Neurofeedback helps bring increased success to the treatment of addiction. Combining neurofeedback with other addiction treatments can help a person finally escape the cycle of addiction.Neurofeedback treats the brain disorder of addiction by retraining a person's brain. Teaching the brain how to be calm, focused, and relaxed helps a person think more clearly and rationally. As stressful incidents are a major cause of relapse, neurofeedback training helps build a solid base on which to build recovery. It helps teach the tools one needs to cope over the long term. This workshop will address:
How Does Neurofeedback Help End Addiction?
How Does Neurofeedback Work?
How does a functional EEG and Evoked Potential Analysis help guide treatment in general?
