ADDICTION PROGRAM SUPPORTED BY NEUROFEEDBACK TO IMPROVE COGNITIVE FUNCTION & MOOD REGULATION
Neurofeedback is an important part of our addiction program. Using real-time EEG displays to illustrate brain activity, our neurofeedback system teaches self-regulation. Positive, healthy brain activity is promoted, and unhealthy brain frequencies are decreased. This is a painless and non-invasive process that can improve cognitive function and regulate mood.
Neurofeedback has been shown to be effective not only in the treatment of substance abuse disorders, but also other mental health disorders, such as depression and anxiety.
Neurofeedback Improves Addiction Program Compliance
A 2005 UCLA study showed that adding neurofeedback therapy to an addiction program significantly decreases the number of people who leave treatment Against Medical Advice (AMA). The 12-month follow-up to this study found that 77% of the clients who received neurofeedback were abstinent, compared to 44% for the control group.
