Radio Show Features Neurofeedback: Recovery’s “Secret Weapon”
How little-known technology makes a big difference for addicts seeking sobriety
What neurofeedback is and how it works is the topic of this Thursday’s episode of Break the Chains, a groundbreaking new internet radio show broadcast on TalkZone.com.
“When addicts abuse substances, fundamental changes occur in the architecture of the brain,” noted show host Gwen Carden. “It simply doesn’t look – or behave - the way it once did. Many of the once-functional links and connections that communicated signals efficiently and appropriately are damaged or even destroyed. As a result, the addict experiences cravings, anxiety, sleep problems, judgment lapses, inappropriate emotions, depression and loss of motivation.”
She added that studies show that when neurofeedback (biofeedback for the brain) is added to conventional recovery modalities such as therapy and AA/NA, addicts tend to get better faster, have fewer cravings and see improvements in all aspects of their lives – all without medication.
The show will feature two well-known neurofeedback experts, Dr. Ray McGarty of McGarty and Associates in Dover, New Hampshire and Michael Cohen of The Center for Brain Training in Jupiter, Florida. They will explain in depth what neurofeedback is and why it has such a powerful impact on people in recovery.
Break the Chains airs live at 10 a.m. Eastern Time every Thursday. Archived shows can be accessed any time.
