SOBRIETY: RECONNECT with neuroscience.
Science teaches that the brain finds interest in substances because it wants to solve a neurological problem. Your brain sought relief -- relief from it's overstimulated or understimulated state.
Neurofeedback repairs brain damage from drugs.
Hypnotherapy clears personal trauma.
Heart rate variability restores clarity and health.
These help you find deeper peace and stability.
There wasn't any part of you that was thinking -- that first time -- that you'd end up in recovery. I like to point out that nobody smokes their first cigarette because they crave nicotine...but that's where it ends up for most people. The cravings.
Nobody knows about cravings the first time they use.
Millions of people know the rest of the story. Life becomes very messy. Life, itself, may even have been threatened.
There's good news. White knuckles aren't the only solution. Better regulation means clearer thought, more ability to consider consequences, a calmer mood, restful sleep, or a score of other talents the brain may have lost through using.
Your brain can get the original, core dysregulation solved. Hypnotherapy and neurofeedback get to the psychobiological problems that probably caused using in the first place. This removes the reason for relapse. Clients say that neurofeedback saved their life. It might save yours, too.

THE MYSTERY OF CHRONIC PAIN: IT COMES FROM YOUR BRAIN
Your body can't actually signal pain! What??? Yes! It's your brain that decides that a nerve signal means pain. Neuroscience informs us how to help the brain relieve pain commands.
Pain doctors prescribe substances with debilitating, dangerous, or addictive side effects. They recommend talk therapy to deal with depression and anxiety and PT to improve movement.
Hypnotherapy and stimulation technologies can work wonders. Many of my clients are able to reduce or eliminate their pain medications, sleep comfortably, and return to doing things that they have been missing.
