SOBA Malibu Recovery Center launches Neurofeedback ProgramMay 18, 2010 2:01 am
SOBA Malibu Recovery Center(www.sobamalibu.com), a California licensed addiction center, and Brainpaint, LLC will begin training and implementation of BrainPaint software in order to achieve a more in-depth understanding and acute treatment for alcohol and drug addiction.
“When you or a loved one is unfortunate enough to contract the disease of addiction you have to treat it as you were treating the enemy during a war, said Greg Hannley, Chairman and CEO of SOBA Malibu Recovery Center. Whether it’s equine therapy, hypnotherapy, EMDR, Yoga, a Ropes Course, among others, you have to fight it on all fronts. Our studies have shown that the advances that have been made in EEG bio-feedback have been remarkable, so we decided to pursue this modality.”
BrainPaint – The next generation in EEG biofeedback
Simple to use, yet sophisticated in scope
BrainPaint is a state-of-the-art neurofeedback system that incorporates a comprehensive assessment tool, which systematically calculates protocol suggestions used to improve and restore activity related to brain function. This assessment tool is revolutionary, turning SOBA Malibu clinicians into top practitioners in a fraction of the time. SOBA therapist and practitioners appreciate the automation – similar to that of computerized chess crunching data to explore the potential of future moves – allowing the focus to be on the human aspects of the session.
The software transfers knowledge and experience from top researchers to SOBA Malibu practitioners. It incorporates Bill Scott’s 15 years of clinical, research and teaching experience fine tuning neurofeedback protocols from the following leaders in the field:
Barry Sterman’s SMR training
Dale Walters’s Alpha-Theta training
Eugene Penniston’s Alpha-Theta training
Susan and Siegfried Othmer’s Beta, SMR and Theta assessment process
Renate Drechsler’s Slow Cortical Potential training
In 2005, Bill Scott, David Kaiser, Siegfried Othmer and Stephen Sideroff conducted a 121 subject randomized control trial using a hybrid of the aforementioned scientists’ protocols. After demonstrating the efficacy of these neurofeedback protocols, the study was published in a peer review journal.
