It serves patients through the use of TMS, which is indicated for the treatment of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and/or major depressive disorder, according to the company.

TMS is FDA-approved, non-invasive, and causes no adverse or lasting side effects, the press release states. It does not require a significant recovery period and has a 20-minute treatment period for its session.

“Many people who have not received adequate results with antidepressants or other forms of treatment have found great relief with TMS therapy,” the company says.

For patients with treatment-resistant depression or major depressive disorder with suicidal thoughts or actions, Relief also offers Spravato, a prescription nasal spray form of ketamine and the first psychedelic drug to be FDA-approved for the treatment of mental illness, the society says.

For those who need more emotional support to address other mental health issues such as trauma or anxiety and develop healthy coping skills, Relief has licensed therapists available for individual and family counselling, says the society.

Relief also provides medication management and can usually see patients within a week of the initial call, the company says.

On its website, the company says its psychiatric drug program has a “team of psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, and associate physicians.”

Relief accepts most major commercial insurance plans, including Medicare.
