We offer a wide range of treatment options for a more effective recovery and lasting sobriety.
More often than not, patients suffering from alcohol or drug addiction are also afflicted with co-occurring mental disorders. With this fact at the forefront of our minds, we at Merito apply a dual-diagnosis approach, making sure to address each patient’s unique case from various points of view. Apart from making use of psychotherapy to heal a person’s emotional and psychological well-being, we back it up with neurofeedback therapy as a means to improve brain wellness. Dating to the 1960’s, this process has been adapted up to the present time due to its positive effect in improving the recovery progress of drug and alcohol rehab patients.
The Principle Behind Neurofeedback
Also called EEG (Electroencephalogram) Biofeedback, neurofeedback serves as an addiction treatment option most suitable for patients suffering from co-occurring anxiety disorders. Its goal is to help patients restore normal brain functions and thus become more open and receptive to psychotherapy.
- Furthermore, it aids in the re-training of the central nervous system (CNS). In this way, the treatment and rehabilitation (both on the physical and mental aspects) are better-received, thus making progress and sobriety more attainable.
What to Expect During a Neurofeedback Session
Neurofeedback is not at all an unpleasant experience. A patient’s brainwave pattern will simply be subject to careful monitoring. When a tremor or irregularity is detected, the patient is informed to try and somehow ‘reset’ his brain. Here’s a more detailed description of the session.
- A selection of music will be heard, the effects of which on the patient’s brainwave pattern will be observed. It is during the occasional irregularities in said pattern when he will be signaled and prompted to retrain his brain. This non-invasive approach could last around 30 minutes.
Patients claim to have had deeper slumber after a neurofeedback session. They also feel less stress and more clarity. Merito finds this process truly indispensable in helping patients overcome withdrawal effects, avoid relapses, or get back on track after an inevitable relapse.
