Why Landmark Recovery of Louisville is implementing Neurofeedback with their patients?
Neurofeedback is a wonderful adjunct to the other forms of therapy, including individual and group therapy, which will be utilized while patients come into our care.
- At the heart of neurofeedback is a retraining of dysfunctional brain patterns which contribute to the person’s addiction.
Neurofeedback assist in training the individual’s brain to operate more calmly and rationally when situations become stressful.
- The process of early recovery, although a healthy choice, is often filled with challenging situations whereby new coping skills will be needed.
- Neurofeedback has been reported to allow clients improved ability to focus, regulate their behavior and reduce impulsivity
A study preformed at UCLA published in 2005 provided the following results with treating this population:
- Increased abstinence rates among those participating in neurofeedback by over 30%
- Decrease among those leaving treatment against medical advice (AMA) by 60%
- Significant improvements on 5 of the 10 MMPI-2 scales, the most frequently used personality tests in mental health.
