Sensory Enrichment Therapy
Scientific research shows environmental enrichment improves the brain’s ability to overcome addiction
We believe sensory enrichment could help in the following areas:
- Fewer withdrawals symptoms,
- Fewer clients wanting to leave against professional advice,
- Improved mood regulation during and post treatment,
and even possibly
- Long term recovery with a lower rate of relapse.
How it works!
We use sensory enrichment to help addicts feel more in control and more at peace by:
helping the brain to re-balance its neurochemistry
facilitating increased processing speed between both sides of the brain
improving sleep mechanisms
populating weak brain functions with new connections
Environmental Enrichment is a field of neuroscience that studies the impact of sensory, motor, cognitive and social experiences on brain development and brain function. Neuroplasticity, or the lifelong ability of the brain to create more neurons, more connections, and more supportive tissue, and to re-balance neurotransmitters is now widely understood.
Sensory Enrichment Therapy is a new evidence-based treatment modality that was developed by translating the protocols used in the science lab into short, fun, hands-on experiences that people can do from home and in residential programs to trigger the brain’s plasticity mechanisms.
It has been validated in randomized controlled trials with children with developmental disorders including autism spectrum disorder. Children who followed the program were 6 times more likely to achieve clinically significant gains compared to their peers who only followed standard care.
We are looking for addiction recovery treatment centers interested in working with us to create the next-generation residential programs.
