A Sober Way Home Brain Center – Neurofeedback program
The ASWH Brain Center was designed to:
- Increase addiction recovery rates
- Aide in resolving impulse control disorders
- Diminish eating disorders
- Integrate trauma
- and repair ADD/ADHD, anxiety disorders (including OCD), insomnia, and chronic pain issues.
How do we do this?
Through a systematic use of Neurofeedback and applied neuro-technologies, we retrain the brainwaves and develop new neural pathways to enable clients to have more adaptive brain functioning (making better decisions, feeling less anxious, focusing better, and feeling more at peace.)
- Relapse Prevention:According to the UCLA addiction study, only 43 sessions of neurofeedback, in conjunction with a 12-step or faith-based program, are needed to increase recovery rates, 1 year after treatment, from 8% to 77%.
- Detoxification and Treatment Retention:Clients using Neurofeedback and Alpha Stim Technology find it easier and more comfortable to detox in early treatment while also being more able to stay engaged in treatment during the first stages of treatment recovery.
- Meditation:Addicted Clients (including those with process addictions) have brains that struggle through meditation and contemplative practices. We offer not only Neurofeedback, as a remedy, but also the Hemi-Sync Brainwave Integration Programs and the P-Roshi System for medial prefrontal cortex development.
- Anxiety:Alcoholics seem to have been “hard-wired” for anxiety (alcohol being a terrific anti-anxiety drug when it still worked.) Neurofeedback gives the anxiety sufferer relief by helping the over-aroused parts of the brain to calm. Anxiety disorders of all kinds have been completely resolved through the process.
- Depression:Mood stabilization is greatly improved using Neurofeedback and Alpha Stim Technology.
- Trauma Integration:
From PTSD to a long-term, daily repetitive trauma, Neurofeedback utilizes the Alpha Theta protocols to integrate trauma without retraumatizing the Client. Attachment trauma also improves significantly.
Is This a Magic Bullet?
No. But it’s the closest that the treatment world has come to a magic bullet in the last 50 years. Neurofeedback is the future of addiction treatment.

She has specializations in Addiction, Trauma, Neurofeedback, and Applied Neuro-technology. Janice received her Master’s degree from Pacific Oaks College, followed by
a year of post-graduate studies at Pacifica Graduate Institute. She completed a two-year
program at the New Center for Psychoanalysis, and then went on to the Doctoral Program at Ryokan College in West Los Angeles. She interned at the Lighthouse Trauma Training Center and has attended the annual UCLA Attachment/Trauma program for the last eight years. Janice has been a part of the Grof Transpersonal Training program Since 2001.
She was trained in Neurofeedback from one of the pioneers in both eeg biofeedback and the Neurofeedback/Addiction Studies: Bill Scott. She was later certified by EEG Spectrum in 2010. Janice’s primary philosophy regarding the treatment of addiction and addictive disorders is: Heal the body (brain), Mind, Emotions, and Spirit. A Sober Way Home does just this.
