Electroconvulsive Therapy Treatment (ECT) Treatment

PAM Voyages of Sugar Land offers ECT treatment on an inpatient and outpatient basis provided by skilled physicians. When therapy and/or medications have not helped to improve mental health conditions, ECT is a safe, effective option for a doctor to discuss with their patient.

Electroconvulsive therapy treatment (ECT) is a procedure performed by a physician which stimulates the brain and causes changes in brain chemistry which help to quickly reverse symptoms of certain mental health conditions.

ECT is most appropriate to consider for patients experiencing

  • Medication-resistant depression
  • Psychosis
  • Catatonia
  • Multiple hospital visits for the same mental disorder
  • Multiple suicide attempts

The procedures are pain-free and occur as part of a series, occurring twice a week and lasting between six and 12 sessions. Follow-up and medications may continue as determined between the patient and doctor. ECT has a 70% efficacy rate. Over 100,000 patients receive ECT in the United States, and 1 million people receive ECT worldwide annually.

Outpatient Treatment

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) provide an excellent option for patients transitioning from one care level to another while allowing them to build upon their successes.
