Biofeedback is a form of therapy that helps people understand their body’s natural functions and more importantly, learn how to control them for their benefit. While heart rate, muscle tension, body temperature, sweat, and breathing are often believed to be mostly involuntary biological processes, with practice, people can learn how to better regulate these functions.
With the assistance of various machines that are designed to monitor these body’s natural processes, patients in biofeedback therapy will start by trying to get a better understanding of each individual function. The machines will send visual or auditory cues that match the rhythm of these processes, making recognition of them easier. Over time and with the assistance of a trained biofeedback therapist, patients will move past recognition and begin learning how to control these responses. When patients are able to self-regulate these processes, they can transform their body’s excitatory reaction to times of high stress and anxiety into a more relaxed state. Biofeedback therapy can be used to treat patients struggling with a variety of different ailments including drug addiction or alcoholism.
Biofeedback for Substance Abuse Recovery at Banyan Chicago
Along with a series of other addiction therapies, we offer biofeedback therapy in Chicago for patients at every level of treatment. Biofeedback therapy for addiction recovery can ultimately increase a person’s chances of finding lasting sobriety.
Addiction recovery is a high-stress time, especially when patients first begin to encounter drug triggers. The body’s natural response is to speed up processes like heart rate and breathing, but this excitatory response can interfere with higher-level thinking and lead the person in recovery to feel overwhelmed. Ultimately, this reaction could lead to relapse. Our Chicago biofeedback program teaches patients how to control these processes so that their bodies do not spiral out of control at the first sign of distress. Instead, patients can return to a calmer state where they are better able to assess the situation and move past it.
Biofeedback therapy can also be an effective means of treatment for people struggling with chronic pain. For people getting treatment for an opioid addiction, chronic pain may have been what led them to addiction in the first place as they began abusing painkillers to find relief. Now that they are in recovery, biofeedback is a safer way to manage that pain without putting their sobriety at risk.
