What is Addiction?
Addiction is a complex medical condition that involves harmful and compulsive dependence on a specific substance, activity, or behavior.
People struggling with addiction experience an inability to control their impulses and behaviors, despite the negative consequences that may arise.
Dependency habits can encompass a wide range of substances, such as drugs and alcohol, as well as activities like gambling, excessive technology use, consumption of pornography, indiscriminate sexual behavior, and more.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and Its Role in Treating Dependency Habits
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is an innovative technique that has gained recognition in the field of mental health and neuroscience.
Its application involves the use of magnetic fields to modify electrical activity in specific regions of the brain. In the treatment of addictions, TMS has shown promise as a complementary approach to traditional interventions.
TMS directly influences neuronal connections, affecting communication between various brain areas. In the case of addiction, research has explored how TMS can modulate activity in brain regions related to reward, impulse control, and decision-making. These aspects are closely linked to addictive patterns and compulsive behaviors.
TMS is non-invasive and has low risk, offering a promising perspective to complement traditional treatment approaches, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and pharmacotherapy. Therefore, it is used as part of a comprehensive and personalized approach that includes psychological therapies, social support, and appropriate medical monitoring.
