Caron Treatment Centers will explore the potential benefits of neurotherapy for some of its patients, entering into an agreement that will launch a pilot program at its Caron Renaissance and Caron Ocean Drive facilities in South Florida next month.
The announcement of the project came last week from CNS-Wellness, Inc., a Tampa, Fla-based cognitive science clinic business that employs brain mapping, stimulation and feedback to treat organic brain disorders, behavioral health issues and developmental disorders.
Caron did not issue an official statement on the initiative, although the CNS-Wellness news release included this comment from Caron Renaissance executive director Sid Goodman: “The addition of a neuro-rehabilitation program for Caron Renaissance has been a component of a complete program of recovery that we have wanted to include for some time now.”
CNS-Wellness is a subsidiary of Wellness Center USA, Inc., a company that focuses on mind-body innovations and also has business units that market medical devices and nutritional supplements.
The statement announcing the initiative suggests that the project with Caron represents a new stage of development for CNS’s brain-based approach to assessment and for its neurotherapy modalities, which include neurofeedback and transcranial direct current stimulation. The CNS website’s homepage does not currently list addictions among the disorders that the company’s programs address.
