If you or a someone you love suffers from addiction, then you know it’s not caused by a lack of willpower or low moral standards.
Someone who is chemically addicted to a substance can’t stop simply by choosing to do so.
At NeuroHealth Maine, we understand the complexity and severity of addiction. We’re here to help you on the path to healing and restoration for a better life.
Neuroscience now shows that addiction is a brain disease. When one is addicted the brain is not functioning properly and this leads to an inability to control the use of a legal or illegal drug or medication. Alcohol, marijuana and nicotine are all considered drugs. When addicted, a person may continue using the drug despite the harm it causes. Research has shown that craving is an important contributor to the development and maintenance of the addictive process.
TMS therapy offers tremendous potential for a medication-free approach to treating alcohol cravings and dependence as it treats specific areas of the brain involved in the addictive process.
Researchers at Medical University of South Carolina found that TMS is a “noninvasive brain stimulation technique can dampen brain activity in response to drug cues in chronic alcohol users and chronic cocaine users.’
