Identify and Defeat the Patterns of Addiction in Marietta
Brain-mapping is one of our holistic program components at Metro Atlanta Treatment. Brain-mapping uses neurofeedback, a.k.a. EEG biofeedback, in a state-of-the-art, noninvasive way to visualize the thoughts and behaviors associated with addiction. By focusing in on visual patterns, our team can help you shift your negative thinking and create healthier thoughts and brain waves.
What Is Brain Mapping?
Brain-mapping is a simple, science-based method for teaching the brain how to function more efficiently. Our brains create 4 divisions of electrical impulses called “frequency bands”:
These frequency bands show which areas of our brains are active, so we can highlight which part of the brain we should be using when we are indulging in bad behavior. Brain-mapping identifies which bands our brains are using for addiction-related thinking, so we can stop the patterns of addiction in their tracks.
How Does Brain Mapping Work?
At Metro Atlanta Treatment, in Marietta, GA, brain-mapping sessions can show you the physical impact the disease of addiction has had on your brain. From there, our experienced staff can help you retrain it.
During a brain-mapping session, we place electrodes on your scalp. We then attach the electrodes to a monitor that will translate your brainwave information into images. We will also show you how to engage and control your different frequency bands. This will allow us to work together, gather useful information, optimize your addiction recovery, and support your mental health.

The disease of addiction draws strength from isolation, so we believe we need to combat it with connectivity! Fostering healthy relationships is a crucial part of recovery that can come difficultly to someone fresh in recovery. At Metro Atlanta Treatment, we want to connect with you and help you to connect with others.
The process of recovery requires you to make a great deal of changes. This demands everyone involved enter this experience with the willingness to try something new. We leave fear and a biased attitude at the door, with an understanding that each individual is in need of something different to succeed.
Getting sober does not mean life becomes stale. We practice having enjoyment on your journey through recreation, discovery, and entertainment. We’ve found incorporating this fundamental piece into the therapeutic process is a breath of fresh and fun air to the recovering individual!
It has been said that knowledge is power. In your battle with the disease of addiction, having an understanding of what you’re experiencing gives you the potential to gain back some of the power you’ve been stripped of. We want to create awareness of the pitfalls, coping mechanisms, tools and resources you need to fight back with competency.
