Neurofeedback, an additional service available at The View, is a state-of-the-art, non-invasive, drugless method for teaching the brain to function in a more healthy, balanced way. This simple and pleasant learning modality can help shift the way the brain distributes and produces its electrical frequency. Four types of impulses are produced by the brain (Alpha, Beta, Delta, and Theta Bands). These impulses are also called "frequency bands" and tell us which parts of our brain are active.
The goal of neurofeedback is to improve the brain's ability to self-regulate, maintain flexibility, and shift smoothly between the states of relaxation and arousal. Since the brain controls attention, emotion, and affect regulation, neurofeedback can ultimately allow the central nervous system to resume normal functioning. Some application options for neurofeedback include:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- TBI/Head Injuries
- Peak Performance and Meditation
How Can Neurofeedback Help with Addiction Treatment?
Stress is a significant contributor to addiction. During times of stress, a client needs to know how to stay calm, reasonable, and rational. Neurofeedback can teach a person's brain how to operate in a calm, rational state. Integrating neurofeedback into an individual's addiction treatment can potentially increase the chance of success and lower the likelihood of relapse. According to some clinical studies, neurofeedback clinicians report that 85% of their clients improve their ability to focus, regulate their behavior, and reduce impulsiveness. Neurofeedback can potentially give clients more control over their addiction.
According to some studies, neurofeedback is a particularly promising treatment modality for adolescents. It is also an attractive treatment option because it is a medication-free method for treating certain addictions and mental disorders.
