PTSD, Addiction, and Neurofeedback


PTSD trauma and severe anxiety disorders have been left untreated or mishandled for decades. In regards to the military stance on it, there have been countless stories of traumatized men and women suffering from PTSD and addiction that are disregarded or even pressured to use alcohol as a release. “Hitting the bar” was a common expression and led to what we have now in our society – individuals suffering from untreated PTSD and addiction issues that are wallowing in despair.

There is a solution. Together We Can has a comprehensive PTSD treatment program that is holistic and scientific. We combine age-old treatments such as acupuncture and yoga, and we also provide Neurofeedback – am electrical non-invasive rewiring of the brain patterns. PTSD and addiction don’t have to be the final outcome of a person’s life. Happiness and long-term sobriety are available if the right steps are taken,  and TWC offers the steps to freedom.

“Less well known is that an astonishing 52% of men with PTSD are diagnosed as alcoholics and 34% suffer from drug addiction. Of the women diagnosed with PTSD, 28% experience alcoholism and 27% drug addiction. Among the treatment modalities creating some fresh buzz and attracting more research and treatment funds is neurofeedback, a process by which computerized brain data is fed back in sensory form to patients. (It is also known as EEG biofeedback, or NFT for neurofeedback training.”

A short excerpt on how it works:

“Neurofeedback for alcoholism, and some other addictions, is a process of teaching the client first to increase the amount of alpha waves, and then to increase theta. The person progresses into a relaxed, then dreamy and hypnogogic state. Eyes are closed, and they receive feedback via sounds presented through headphones. Usually a reclining chair is used, a blanket is offered to increase comfort and the sense of security and the room is darkened or a light-preventing mask is used.”

– Quote from the International Society of Neurofeedback and Research.
