Electro Convulsive Therapy (ECT)

Electroconvulsive Therapy, commonly referred to as ECT, is one of the most effective procedures used to treat depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia when unresponsive or resistant to medication. The benefits include the high success rate, the lack of drug-to-drug interactions, none of the concerning side effects present in several medications plus it is a procedure covered by most insurance plans.

Treatments can be done while the patient is in the hospital or as an outpatient procedure. Our experienced psychiatrists, anesthesiologist and ECT RN staff provide a safe and comfortable environment for the procedure.

If you have a patient that may benefit from ECT services, call our Intake Department at Houston Behavioral Healthcare Hospital to learn more about the procedure or to schedule services.
