Addictions are traditionally sorted in two large categoria: chemical, such as alcoholic addiction, and non-chemical, such as addiction to gambling.
An effective method of psychological rehabilitation for addiction of all kinds is non-directive hypnotherapy, combined with neurofeedbak.
In a trance state the Client is capable of finding positive life goals, and pursuing those is perceived as more desireble than addictive behaviour.
The Client sees what changes when those desired goals are already achieved, and he comes to beleive in his or her ability ability to change his/her life and obtain a strong motivation to change lifestyle.
Neurofeedback therapy teaches the Client to find and maintain a pleasant emotional state without the object of dependance.
An effective elimination of dependance takes 20 sessions of neurofeedbak, with proven efficasy of 80% of all cases. (With modified Peniston-Kukovsky Protocol that we use)
