BrainRecovery Program Framework

By Curtis Cripe, PhD
Overall, a neuroengineering approach to solving brain-based behavior issues is categorized as a cognitive remediation technique that uses modern applied neuroscience methods. The general analysis and remediation methods have evolved and developed over the last thirty years as a practical application to many clinical problems that did not respond successfully to conventional treatment methods.
The approach works with most brain based dysfunctions. The data collection is part of NeuroEval™ and the analysis approach is called NeuroCodeX®, while the remediation technique is called NeuroCoach®. The combined data collection, analysis and remediation method, when applied to substance abuse recovery, is called the BrainRecovery Program.
The BrainRecovery program was designed to accommodate multiple delivery options that range from inpatient recovery centers, private outpatient clinics, and in the privacy of one’s home using a remote TeleHealth delivery format. Presently, the program is located in select inpatient recovery centers, private outpatient clinics and remotely in the client’s home setting in conjunction with one of our staff.

    I am very intrigued by this process. It appears that there is not just a “simple” one answer to all problems dealing with addiction. Would this process also work with eating disorders?

    You are correct. There usually isn’t a simple “one-size-fits-all” solution to very complex issues.
    In answer to your question if this program would work with eating disorders, the answer is, yes. It works very effectively with eating disorders. Eating disorder dysfunctions are very similar to addiction disorders in that the thinking part of the brain (the part of the brain that allows us to exert control) is weakly connected to the part of the brain that produces impulses (good or bad) and results in difficulty in exercising one’s volitional will-power. One of the major goals of this program is to help folks with eating disorder restore proper balance between brain systems so that a person can exercise proper decision making.
