“I was amazed when you showed me the areas of my brain that weren’t working properly on the monitor. You showed me my brain scans and Neurofeedback results on the computer screen. I watched my healing. I could actually see the changes I was feeling.” –T.T.
Recovery Grounded in Modern Neuroscience
The Crosby Clinic’s Neuroscience Institute offers the most advanced research, diagnosis and treatment for substance abuse and psychological disorders. Our research has revealed how the brain controls addiction and problematic behavior, and this research, paired with integrated therapy and a supportive team of professionals, provides a holistic approach to recovery grounded in proven science. As a result, The Crosby Clinic achieves higher than average success rates in helping individuals cope with and overcome their behavioral and emotional disorders.
Our team of medical specialists understands the nuanced nature of the brain through advanced technology and testing capabilities, including:
- Single Photon Emission Computerized Tomography (SPECT) Brain Scan: A sophisticated nuclear medicine study that looks directly at blood flow in the brain and indirectly at brain activity (or metabolism) to help identify the impact of drug abuse, atypical or unresponsive aggressive behavior, trauma to the head, dementia, atypical or unresponsive mood disorders, strokes, seizures and more.
- Quantitative Electroencephalogram (qEEG) Brain Mapping: This pinpoints abnormal brain waves and their location, often used to evaluate autism, ADD/ADHD, learning disorders, anxiety, depression and other behaviors to determine if they are neurologically based.
- Biofeedback: The process of identifying, measuring and manipulating many physiological functions to improve health, performance, and the physiological changes which often occur in conjunction with changes to thoughts, emotions and behavior. Eventually, these changes may be maintained without the use of extra equipment or medication.
- Neurofeedback: A noninvasive and painless process to monitor neurological reactions to the treatment process.
The brain has plasticity to be adjusted, stabilized and stimulated for growth and recovery. Often, these conditions are diagnosed based on symptoms and characteristics for insurance purposes, resulting in misdiagnoses and mismanaged care.
For example, today we know that PTSD, bipolar disorder and alcohol can result in shrinkage of the pre-frontal cortex, diminishing executive functions and memory while causing early dementia. Our process is unquestionably New Age and uses advanced technology and proven science to accurately diagnose and treat a variety of conditions.
“Traditional mental health care units, drug rehab centers and clinics often do not employ the new technology, the knowledge, the professional expertise and the depth of care that addiction treatment requires. Often, rehabs and even doctors who have to manage many patients keep patients with multiple disorders, even though their facility is not staffed or equipped to identify underlying causes, or able to take the time for the all-important individualized congruent treatments …it is a shame.” S.H., M.D.
