Safe, Confidential Treatment For Men

The Nation’s Premier Inpatient Treatment for Sex Addiction
Gentle Path at The Meadows

The services offered through The Meadows’ dedicated trauma department include a variety of individualized, biofeedback devices that are not conducive to a group format. In our innovative Brain Center, patients can utilize state-of-the-art equipment to aid in grounding and self-regulation to confront the deeper issues with a “calmer spirit.” This cutting-edge approach addresses the neuroscience of trauma by attempting to better regulate the limbic system in the brain, which allows for better integration and implementation of more traditional approaches incorporated in the treatment process.

Neurofeedback Therapy

Neurofeedback (EEG Biofeedback) is direct training of brain function, by which the brain learns to function more efficiently. We observe the brain in action from moment to moment and show that information back to the individual. The brain is rewarded for changing its own activity to more appropriate patterns. Once we determine the level of the different brainwave frequencies, protocols are developed for training the brain to make more or less of specific frequencies.

Neurofeedback is a gradual learning process, and it applies to any aspect of brain function that we can measure. Neurofeedback is also called EEG Biofeedback, because it is based on electrical brain activity, the electroencephalogram, or EEG. Neurofeedback is training in self-regulation. It is simply biofeedback applied to the brain directly. Self-regulation is a necessary part of good brain function. Self-regulation training allows the system (the central nervous system) to function better. Changing the EEG improves the self-regulation of brain waves and brain state. When the brain works better, the individual functions better.

Neurofeedback addresses problems of:

  • Brain dysregulation, including:
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Various sleep disorders
  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • PMS 
  • Emotional disturbances and organic brain conditions such as:
    • Seizures
    • The autism spectrum
    • Cerebral palsy

We apply electrodes to the scalp to observe brainwave activity. The signal is processed by computer so we can see information about certain key brainwave frequencies. This information is presented to the person in the form of a visual display/video game. The person is controlling the video game with their brain. We show the ebb and flow of this activity back to the person, who attempts to change the activity level. This is done from the feedback process rewarding the brain for producing more of the desired levels of activity. The individual then attempts to shape their brainwave activity towards a more regulated pattern. The frequencies we target, and the specific location on the scalp, are specific to the conditions we are trying to address and specific to that individual.
