Neurofeedback and Addictions

BrainPaint® protocols during treatment resulted in 77% sobriety – regardless of drug of choice – one year after treatment.

  • One of the largest randomized controlled studies in the field of neurofeedback, conducted through UCLA, resulted in neurofeedback subjects:
    • Having 77% sobriety rate with neurofeedback as compared to 44% for control subjects;
    • Staying in treatment 1½ times longer
    • Coming out of 7 of 10 clinical ranges on the MMPI (indicating recovery from co-occurring mental health disorders).
  • Protocols teach the brain to self-regulate – no energy comes into the brain. The process is safe and painless.
  • Neurofeedback simply allows the brain to release patterns associated with addiction. The brain strengthens pathways that empower addicts to break the chains of bondage to addictions.
  • fMRI research shows the safe/secure brain state (default mode network) comes back online with use of neurofeedback. This relates to the neural-network associated with addictions.
  • Dr. Buck has professional experience working with all types of addictions since 1991. She helps normalize the recovery process, empowering clients with their own internal healing abilities while engaging in local recovery support.

Home Neurofeedback for Addictions

  • A beautiful advantage of home neurofeedback is the convenience and frequency of sessions that support rapid recovery. The more sessions a person does, the lower the cost.
  • The monthly fee includes equipment, evidence-based protocol selection and oversight by Dr. Buck, unlimited sessions, and technical support.
  • Bill Scott, developer of BrainPaint®, was one of the original researchers for trauma and addictions protocols. BrainPaint® replicates the exact way the protocols are intended to be processed.
  • Many treatment centers have neurofeedback, but don’t provide enough sessions to stabilize results. It is important to complete 45-60 sessions for lasting results.
  • Some treatment and sober living centers will allow you to have a home system if neurofeedback is not a part of their program. Add family members for $100 per month each when you are at home.
  • Remember that an addict alone is in bad company! Best results occur when trainees are engaged in connection, purpose, and belonging in their local community.
