Defeat Depression and Addiction
Depression is one of the most common mental disorders and is one of the most common reasons why people resort to substance abuse. The National Institute of Mental Health reported that an estimated 6.9 percent of U.S. adults had at least one major depressive episode in 2012. Other studies have shown that as many as 10 percent of American adults deal with diagnosable depression, but only 20 percent of those people ever receive treatment. There are millions of people suffering from depression who don’t even realize it.
When a person has a substance abuse problem, it’s almost always linked to a preexisting mental disorder, and in many cases, has worsened the condition. Depressed or not, it’s quite common for people to drink and use drugs to cope with grief, stress, heartbreak and a wide range of other adverse situations. When a person is drinking to try and help with their depression, the two can form a very lethal relationship which will only strengthen over time.

Light Sound Neurotherapy
This method combines comforting light and sound combinations to promote relaxation in the brain. It has been reported to improve sleep, relieve pain and reduce anxiety.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
The combination of counseling, mental imaging and eye movements work together to create positive associations in the brain and help patients cope with trauma and depression.
