While at Lucida Treatment Center, clients healing from addiction and mental health disorders have the opportunity to receive neurofeedback sessions. Lucida uses BrainPaint®, which is a computerized neurofeedback system. It is also a noninvasive, organic process that is scientifically proven to help to improve mood, confidence, performance and memory.
Neurofeedback works as a brain exercise. It serves as a direct training of brain functions, helping the brain to work more efficiently, and activates brain waves that change and produce more functional patterns. During neurofeedback, several small sensors are attached to the scalp and the recorded levels of brain activity are viewed on a computer screen.

The kinds of brainwaves or signal pulses from the brain are as follows:
- Beta waves – detected with high level of mental activity which is used during problem-solving and decision-making
- SMR waves – detected when the mind is at attention, storing and sequencing information that is later used
- Alpha waves – usually found in an alert, but at rest state of mind
- Theta waves – found in a state of mind that is associated with mental creativity and inspiration
- Delta waves – found during deep relaxation
Neurofeedback is based on electrical brain activity that impacts self-regulation, which is a necessary part of good brain function. Neurofeedback addresses problems such as addictions, anxiety, depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), behavioral disorders, sleep disorders, headaches and other issues.
An Effective Tool for Long-Term Recovery
With BrainPaint® neurofeedback, the main objective is to teach your brain to achieve and maintain balance, instead of becoming reactive when trying to cope with events that are out of your control.
Neurofeedback has a great calming effect on those healing from substance abuse, helping to ease anxiety and depression, among other difficulties common to early recovery. Instead of resorting to self-destructive coping mechanisms you used to use to deal with problems, neurofeedback allows you to see healthier options and choices.
Another benefit of neurofeedback is that it doesn’t require expensive procedures such as brain scans to get started. Results in life improvements in key areas, including gains in memory and performance as well as improved mood and increased confidence, are measurable and produced in a relatively short period of time.
This is an important decision. Call 844-874-8503 today to find out if Lucida is the right choice for you or your loved one.
