Biofeedback Treatment And Therapy

What Is Biofeedback


When trying to stay clean, it can help to be able to control body functions that we consider involuntary such as how fast we breathe or our pulse rate.

Biofeedback Therapy works on helping the substance abuser consciously take charge of their mind and body functions.

This information can also be transmitted back to the body of the patient. The information relayed can help the patient to use relaxation exercises in order to gain control over how their body responds during stressful situations, which can cause withdrawals and cravings.


The process starts with placing of sensors on the skin of the patient. These sensors are connected to the special medical device which furnishes the medical professionals providing the treatment "feedback" on the patient's "bio" signs.


Biofeedback Therapy And Addiction Treatment

This technique can help people control their responses to body functions. This will the show what is needed on the patient's treatment and the doctors can design that.

Many of our body responses are involuntary. These unconscious body functions can add to the agony we are going through when we are experiencing intense pressure. The body's reaction to stressful physical and emotional situations can be monitored using biofeedback therapy.


Some of these body responses are:

  • Breathing levels
  • Heartbeat rhythm
  • Temperature of the skin
  • Blood pressure
  • Sweating
  • Muscle movements

When a person uses drugs or alcohol, they can experience more physical stress and the rate of some involuntary responses may increase. Withdrawal symptoms during detox like nervousness, hopelessness, unrelenting muscle pain and agitation can be treated using Biofeedback therapy.

The patient can read for themselves the results produced by the Biofeedback machines. For example, the heart rate of an individual could have the looks of a pulsating light or an image on a computer screen. The patient needs to be calm and relax when the pulse on the machine shows that the heart rate is faster than normal. The pulsating light or image on the screen will slow down simultaneously as the heart rate does.
