Sever Addiction and HBOT

Drugs and Alcohol are brain depressants that push down the spring. They suppress your brain’s production of neurotransmitters like noradrenaline. When you stop using drugs or alcohol it’s like taking the weight off the spring, and your brain rebounds by producing a surge of adrenaline that causes withdrawal symptoms.

Every drug is different. Some drugs produce significant physical withdrawal (alcohol, opiates, and tranquilizers). Some drugs produce little physical withdrawal, but more emotional withdrawal (cocaine, marijuana, and ecstasy). Every person’s physical withdrawal pattern is also different. You may experience little physical withdrawal. But that doesn’t mean that you’re Injured Brainnot addicted, instead you may experience more emotional withdrawal.

Injured Brain

Studies show that long-term substance abuse and sometimes even long term use of prescribed pain medications, can cause damage to the cells in the brain, especially in the fontal lobe where strategic thinking (decision making) takes place.  These damaged tissues and cells in the brain are not getting enough blood flow to heal properly. The damaged cells are unable to detoxify properly leaving everything functioning at a slower pace. This is where Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy comes in.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can help open up the circulation into damaged tissues and normalize various enzyme systems that help with the detoxification process in cells throughout the body.  A metabolically healthy cell will then be able to participate in the required chemical steps to detox the brain and help reduce cravings.
