This pilot study aims to 1) determine the feasibility and effect size for 20 sessions of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) versus sham in adults with a DSM 5 methamphetamine  use disorder (MUD) or a cocaine use disorder (CUD; and 2) evaluate the safety of rTMS compared to sham in participants with CUD/MUD at the end of treatment and at a 12-week follow-up.
