Quest 2 Recovery offers addiction treatment for drug and alcohol addiction by using a comprehensive detox program followed by different therapies to treat other disorders.  We have neuropathy treatment used to treat addiction, psychological disorders, anxiety, PTSD, and movement disorders. Neurofeedback has been successful in preventing relapse in drug and alcohol addiction. It is a form of biofeedback that is called EEG biofeedback a non-invasive technique that uses technology to collect information from the brain. They use electronic monitoring equipment, sensors, and software that analyzes the client’s brain waves.

The doctor understands the brain waves and understands how to help the client control and improve them. The test finds electrical abnormalities in the brain. They can shift abnormal brain wave patterns to become normal. They can train the person to control their thought thus creating slower brain waves or activity. Slowing theta waves in the front lobe of the brain help people improve their concentration. It often requires more than one session and is often administered after detox to help the client avoid relapses.

The Basis of Neurotherapy Treatment

Neurotherapy treatment is based on the theory that different disorders are caused by specific patterns of brain activity. They diagnose disorders from patterns of brain activity. Testing for this treatment at the Quest 2 Recovery includes psychological testing, medical test, cooperation from family and friends, and a brainwave test.  Individual treatment is based on the diagnosis and assessment made. This helps clients control brain wave patterns based on EEG techniques.

Methods used will vary depending on the client and their specific condition. Some will listen to music with subliminal messages hooked up to monitors and sensors. The client will learn to concentrate on certain thoughts and monitor breathing. They may learn specific breathing techniques to help with controlling thoughts. It is used here in addition to conventional treatments for substance abuse and other disorders.

This therapy is very effective in helping individuals learn stress management techniques. The therapy includes learning muscle relaxation, breathing techniques, and guided imagery. It helps with concentration and helps those in treatment learn other techniques more easily. It is most effective when used as a complementary or additional treatment for substance abuse or psychiatric disorders.

Neurofeedback Treatments

In the session, a therapist will attach electrodes to the client’s scalp and it is connected to a software program on a computer that can read brain waves. They often stimulate their brain waves by interacting with a video game. The performance is measured by the ability of the client to control his brain waves. The will sense their way through the game learning how to control thoughts and learn new techniques. Some doctors believe that psychological disorders need physiological treatment and psychiatric treatment together. This therapy trains the brain in a way talk therapy alone cannot.

A UCLA study showed that Neurotherapy improved those with drug and alcohol addiction improving their tendency to relapses and start using again. Many people think that the brain waves cause addiction and this therapy helps improve the chance of treatment success. The study showed in the early stages of treatment the brain in unstable and that 40-60 percent of clients relapse. Clients that combine this with traditional treatments improved their rates at the one-year mark.

Often it is once a week for about 20 sessions. It is used for autism, behavior disorders, brain injuries, depression, anxiety, PTSD, addiction and sleep disorders. It is considered a way of managing thought waves in the brain, not a cure. Licensed neurofeedback professionals are trained to use the equipment and administer therapy. It is considered a method of biofeedback.
