Relapse prevention in drug addiction treatment is arguably one of the most difficult components of drug addiction recovery. Most drug programs, like the ones offered at The Discovery House drug addiction treatment center, make it a priority to include evidence-based treatment, effective relapse prevention tools and aftercare options like Bill Scott’s BrainPaint®.
BrainPaint® is an evidence-based EEG biofeedback system that has been proven to reduce the amount of people who leave treatment early against medical advice (AMA) by approximately 60%, which, in turn, contributes to more residents completing their drug treatment programs and greatly reducing their chances of relapse.
The neurofeedback software incorporates a comprehensive assessment tool, which systematically calculates scientifically proven procedure suggestions and acts like a stethoscope to listen to what is going on in the user’s brain. For issues like addictions and problems related to one’s discipline for or resistance to change, BrainPaint® is a powerful adjunct to other effective healing methods. In plain english: it helps you to reprogram your brain to make better choices throughout addiction treatment and thereafter.
In conjunction with other aspects and modalities of treatment, BrainPaint® can help someone in recovery manage or eliminate cravings.
“Addiction is a disease of the brain and our clients have found that neurofeedback helps them resist cravings for drugs or alcohol,” notes David Dequa, program director at The Discovery House, a Southern California residential addiction treatment center.
UCLA also did a follow up to the original study that was published in the American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse. It showed a 75% increase in long-term sobriety for residents that used neurofeedback therapy in conjunction with other programs support tools, like the well known 12-Step program.
BrainPaint® has been a part of The Discovery House treatment options for over three years and has contributed to helping thousands of residents in both inpatient drug rehab and outpatient drug rehab to reach lasting long-term recovery.
