Addiction is a brain disorder. It is not a lack of discipline or a moral issue. Brain training works to normalize what is dysfunctional. This type of work builds a strong foundation for recovery and relapse prevention
In the brain, the reward network or pleasure network is the same as the addiction network. (This includes the amygdala and hippocampus). Addictive drugs including alcohol change the network dynamics by introducing neurophysiological imbalance.
We deal with many kinds of addictions, including alcohol, cocaine, sex-addiction, and gambling. Although there are many profiles in addiction, very often the individual with addictive traits shows a low power EEG, where the therapeutic potential stimulation is above average.
