Neurofeedback for Drug and Alcohol Treatment
What is Neurofeedback
To educate the brain to be more adaptive, effective and operative Neurofeedback or EEG Biofeedback employs our premature biological mechanisms, self-regulation and homeostasis. Neurotherapy can help develop a number of things including addiction recovery. Inspire Malibu tackles the fundamental issues of addiction called comorbidities (also known as dual diagnosis) and we don’t just emphasize addiction recovery. The practice of getting sober can be very taxing and the portions of the brain that warrant a logical answer are circumvented under these tense situations. Resolutions are then constructed upon apprehension. This is predominantly evident in the initial periods of recovery, impairing an addicts capability to absorb and employ the keys learned in rehab. Neurofeedback helps to develop the reactive brain into one that is interactive.
As well as addiction recovery, Inspire Malibu goes a step further and tackles the core issues of dependence. These fundamental concerns known as comorbidities or Dual Diagnosis are handled through our neurofeedback program. It’s imperative to take notice of the motivating problems, as they can create barriers to recovery. For Example, our program at Inspire Malibu utilizes one on one therapy as well as group therapy and if someone is suffering from panic attacks or anxiety it will be difficult for them to participate thus hindering their recovery. Aiding the healing process of these underlying issues releases the freshly sober to be more present and receptive for the drug and alcohol rehab program. This relates not only to drug and alcohol addiction, it applies to a mired of dependencies.

Does Neurofeedback Work?
Many studies have been conducted and scientists theorize that the brain desires to balance knowledge more than genes since development and size limit the design of the brain. If we were to calculate the total quantity of neurons produced throughout brain maturity both before and after birth we would discover twice as many neurons are generated that eventually inhabit the developed brain. Basically when the brain is maturing, neurons are vying to live and when not used they are gone.
