NeuroElectric Therapy for Withdrawal Symptoms?

Call 800-662-8079 to speak with an addiction treatment counselor.
Who Answers?

More than anything else, withdrawal symptoms become the single greatest barrier to overcoming a drug abuse problem. Not only do withdrawal symptoms make it difficult to stop, but they also play a pivotal role in driving drug-using behavior.

While traditional approaches for treating withdrawal symptoms do a good job at relieving discomfort, these methods tend to treat the problem rather than the root of the problem. NeuroElectric Therapy not only helps provide relief, but also works to treat the brain mechanisms that give rise to withdrawal symptoms.

The Problem with Withdrawal Symptoms

Addictive drugs (and alcohol) have a way of “rewiring” the brain’s chemical and electrical networks over time, according to Stanford University School of Medicine. During the course drug use, the body’s systems skew off course as the brain loses its ability to maintain normal bodily functioning. Withdrawal symptoms develop out of these conditions.

In effect, withdrawals symptoms become more and more severe the longer a person keeps abusing drugs. Once drug use stops, a person stands to experience the most severe from of withdrawal.

After so many months or years of trying to self-medicate uncomfortable withdrawal effects with drugs, it becomes extremely difficult to make it through the detox stage without some form of treatment support.

NeuroElectric Therapy: How Does It Work?

NeuroElectric Therapy

NeuroElectric Therapy restores normal neurotransmitter production.

According to the Subtle Energies & Energy Medicine Journal, NeuroElectric Therapy interacts with the brain’s electrical system via electrodes that lie atop a portion of the temporal bone that sits behind the ears.

During the withdrawal symptoms stage, a NeuroElectric Therapy device can be worn continuously for seven to 10 days depending on the severity of the drug problem. The device itself is a pocket-sized module that attaches to a headset so it can be worn for extended time periods without interfering with regular movement.

Benefits of NeuroElectric Therapy

The “high” effects brought on by addictive substances, such as heroin and cocaine result from how these drugs force the brain to secrete abnormally large amounts of neurotransmitter chemicals. This means, over time, drug abuse slowly but surely disrupts the brain’s chemical system.

A NeuroElectric Therapy device is calibrated to deliver electrical pulses at specific intervals. This mechanism works to restore normal neurotransmitter production rates by resetting or “rewiring” electrical impulses between the brain’s cells, according to Pennsylvania State University.

In terms of withdrawal symptoms, these effects not only relieve acute or early-stage withdrawal symptoms, but can also provide relief in cases of chronic withdrawal where symptoms can last for 18 months or longer.

A Holistic Approach to Withdrawal

Treatment Considerations

As with any type of alternative therapy approach, NeuroElectric Therapy should be used alongside ongoing counseling and behavioral treatment approaches. As NeuroElectric Therapy only treats the physical aspects of withdrawal, counseling and behavioral treatments are needed to address the psychological dependence that addiction breeds.
