Treatment specialists have started using TMS in the treatment for the dangerous symptoms that accompany addiction, particularly treating people who may be suffering from depression as a symptom of withdrawal. TMS or TMS will help stimulate the brain and return control over their mood.

The use of TMS has also shown positive signs in fighting cravings, through the stimulation of neural networks. In a double-blind study, 11 out of 16 people who received TMS therapy for addiction were free of their addiction symptoms after one week of treatments. 

Though these studies are very promising, more testing is required. Like anything, it should only be included in a plan that involves other therapies, such as CBT.
