WHAT IS NEUROFEEDBACK?
Once we have made progress, we can move to group therapy and work on interpersonal skills with other DBT participants. These skills can help improve relationships with family members, romantic partners, friends, work colleagues, and other people who are close to us. DBT groups are great for providing mutual support and giving additional motivation to apply the newly adopted skills in everyday life.
Lastly, we assure our clients that they can count on us during every moment of their recovery process. Here at Fountain Hills Recovery, we want to be the backbone of your support system. That’s why we have dedicated therapists answering your calls even after your initial therapy session is completed. They can provide you with the necessary support when you need it the most.

HOW DOES NEUROFEEDBACK WORK?
A patient first completes a 90-question symptom assessment administered by a BrainPaint professional, who then evaluates the results to identify parts of the brain that may be under-aroused.
During a typical session, the BrainPaint professional applies electroencephalogram (EEG) sensors on the patient’s scalp that pick up electrical signals of different frequencies and wavelengths. The sensors may be adjusted 1-3 times during a 25-30 minute session.
During this time, the patient listens to audio tracks, and watches fractal visuals on a computer screen. BrainPaint aims to identify the types of patterns and music that induce a relaxed state, and then to reproduce (or “paint”) them by practicing becoming calm. Patients ideally learn how to activate certain centers of the brain that may be under-stimulated. Protocols are updated as the patient makes progress over time.
CAN NEUROFEEDBACK HELP ME?
Neurotherapy like BrainPaint is designed to help people with ADHD, anxiety, autism spectrum disorder, brain injuries, mood disorders, fibromyalgia, headaches, and sleep problems.
The American Society of Addiction Medicine defines addiction as a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. This dysfunction is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by substance use and other behaviors.
The core to the technology is that the brain can be trained to change a person’s behavior, for example with drug and alcohol addiction. BrainPaint treatment essentially ‘rewires’ your brain to eliminate harmful addictions and has successfully helped many find permanent sobriety.
