Nationally Certified Brain Health Coach (NCBHC)
Did you know that the success rate of traditional addiction treatment is less than 5%? This is about the same success rate of people who spontaneously quit using on their own. Traditional treatment is a dismal failure and is missing a key component…brain health recovery. If you have clients that continue to struggle with mental health and addiction despite your best efforts in teaching them coping strategies and setting goals this is the course for you! Help your clients succeed in sobriety by including brain health in your strategies. The need to ‘white knuckle’ their way through a craving or urge is over! People cannot talk their way into a healthy brain when it has been hijacked by chemicals and yet we expect them to do just that! That is all changing and we can help!

Addictions of every kind create massive changes to your chemical messengers (neurotransmitters) that not only affect you both physically and emotionally but also make the potential for relapse greater. Many people discuss neurotransmitters such as dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, and GABA but do not offer solutions to these imbalances. We will teach you the key neurotransmitters that the brain needs to become balanced and return to homeostasis. We will also teach you how to assess for neurotransmitter imbalance and how to correct it with nutrients, amino acids, essential oils and the basics of gut health. Understanding How Addiction Affects the Brain is important in helping to recovery from drug and alcohol use.
How addiction affects the brain
Addiction affects the brain in many different ways. A lot of the neurotransmitters can be damaged from specific types of drug use including methamphetamine, heroin, and crack cocaine. Even alcohol can damage the receptors in the brain and drop the dopamine and serotonin levels necessary for healthy brain function. We will cover this and more in our certified brain health training class.
Brain health through neurotransmitter balance is the missing component to long-lasting recovery. A tremendous amount of research supports neurotransmitter repair in the addiction recovery process. Your clients will no longer have to white-knuckle their way through recovery. Instead, they will be able to sustain recovery and have an improved mood at the same time.
