What is Biosound Therapy for Addiction?

Think of how you feel when you hear your favorite song. There are certain vibrations and sounds that inspire feelings of safety, comfort, support, and self-control. Biosound therapy focuses on making you feel calm, relaxed, and happy, with audio frequencies that sync with physical vibrations that mimic these pleasant circumstances. Seeking treatment for addiction can be intimidating and uncomfortable. Introducing biosound into your rehabilitation program will only benefit you on your path of success and recovery. 

Biosound therapy is particularly beneficial for coping with anxiety and depression. When cortisol levels drop and the heartbeat becomes slow and rhythmic in this environment, feelings of overwhelming anxiety and tension are no longer fed. Now your body reacts accordingly, separating you from even the physical patterns of anxious behavior.  

What is Biosound Therapy?

Biosound therapy is a type of therapy that involves sitting in a specialized chair and being covered by a blanket. This chair is responsible for sending subtle vibrations to various parts of the body using different beats and timings to encourage relaxation. 

After you’re lying comfortable and covered, you are exposed to various vibrational patterns. Binaural audio is then added in to reinforce these feelings, mirroring the theta or lo-alpha brain waves that are present when a person is relaxed and focused. This creates an experience that you can feel and hear simultaneously. 

How Does Biosound Therapy Work?

This sound therapy can help you to relax your nervous system and to allow you to fall into a deep state of relaxation. When that takes place, your heartbeat will slow and cortisol levels drop, reducing stress.

The Body’s Reaction to Sounds and Vibrations

Sounds can deeply affect a person. For instance, a sharp note can scare you, or the sound of rain can lull you to sleep. Think of the last time you heard a song you love in your car or over a loudspeaker. You probably instantly recognized it and your feelings were altered leading you to feel happy, more energetic, or even inspired. 

Picture watching a scary movie, how that feeling of fear and anticipation builds before the scene enacts its thrilling and frightening moment. This function of sound triggers emotional states that can be controlled with certain kinds of therapies. Biosound therapy is the most up-to-date and innovative treatment to utilize these senses.

Frequency Waves and the Brain

The biosound experience uses beats and vibrations in a way that influences the way you interpret the thoughts you think or the feelings you feel. There are five primary brain waves studied that provide data to improve the results of biosound therapy. These include:

It’s natural for the body to react to low-frequency vibrations and respond with relaxation. Alternatively, high-frequency vibrations provide the opposite, inducing emotions of increased concentration or even elevated heart rates. 

Frequency Waves and Biosound Therapy

Biosound therapy creates binaural beats that induce theta-level meditative states. Typically, in this state, the mind moves into the most easily influenced state of being, known as theta. Theta waves are where the brain is most susceptible to receive positive affirmations through tones and physical, yet gentle, suggestion. 

Biosound therapy utilizes the natural progression of the pattern exhibited by the brain and then manipulates the process, creating patterns in the rhythm of heartbeats that can help synchronize a patient’s body and nervous system. Easing you into a state of theta, biosound therapy creates a feeling of relaxation that allows the body to recover. Additionally, it provides positive affirmations that will adjust unhealthy thinking patterns. Those involved in this process may be more mindful or aware of their own bodies during and after the experience. 

Benefits of Biosound Therapies for Addiction Recovery Patients

The goal of biosound therapy is to use precise and synchronized beats of low frequencies to help calm the body and mind, breaking apart old cycles of negative thoughts and self-doubt. This targeted treatment is common among those who seek relief when suffering from anxiety, depression and other repetitive illnesses that further influence addiction. 

During treatment, the biosound technology helps a person switch from a negative emotional state to one of calm or positivity within each session. This can help patients, particularly those participating in residential drug addiction programs, by providing the benefit of learning to manage their emotions through this technique. 

How Long Does it Take for Biosound Therapy to Work?

After even just a few sessions, you may find yourself thinking differently throughout your day-to-day life. As the positive affirmations of biosound treatment resonate within consciousness, you will find yourself breaking apart negative thought patterns that may have previously led to dangerous behavior or overwhelming emotions. 

When Using Biosound is Most Beneficial

Biosound therapy can also help assist patients who are going through detoxification to relax and feel less pain. Detox, being one of the most difficult, scary, and sensitive hurdles to overcome, can be eased using vibrational sound therapy. This allows patients to find a safe space away from the challenges in the past or up ahead, without interfering with the rehabilitation and recovery process. 

Participating in biosound treatment has been helpful in preventing hopelessness that leads to early discharges of patients. Also, many times calming vibrational influence aids in preventing issues when emotions are heightened during crisis interventions. 

Biosound Therapy to Help Treat Low Moods, Depression, and Anxiety

Biosound therapy is also ideal for training the brain to avoid a negative mindset. The process of biosound therapy is expertly designed to help change your patterns of thought and reaction, making it easier to remain more calm, relaxed, and at peace when facing uncomfortable situations. The calming effect that biosound therapy provides can be extremely beneficial to those that suffer from anxiety, depression, or overall low moods. 

