What can we do to get over an addiction?
With our therapeutic experience in the field of addiction we have been improving our method of working with addiction focusing our attention on neurofeedback and EMDR techniques in order to fight drug abuse with the aim of getting the best results by offering an individualized treatment. Our approach to addiction is integral and multi-dipliscinary and we try to guide our patients to an abstinence of substances without the use of other medication.
Drug addiction is an illness which consists of a syndrome with characteristic signs and symptoms; moreover, it has serious physical, psychological and social consequences for the individual. Addiction is characterized by a pattern of behaviors in which the individual prioritizes the consumption of drugs: alcohol, cocaine, cannabis, psychotrophic drugs etc and puts them ahead of more important values causing general discomfort.

Benefits of treatment with neurofeedback and EMDR for addiction
In the case of people addicted to substances, stopping taking drugs is just the first step towards recovery. The majority of substances cause imbalances in cerebral activity and cerebral patterns.
The effectiveness of neurofeedback in treating addictions has been extensively investigated in the past 15 years and a growing body of evidence proves that it is an effective treatment which helps to regain balance in brain activity and to improve behavior and attention. People who are addicted show peculiar patterns of activity and the use of neurofeedback and EMDR change those patterns.
Some of the benefits are:
-Increased capability to make decisions
-Strengthening and facilitating the capacity to change
– Positive changes related to mood and personality
– Better emotional stability
– Physical and mental calm
– Better brain functioning
-Reduction of compulsive desires
Ask for a consultation or for an appointment if you want to say no to your addiction and remember that “the only addiction which is worth having is love” (José Mujica).
