At Willow House at The Meadows' innovative Brain Center, patients use state-of-the-art neurobehavioral equipment to aid in grounding and self-regulation to confront their 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.
The Brain Center
Our Brain Center equipment includes:
Neurofeedback, also called neurobiofeedback or neurotherapy, is a type of biofeedback that uses real-time displays of brain activity—most commonly electroencephalography (EEG), to teach self-regulation of brain function. It addresses brain dysregulation, including anxiety, depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), addictive disorders, and emotional disturbances.
Cranio-electro stimulation (CES) shows research over a 25-year period as useful for sleep, anxiety, and improved cognitive functioning in populations such as recovering drug addicts and alcoholics. A very small modulated electrical current is supplied to the earlobes. Patients can engage in other activities during CES sessions. Audio/Visual Stimulation with CES This device combines audio-visual stimulation (AVS) with CES in one unit. These are entrainment devices that combine light and sound to increase the prevalence of certain stress reduction, insomnia, mood disorders, mental sharpness, memory, and cognitive functioning. There are preinstalled sessions for energizing, meditation, brain brightening, sleep, and mood-boosting.
Heart-Rate Variability (HRV)
This biofeedback device features engaging graphics and graphing capabilities to help patients learn to relax and develop coherent breathing patterns. HRV is helpful in reducing stress, gaining clarity, and developing greater self-awareness of internal reactions.
State-of-The-Art Treatment for Women
Willow House at The Meadows utilizes cutting-edge therapies to help patients in our care achieve their goal of long-lasting recovery. Women are guided on their journey by examining the underlying causes of addiction and co-occurring disorders. The goal is for these individuals to gain the courage to face difficult issues, including grief and loss; heal from emotional trauma; and become accountable for their own feelings, behaviors, and recovery.
