Addiction Treatment: Non 12 Step, Non AA, Medical Model. Presented by the American Health Journal.


Addiction Treatment: Non 12 Step, Non AA, Medical Model. Presented by The American Health Journal. – **THIS TREATMENT AVAILABLE AT THE BRAIN TREATMENT CENTER** http http Brookside Institute offers treatment protocol that combines the latest in neuroscience (TMS Neurofeedback), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and medicine to treat addiction and co-occurring disorders (dual diagnosis). Unlike other treatment centers that may offer “non 12 step programs” the Brookside Recovery Protocol ™ is a science-based, medical model that applies over twenty years of scientific research to provide a comprehensive treatment for addiction. Although other treatment programs may claim to be non 12 step, none provide the same level of care and innovative approach to addiction as Brooksides individualized, all-inclusive treatment protocol. Many programs have recently jumped on the non 12 step trend; however, Brookside Institute is the pioneer in science-based, medical model treatment for addiction and has always used this model to treat addiction. At the Neuroscience Center we use TMS and Neurofeedback as treatment. Magno-EEG Resonant Therapy (MERT) is an innovative treatment procedure using a noninvasive electromagnetic resonant process to tune up or down specific brainwaves. This is a refined process of the traditional Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) that is unique to Brookside Institute NeuroScience Center. Unlike TMS, MERT is precisely calculated based on the individuals electroencephalography (EEG) to deliver the perfect combination

    These doctors have no idea about? the real cure for addiction and all disease. Vitamin C IV therapy is the only way to get rid of all drugs quickly, and live a sober life. I just started my treatment after years of methadone use. Your body needs vitamin C every 6 hours, and other vitamins and minerals. Lypospheric vitamin C is the best way to absorb C. Addiction is caused by deffetiancy of nutrients. Research vitamin therapy please, it’s the cure we are all looking for!

    The ease of availability can be a big trigger for someone who has a behavioral addiction.? That’s what makes something like computer or internet addiction so difficult, because for the most part in our modern society, most people live with or occasionally use a computer or the internet.

    Disease mongering is the practice of widening the diagnostic boundaries of illnesses, and promoting public awareness of such, in order to expand the markets for? those who sell and deliver treatments, which may include pharmaceutical companies, physicians, and other professional or consumer organizations.

    The only thing that I did to treat myself of pornography addiction, which I was addicted for over 7 years,? was to withdraw from it completely. I have now been ‘sober’ for 15 weeks now, and I hope to continue that. Good luck to you all that are withdrawing from pornography.

    “I’m glad I’m? not the only one speaking against this trend.”

    Unfortunately, within the lay community, we are amongst the very few…

    Within academic circles,as you can see in this video, we would be amongst more numerous company – but still in the minority…

    Nonetheless, I have faith in human rationality and expect that the “understanding” of addictive behaviour at this point in time will be looked back upon by our? future successors as a quaint little period of folk science…

  • Hammersley1967 says:


    “I think that’s why the usual attempt by addicts to rationalize their use, because they don’t like to give up their major source of pleasure and comfort, has been relabeled as “denial” to make it look as though they? can’t even recognize what’s going on.”


    This is the central pitfall of the 12 step and biomedical models…

    It sets the problem in concrete and creates rationalisations for continued use…

  • prschuster says:

    Hammersley 1967, I’ve noticed that you post regularily on these videos about addiction to criticize 12 step programs and the medical model of addiction. This trend of medicalizing? every social problem under the sun really irritates me and the disease model is about the worst example of this. I’m glad I’m not the only one speaking against this trend.

  • prschuster says:

    OK, so we basically agree that there is an attempt to make unwarranted connections between addictive behavior, emotional problems associated with addiction & brain functioning (so called “biopsychosocial disease” of addiction). I think that’s why the usual attempt by addicts to rationalize their use, because they don’t like to give up their major source of pleasure and comfort, has been relabeled as “denial” to make it look as though they can’t even recognize what’s going on.?

    “It starts with talk of neural wiring and brain chemistry, and then it takes an illogical leap into the realm of psychology”

    I agree, except that I think that it works in reverse to this.

    It starts with the behaviour, then moves to the? psycho-emotional (sound reasoning), and THEN makes the illogical (and unfounded) leap to the neuro-pathological.

    I agree that it is the medicalising (pathologising) of the emotional/behavioural dimension of the human condition that is problematic.

  • prschuster says:

    My point about the disease model is precisely what you’re talking about. It starts with talk of neural wiring and? brain chemistry, and then it takes an illogical leap into the realm of psychology as it tries to connect the psychodynamics with the physical changes in the brain. It treats the emotional and compulsive aspects of addiction as if they were hardwired into the brain. That’s why ASAM tries to compare addiction with schizophrenia or parkinson’s. We really agree here.

  • Hammersley1967 says:



    It is not the PSYCHO-logising of the problem that leads to chronic, pathological conceptions of the problem.

    It is the PHYSIO-pathologising of the problem that leads to these erroneous and self defeating conceptions of, and approaches to, the problem.

    See, I disagree that the “disease” model? advocates “thought disorder” – it is about the pathophysical.

    Pathophysiology is a materialist, “hardwired” phenomenon…

    Psychopathology is a plastic, fluid and changing dimension…
