions. This model may also be an effective way to enhance positive effects after a series of TMS treatments. Along with a patient’s history, symptoms, and genetic testing, the EEG is being used by psychiatrists to assist in choosing medications and other relevant treatment. We are pleased to announce our Open House on October 15th, 2016 @ 10 am for you to be able to learn more about what is new at Riverview Psychiatric Medicine.
