Biofeedback Therapy And Treatment

Defining Biofeedback


One can stop their over dependency on drugs by learning to take charge of their feelings and normal body functions such as inhaling.

Taking charge of your body and its operation is one way through which a person can get over the use of drugs and this is the whole concept of Biofeedback.

Sounds, flashes of light and images can all be used to show the patient their bio-signs. 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.


How Biofeedback Therapy Helps Treat Addiction Treatment

Helping recovering addicts to understand the involuntary functions of their body is the primary function of biofeedback therapy. With the help of this data, professionals then design medication programs to meet specific requirements.

There are many functions in our body that occur involuntarily. If a person is tense, nervous or in a stressful situation, these automatic reactions may worsen his state. Biofeedback therapy is utilised to understand how the body is reacting to physical and emotional attention unconsciously.


Some unconscious functions tracked by Biofeedback therapy are:

  • Breathing rhythm
  • Heartbeat rhythm
  • Skin temperature
  • Blood pressure
  • Profuse perspiration
  • Muscle contractions

These subconscious functions are usually elevated when one has taken alcohol or drugs. They can be effectively reduced using the biofeedback technique.

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 will know that they need to find a way of relaxing in case they notice that the light is pulsing too rapidly. The rate of blood pumping by the heart will determine the speed of the pulse on this machine.
