Biofeedback Therapy works on helping the substance abuser consciously take charge of their mind and body functions.

There are many functions in our body that occur involuntarily. One can go into a feeling of despair when they are nervous and their body responds differently. Biofeedback medicine allows observing the body's involuntary reactions to emotional and physical stress.
Biofeedback medicine allows to track such unconscious bodily activities as:
Blood pressure level
Contraction of muscles
When a person uses drugs or alcohol, they can experience more physical stress and the rate of some involuntary responses may increase. They can be effectively reduced using the biofeedback technique.
The patient can read for themselves the results produced by the Biofeedback machines. The displays of these machines record all the responses such as heart rate and blood pressure in charts and pulses. The patient needs to be calm and relax when the pulse on the machine shows that the heart rate is faster than normal. As soon as the patient calms down, the wave on the screen will move less fast in response.
A practice of tranquil focusing attention aimed at becoming free from stressful emotions and ideas.
When a person is tense, their muscles may also tense up and this exercise teaches them how to relax the muscles from one part of the body to the next.
A technique releasing tension from the body and brain - guiding mind to good, peaceful pictures and events.
