Your Brain on Drugs and Alcohol
Science shows that when you drink alcohol or use drugs, serotonin and dopamine are released in your brain.
Like those "feel good" endorphins, these chemicals flow along a pathway in the brain and are received by neurotransmitter receptors causing the behavior to be reinforced. This process convinces your brain to continue to use substances that make you feel good, even when you know you shouldn’t, even when you no longer feel pleasure from what you’re using.
Your brain can be convincing.
When enough of these elements build up, along with the effect of genetics, or certain life events, your brain becomes expert at this process. The pathway becomes a “superhighway,” and you can't experience pleasure except when using your drug of choice.
You are now addicted.
Our technology treats and helps repair the addicted brain.
Our number one goal is treating the causes of your addiction. Therapies we provide are proven to clear out these stored, out of control chemicals, opening up blocked receptors in the brain. This results in the unlearning and uncraving of the addiction behavior right down to a primal, neurological level.
By restoring a normal brain pleasure system, the feel good function can be rehabilitated.
In other words, we help turn superhighways back into peaceful pathways to a life free of addiction.
