treatment for addictions,
trauma and related disorders.
Addiction is a brain-based problem, and it demands a brain-based solution. The will is over-rated when it comes to the addicted brain. The breakthrough study on the application of neurofeedback/EEG biofeedback to alcoholism was performed by Eugene Peniston, Ph.D., psychologist on the staff at Fort Lyons Veterans Administration Hospital in Colorado. The treatment outcome for alcohol addiction treatment for Viet Nam veteran pilots was abysmal at the time. Peniston had personally experienced biofeedback and neurofeedback at the Menninger Clinic where an early research group in EEG biofeedback was continuing its work. The group was aware of the benefits of EEG biofeedback for alcoholism, but was not their real interest. Dr. Peniston took the method back with him to Fort Lyons where he undertook a controlled study. The results were striking. Most of the veterans treated with Neurofeedback (seven out of ten) were no longer abusing alcohol after the training. Everyone in the control group, which received the regular in-patient treatment, continued the pattern of addiction after release. The contrast could not have been more dramatic.
Brain trauma can be a result of physical injury, emotional shock, post traumatic stress disorder, sexual abuse and/or other life experiences; e.g., high fever or viral infections. There is ample evidence that people in addiction recovery programs have experienced trauma, and it has not been properly diagnosed and treated.
There is ample evidence that large numbers of people in addiction recovery programs have undiagnosed and untreated attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Those experiencing addictions fit well into the categories known as brain dysfunction or unregulated patterns. They are using chemicals that are stimulating or sedating. When the brain is balanced with neurofeedback, the person experiences a sense of well being "naturally," thereby reducing or eliminating the need for chemicals.
A holistic, painless, drug-free treatment utilizing cutting-edge technology to retrain the brain.
Addictions, attention deficit hyperactivity disorders, post traumatic stress disorders and emotional disturbances - all these problems can be caused by dysfunctional brainwave activity. Neurofeedback is direct training of an individual's brainwave activity. Each brain is different, and neurofeedback can treat each client with a unique, targeted program.

What Our Patients Have to Say
"I was a 32-year-old divorced mother of three with a serious drinking/drug problem and an ex-spouse who was abusive. The folks at Better Brain Care listened to me, cared for me, and used neurofeedback and Alpha Theta treatment to help me get and stay sober. My kids and I are now safe. I'm still clean and sober, and I'm on the journey of recovery and restoration. I still keep in touch [with Better Brain Care] to let them know I'm doing well. A heartfelt 'thank you' to their staff!"
"My wife and I have suffered all these years with my nightmares and combative behavior while asleep, until I began to go through Alpha Theta treatment with Mr. Jones and the Better Brain Care staff ... now her sleep and mine are greatly improved. I'm finally getting some rest!"
