Dependencies and Addictions


The Monterey Center of Alameda – We specialize in post-withdrawal detox, life coaching and biofeedback programs to address drugs, alcohol, food, gambling addictions, dependencies, and more. Whether prescription or recreational drugs, shopping, smart phones or Netflix, one is likely to have their own, personal fall-back activity(s) to relieve the pain of the instant.  In this day and age, it is a challenge to find someone who is not addicted to something. 

We can depend upon these escapes to get through those “uncomfortable moments” or to “reward” the hard efforts of the day.  We are looking for a “buzz” to feel good; a mood enhancement; or simply Relief.  Soon enough, those alluring escapes for mind and body can get out of control.  The problem is:  it costs us time, money, clear thinking and health.  Intoxication gives a quick fix, but also a breakdown of mind, body and spirit, in the process.  

Sobering to the moment of clarity that these dependencies are more destructive than constructive to survival, you may now be ready to do something about getting clean and putting your life back together. Maybe you’ve tried before with one of those anonymous groups and it worked for a while and actually did well for you.  Sometimes, however, we either fall off the wagon or are in a stable place, but simply are ready to take the next step towards additional accomplishment in self improvement. 

A Detoxification is essential if you are looking at a chemical dependency.  Or, regarding other habitual behavior,  then psychebiofeedback  would be appropriately preferred, with the possibility of including neurofeedback, if indicated.

Understanding Withdrawal

Withdrawal from chemical dependency actually takes place in stages.  The first stage of withdrawal is the weaning off from the substance. This is called, Stage One.  Stage One is more safely accomplished under medical supervision at a facility that accommodate overnight stays. Most Stage One detox’s can take about two weeks, often times, many more.  Dramatic “cold turkey” withdrawal can be extremely hazardous, even lethal, if attempted without proper medical supervision. TMC does not accept emergency cases, as there is no MD on staff and presently we are not set up for any overnight accommodations presently.

TMC’s Stage Two Detox, on the other hand, focuses on getting the chemical residues out of the body.  The mind and body can continue to be affected, long after “regular” ingestion of the toxins has ceased.  All that is required to start Stage Two Detox is a medical physical with a written waiver to advance onto this program. For more information on how we handle the material aspects of addiction, once the individual is complete on their Stage One, go to: Detox Purification.

Stage Three Detox would be addressing the emotional issues that are connected to the addiction and is addressed via our unique psychebiofeedback programs.

Results from our program are notable and recidivism rates are extremely low with this three-pronged approach.
