Meet Our Team Of Drug Addiction Psychiatrists

Overview

Neurofeedback, as a supplement to pharmacotherapy, has been found to be an effective treatment for drug addiction. After neurofeedback treatment, psychological improvements in people with drug addiction have been reported. Neurofeedback has also shown to be effective in helping people with addiction maintain abstinence. However, if after neurofeedback sessions the person with addiction goes back to the same environmental challenges and habits, the person may have a relapse. This is why neurofeedback cannot be a standalone treatment option, and has to be supplemented by psychotherapy, support groups, and medications.

During the procedure, a neurofeedback specialist will create a brain map of areas in the addicted individual’s brain that show abnormal electrical activity. The specialist will then create a training program using neurofeedback that will help correct underactivity, overactivity, and inactivity of different areas of the brain. In this way, the physiological symptoms of addiction, and as a result, the mental symptoms of addiction show improvement.
