Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT)
Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) is a modern medical treatment offered at the Coliseum Center for Behavioral Health. It is intended for certain illnesses that have mental or emotional symptoms. In this treatment, the patient receives brief electrical stimulation to the scalp. The nerve-cell activity releases chemicals in the brain and helps restore normal functioning. Severe depression is the most frequent indication for ECT. While medications and therapy help most people with depression, ECT is indicated for some individuals. Some patients do not respond to medications, while others cannot tolerate the side-effects. Others whose illness has made them seriously suicidal require the relief that ECT can provide. Bipolar disorder and schizophrenia are some other illnesses that can be helped by ECT.
