Brookside Institute offers treatment protocol that combines the latest in neuroscience (TMS Neurofeedback), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and medicine to treat addiction and co-occurring disorders (dual diagnosis).
Unlike other treatment centers that may offer "non 12 step programs" the Brookside Recovery Protocol ™ is a science-based, medical model that applies over twenty years of scientific research to provide a comprehensive treatment for addiction. Although other treatment programs may claim to be non 12 step, none provide the same level of care and innovative approach to addiction as Brooksides individualized, all-inclusive treatment protocol. Many programs have recently jumped on the non 12 step trend; however, Brookside Institute is the pioneer in science-based, medical model treatment for addiction and has always used this model to treat addiction.
At the Neuroscience Center we use TMS and Neurofeedback as treatment.
Magno-EEG Resonant Therapy (MERT) is an innovative treatment procedure using a noninvasive electromagnetic resonant process to tune up or down specific brainwaves. This is a refined process of the traditional Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) that is unique to Brookside Institute NeuroScience Center. Unlike TMS, MERT is precisely calculated based on the individuals electroencephalography (EEG) to deliver the perfect combination of electromagnetic resonance to bring the brainwave back into balance.
The MERT process begins with a baseline EEG recording to characterize the patients individual brainwave signature. The signature is then used to determine the MERT treatment settings, which include output intensity, stimulus frequency, location, duration and maintenance plan to bring the brainwaves back into normal patterns.
As a second treatment option, Neurofeedback is a revolutionary non-invasive procedure that can improve symptoms of a variety of behavioral disorders, learning disabilities and mental illness. It is a form of biofeedback that presents a patients brainwave activity in real time using a video display technique that allows the patient to learn how to control and change his or her brainwaves to healthier patterns or function. Through several sessions, the patient learns to control objects on the monitor, in essence using his or her mind to play a video game. As the patients brain function improves, the difficulty of the game is increased.
The neurofeedback procedure at Brookside Institute begins by assessing the brain activity, using EEG recorded brainwaves, or brain signals, as it relates to abilities to learn, concentrate and control emotions. This comprehensive analysis is used as a guide to re-train specific areas of the brain using exercises that target the identified brain areas that are compromised.
