TMS Therapy uses highly focused magnetic pulses to stimulate the areas of the brain thought to control mood. The theory is that TMS Therapy causes neurons to become active, leading to the release of neurotransmitters to relieve symptoms of depression. Each outpatient treatment involves gentle placement of the magnetic coil against the patient’s head. TMS Therapy utilizes a technology similar to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) that has a long-term record of safety.
The Partial Hospitalization Program is used either as a step down from inpatient care or to help prevent hospitalization for outpatients experiencing more acute symptoms. PHP is structured treatment in a group setting designed to treat adults with symptoms of depression, anxiety, and/or thought disorganization that are affecting their ability to function in multiple areas of their lives. The goal of this program is to stabilize the acute symptoms and help people return to more normal levels of functioning. Patients attend the program five days per week, up to six hours per day. Length of stay varies and is determined by individual needs.
Call (614) 566.4414 to learn more.
The Intensive Outpatient Program may serve as a step down from inpatient care or PHP, or for outpatients needing more intensive care than office visits. Depression, anxiety, and/or thought disorganization are the symptoms addressed in the group treatment format. The focus is on helping patients better understand their diagnosis, manage symptoms, increase functioning, and prevent relapse. Patients attend three or four days per week for up to four hours per day. Length of stay varies and is determined by individual needs.
OhioHealth Marion General Hospital offers two aftercare programs. Our Wednesday, two hour aftercare group supports those in the community with severe, persistent mental illness by helping them manage symptoms and maintain / increase functioning in the community. Lengths of stay are open ended.
Our Thursday two hour aftercare group focuses primarily on relapse prevention. Patients often attend as a step down from our Partial Hospitalization or Intensive Outpatient Programs. Attendance is limited to a maximum of 12 weeks.
These services are for patients who are awaiting placement with an ongoing physician for their behavioral health needs or for consultation. This service only accepts referrals from within OhioHealth.
