How Does Alpha Stim Offer Help for Addiction Disorders?Alpha-Stim technology has been well-researched and proven to be effective in the treatment of a variety of conditions:

  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Addictive Disorders

Many people seeking help for addictive disorders also suffer from Insomnia, Anxiety, and Depression. During the initial phases of withdrawal from substance abuse, many people experience Post-Acute Withdrawal Symptoms (PAWS). Insomnia, anxiety, depression, physical discomfort, and psychological cravings are among the most highly-reported PAWS symptoms. Alpha-stim can help.


“Following [alpha stim], most people feel better, less distressed, and more focused on mental tasks. They generally sleep better and report improved concentration, increased learning abilities, enhanced recall, and a heightened state of well-being” (source). “Cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) has been shown in 15 studies to quickly, safely and effectively reduce the physical withdrawal, psychological cravings and co-morbid anxiety, insomnia and depression in people suffering from addictive disorders” (source).


This technique involves placing clips on the ears that deliver small electric currents to stimulate the brain.  This is a painless experience that induces a relaxed state.  The benefits of Alpha Stim have been shown to be effective not only in the immediate setting, but also in  long-term reduction of symptoms.


Alpha stim can help with addiction treatment goals by promoting greater focus and concentration. This means clients are better able to retain and process information. They are simply better able to be present for their treatment. It is highly recommended clients receive regular Alpha Stim sessions during their stay.
