About GIA: Who We Are

The team of experts at GIA Miami comprises a diverse, international group of healthcare professionals who are united in a single belief: that modern neuroscience and psychological practice must inform the treatment of substance abuse and mental health problems. We have made sure that this mission is at the heart of every diagnosis, every treatment plan, and every clinical decision we make.

It is a sad fact that very few of the more than 40 million Americans struggling with addiction will get the help they need. Perhaps they will not take those critical first steps because they are uninsured, underinsured, or feel that they don’t have the financial resources to get help. Maybe they have family members or co-workers who rely on them, and they don’t feel that they can take the time. At GIA’s outpatient mental wellness and addiction therapy program, we have solutions for these perceived problems. But more than anything, we have found that most just don’t know where to start. The researchers and clinical staff at GIA have spent their careers helping people with substance abuse problems and mental health issues rebuild their lives. The first step is to reach out.

About GIA: What We Offer

Dr. Bonci and his team are pioneers in the use of a procedure called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to treat addiction. TMS involves the non-invasive use of electromagnetic pulses to stimulate certain parts of the brain. And although it had been successfully used to treat mood disorders and anxiety disorders, little work had been done on TMS’s potential as a way of treating addiction. Dr. Bonci’s work has highlighted the extent to which TMS and other innovative approaches can help people suffering from substance abuse disorders, and it has been met with acclaim.

But TMS is only one of the treatment modalities in which the experts at GIA specialize.

Among the other treatment modalities and clinical approaches we utilize at GIA are:

Medical detoxification

Biofeedback services

A cutting-edge psychological assessment and diagnostic testing division

A range of medical services that includes sleep modulation and pain management

An education program aimed at helping individuals learn about nutrition, mental health, and addiction.

In addition, we have a well-developed telehealth program, which allows us to serve a broader range of patients of all socioeconomic backgrounds, in line with our stated mission. But our signature approach involves the extent to which we are able to individualize each therapeutic approach to suit the needs of each of our patients. At GIA, we aim to give you the tools you need for lasting mental and physical health. And by designing custom mental wellness and addiction therapy program strategies for each patient who walks through our doors, we can do just that.
