Addiction is a disease, which consists of a syndrome made up of a set of characteristic signs and symptoms. Its origin is multifactorial, among which we should mention biological, genetic, psychological and social factors. Drug addiction or drug dependence is a disease with serious physical, psychological and social consequences. It is characterized by a maladaptive behavior pattern, in which the person prioritizes drug use: alcohol, cocaine, cannabis, psychotropic drugs, etc. and puts it before more important values, causing significant deterioration or discomfort. There can also be addiction to some behaviours such as gambling, internet, sex or shopping, in these cases we are talking about behavioural addictions or addictions without a substance. We must know that any addiction is a serious, chronic and fatal disease, in which the patient can do nothing on his own, and needs adequate therapeutic help.

Benefits of Neurofeedback and EMDR treatment for addictions
For people who are addicted to substances, quitting is just the first step toward recovery. The vast majority of addictive substances cause imbalances in brain activity and brain wave patterns.
The use of Neurofeedback in the treatment of addictions has been progressively investigated in the last 15 years, accumulating plenty of clinical evidence to be considered an effective treatment. It is a treatment that helps to find the necessary balance and to improve behaviour and attention, especially in adolescents who have taken stimulants. People with addiction problems show specific brain wave patterns, which EMDR and Neurofeedback tend to change, thus providing effective treatment.
Some of the benefits of these treatments are:
- Increase in decision-making capacity
- Enhances and promotes the ability to change
- Positive changes regarding personality and mood
- Greater emotional stability
- Physical and mental calm
- Improvement in general brain functions
- Reduction of discomfort state and compulsive desire
- Improvement in cognitive functions
The treatment we offer at Neuroscenter aims to lead the patient and his environment to to a full recovery, being able to regain control of his life through Neurofeedback and EMDR, our new generation and non-invasive therapies.
We provide a neurometabolic study where we assess intracellular thyroid function and study of metabolites of neurotransmitters such as dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin. Study of erythrocyte fatty acids to determine EPA / DHA and AA ratio. Study of intestinal and nutritional permeability to assess alterations in endogenous opioid metabolism by feeding.
