Addiction & Recovery
The specific changes one’s brain endures from using substances over a long period are oftentimes hard to address. There are a multitude of direct and indirect affects. Learning about these issues and taking medication to alleviate symptoms does not always provide an immediate solution.
These symptoms are commonly called Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS). PAWS is comprised of all the active anxieties along with the depressing feelings that come after a long period of drug or alcohol abuse – PAWS is what makes someone say “I don’t feel like myself anymore.”
For chronic relapses, neurofeedback has earned its place across the board. Any facility that treats alcohol and drug addiction by ways of neurofeedback, and has recorded their results, can attest to the fact that it is a reliable relapse prevention tool.
Managing addiction with neurofeedback may offer a new beginning & new way to cope with urges, anxiety, and depression. It relaxes the brain to reduce the impulsivity that is so often a primary aspect of the disease.
