Why should I seek treatment?
Addiction is an epidemic. Twenty million Americans suffer from this condition. Abuse of alcohol, heroin, and other dangerous substances is a growing issue.
Eating disorders impact even more people. Thirty million people in the United States suffer from anorexia or bulimia.
These conditions are serious. Drug abuse correlates directly to breathing problems, brain damage, tooth loss, malnutrition, and skin conditions.
Disorders and addiction are extremely detrimental to mental health as well. People suffering from bulimia and anorexia experience heightened levels of depression. Still, only one in five deaths due to an eating disorder is from suicide.
Abuse leads to a vicious and expensive cycle. Addicts make adverse life-altering decisions leading to increased levels of joblessness and homelessness. Usage is typically associated with criminal activity as well.
The health problems and social issues related to abuse and eating disorders make seeking treatment life-saving. Our experts help to get you on the road to recovery.
How can neurofeedback therapy help me?
Cognitive retraining is a thriving practice employed for a variety of incurable issues. Therapists and even social workers use methods related to this philosophy to treat everything from attention deficit disorder to tinnitus, addiction, and eating disorders.
Retraining focuses on negative thoughts and behaviors. Therapists replace negative thinking and reactions to certain stimuli with more beneficial thoughts and activities. This form of training even works for physical ailments such as Tinnitus where patients report a significant improvement in handling the symptoms of their condition.
Experts may deploy neurofeedback therapy. This involves the placement of electrodes on the temple with small electric shocks when exposing patients to stimuli that cause specific thoughts and cravings. A review of studies in 2009 found that this form of treatment significantly aids in impulse control.
