Description

Persistent, meaningful recovery is notoriously difficult to achieve. This is especially so for patients who suffer from comorbidities such as learning differences, mood disorders, mild traumatic brain injuries and others. Purely psychological approaches to substance recovery have value, but risk focusing on superficial symptoms and behaviors while leaving root causes unaddressed.

Brain imaging technologies have skyrocketed in precision and in the volume of their use, providing an impressive view of the brain’s connectome–a comprehensive map of neural connections in the brain, which may be thought of as its “”wiring diagram””.

In part, this gap between fundamental neurological knowledge and effective treatment persists because most brain imaging technologies either have their own health risks, are necessarily confined to hospital settings, or lack the temporal precision to resolve important features of brain activity as a person actually thinks.

One technique that capitalizes on our knowledge of the connectome while evading the limitations of other brain imaging modalities is quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG). qEEG measures the naturally occurring electrochemical activity of the brain as it works, in real-time. Measurements can be performed safely and conveniently. By analysing qEEG measurements of a patient against very large databases of qEEG data collected from thousands of subjects, one can conduct qEEG neurometrics, assessing the efficiency of individual neural circuits to pinpoint dysfunction and inform diagnoses. Moreover, neurometric analyses provide a roadmap for constructing individualized brain optimization regimens to build capacity in specific neural circuits. By combining periodic neurometrics with regular optimization, we can obtain reliable, objective data on the progress of individual patients as they achieve permanent cognitive repair.

Neurologics has worked with more than 20,000 brains, revealing and repairing brain issues with patients who suffer from substance addiction, PTSD, concussion, mood & anxiety disorders, cognitive decline, learning differences and other conditions. In addition, Neurologics works with high-performing athletes, executives and students to seek peak performance. The broad application of this technology attests to the simplicity of its central operating principal: the brain is the brain is the brain.

We present results of our work with those in substance recovery. The results show the breadth of improvements achieved via neurometrics and optimization. In addition to significant gains across a variety of cognitive and emotional regulatory domains, these patients experienced 3.7-fold greater success in maintaining 18-month sobriety than patients receiving the typical standard of care.

Target Audience
  • Nurses & Physicians (ACCME & ANCC)
  • Psychologists (APA)
  • Social Workers (ASWB)
  • NY SW, NY MHC, NY MFT
  • Addiction Counselors (NADAAC)
Learning Objectives

1. Learn how advances in brain imaging have contributed to the understanding of the brain’s connectome, the collection of local, regional and global neural circuits with which the brain processes information.
2. Appreciate the distinguishing features of quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG) as compared to other brain imaging modalities
3. Understand how qEEG neurometrics analyses real-time measurements of a brain at work against massive databases of qEEG data to reveal a profile of functional and dysfunctional brain activities; and how this profile informs personalized qEEG-based remediation
4. Observe the significant impact of qEEG neurometrics and optimization on the maintenance of sobriety.

As a Jointly Accredited Organization, Amedco is approved to offer social work continuing education by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program. Organizations, not individual courses, are approved under this program. State and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether an individual course may be accepted for continuing education credit. Amedco maintains responsibility for this course. Social Workers completing this course receive GENERAL continuing education credits.
