Neurofeedback Therapy for Addiction Treatment
Neurotherapy is a type of biofeedback therapy that uses data gained from measuring the brains activity (EEG). This data is then used to inform a treatment plan that can be measured for outcomes.
Addiction is a disease that hijacks the brain and alters the way it functions, and how the brain is structured. But, we can retrain the brain with evidence-based neurotherapy that targets areas of dysregulation. Neurotherapy tools are an effective intervention for mental health issues that drive addiction. By using traditional EEG brain-wave biofeedback and brain stimulation techniques, we can prescribe an individualized treatment plan, track progress and modify treatment.
Heal More Deeply
The brain can heal with the help of neurotherapy tools, and you can find relief from mental health concerns and addiction. Those struggling with a dual diagnosis of addiction in conjunction with anxiety, depression, PTSD, bi-polar disorder or other mental health concern can especially benefit from this therapy.
Before a person receives neurotherapy, he or she will participate in brain mapping to assess the brain. This allows the clinician to identify areas with atypical brainwaves that can trigger dysregulation, and cause lack of control over moods and behaviors. By mapping the brain, we can tailor an individualized neurotherapy treatment plan that addresses where the brain is misfiring and causing vulnerability to addiction.
How does it work?
Brain mapping uses traditional EEG brainwave biofeedback and brain stimulation techniques to speed up neurofeedback.
What can you see?
We can see if the brain is suffering from undetected injury, and we can identify underlying learning problems, stress, emotional and mental concerns.
At Beachway, our trained clinicians deliver a range of targeted neurotherapy treatments based on what a client’s brain mapping results reveal. By addressing unresolved emotional stresses that are impeding normal brainwave activity, we can help people who are vulnerable to addiction prevent behaviors that could lead to substance abuse.
Neurofeedback. LORETA z-scored neurofeedback is the cutting edge of neurofeedback treatment, and it allows us to create a 3-D model of the brain’s electrical activity. From this, we can determine what structures of the brain cannot be touched by traditional neurotherapy. Then, we can use FDA-cleared brain-mapping technology to engage deeper brain structures that are responsible for emotional regulation and controlling cravings. LORETA is a deep-healing process that can transform a person’s ability to learn—and this is critical for establishing healthy, normal control and mood to stay sober.
Bio-Acoustical Stimulation. We know that the body is influenced by external frequencies, and a bio-acoustical utilization device (BAUD) generates sonic waves that match brain frequencies. With BAUD, a person can internalize what it feels like to have regulated brain waves. Music frequencies increase or decrease mood levels, and drum rhythms also have a documented effect on a person’s state of relaxation and self-control.
The benefit: BAUD can provide different stimulation through two speakers, which increases the impact and gives a person more control over learning self-regulation. As BAUD is working, you can see and feel how you are self-regulating based on frequency changes.
The long-term impact: It’s a true learning experience for an individual that reinforces a sense of control. BAUD has been documented as an effective intervention for mental health and pain-related issues, which can be the root of substance abuse and addiction.