Biosound also allows our patients the much-needed time to relax and reflect. Having a safe and comfortable space can help anyone separate themselves from the stress of that day’s activities. By allowing this time for yourself, many find themselves developing better decision-making skills and utilizing healthy coping mechanisms when faced with previous overwhelming events. 

This type of therapy has been successful in relieving symptoms of mental illness after treatment. Some examples that have been addressed are as follows:

Part of the benefit of biosound therapy is that it allows patients to become mindful of their own bodies. Relaxing meditations and positive healing affirmations replace overthinking and doubt, shifting the focus away from pain or stress.

How Biosound Therapy Can Help a Dual Diagnosis 

Those suffering from a substance use disorder may likely simultaneously suffer from a mental illness. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), individuals with a substance use disorder are 50% more likely to develop a mental illness. In turn, those with a mental health disorder are 50% more likely to suffer from a substance use disorder. This chance increases with certain types of severe mental illnesses, like personality disorders. 

Using biosound is a noninvasive way to help people tackle both a mental illness and a substance use disorder. When people suffer from two types of health disorders at the same time, it’s a dual diagnosis. Other names for this include comorbidity and co-occurring disorder. Coastal Detox commonly utilizes biosound to help people with substance use and these co-occurring mental illnesses: 

Biosound Therapy for Depression and Addiction 

Humans experience a wide range of emotions in their lives. Happiness, anger, and sadness all encompass the human experience. Yet, when feelings of sadness or apathy dwell too long in a person’s life, they may be suffering from depression. 

Depression, clinically called major depressive disorder, is a mental illness that plagues many individuals who also suffer from a substance use disorder. Some cases of depression can be mild, but mild cases can turn into severe mental illnesses. This is more likely in the case of those struggling with an addiction as regular substance use impedes normal brain chemistry. 

People who experience these symptoms for more than two weeks may have major depressive disorder: 

There are different types of depression. One form of depression, seasonal affective disorder, typically comes about during the winter months where there is a lack of sun. Another form comes after pregnancy (postpartum depression). Regardless of the type of scenario, a co-occurring disorder of substance abuse and depression are serious, needing immediate medical attention before it gets worse. Biosound in tandem with other types of holistic therapies can help people regain mental stability in their lives. 

Biosound Therapy for Anxiety and Addiction 

Anxiety disorders are one of the leading forms of mental illness in the world. Like any other emotion, anxiety can often be a good feeling in that it alerts the mind and body that there is an issue at hand. That said, it needs to be proportional to the issue at hand for it to be healthy. 

When the level of someone’s anxiety isn’t proportional to the situation at hand for an extended period of time, it might be an anxiety disorder. People with an anxiety disorder may turn to drugs and alcohol to help them relax without realizing the long-term damage it will have on their mental health. Different types of anxiety disorders that commonly co-occur with addiction include: 

Biosound is particularly helpful for those suffering from a substance use disorder and anxiety because it relies on theta waves. Since theta waves encourage the mind to relax and go into a meditative state, it can be of great help to this type of dual diagnosis. 

Personality Disorders and Biosound Therapy for Addiction 

A person’s personality lasts over their entire life. While ideas, beliefs, values, and skills change (including social skills), someone’s personality always stays the same—unless they suffer from a personality disorder. Individuals suffering from a personality disorder will have extreme changes in their personalities that deviate from what’s accepted by society. 

The American Psychological Association (APA) writes that someone suffers from a personality disorder when they meet the following criteria in two or more areas: 

There are 10 different types of personality disorders, and at times, a person can suffer from more than one at the same time. People suffering from a personality disorder have an increased chance of developing a dual diagnosis than the average person. A part of this stems from the fact that those with a personality disorder typically engage in frequent risky behavior. One study that researched individuals suffering from addiction in an outpatient setting found that 62% of them were suffering from a personality disorder. 

As personality disorders are serious mental illnesses, biosound therapy alone can’t help. With this in mind, it still acts as an effective complementary therapy to any other treatments. Both personality disorders and substance use disorders are lifelong in the sense that they must be monitored for life; however, they can be managed with the right help and medication. 

Eating Disorders, Addiction, and Biosound Therapy 

Individuals with a warped sense of their image and/or a troubled relationship with eating suffer from an eating disorder. Eating disorders can manifest in individuals of any size or age, contrary to how the media may portray this type of mental illness. People with an eating disorder may starve themselves because they feel as if they are overweight or feel terrible after eating large amounts of food. 

The shame that comes with eating disorders may push them to seek solace from drugs and alcohol. In such cases, a substance use disorder may develop as a result. Biosound treatment can help individuals suffering from this dual diagnosis take their minds off of the self-destructive thoughts they embody. In time, they can manage negative thoughts without reacting to them. 

Biosound Therapy Continued Use Benefits

As patients explore the biosound treatment experience, it is possible you may discover music and vibrational therapy not only enhances your rehabilitation and recovery progress but that it also may benefit all areas of your life. With that in mind, it is not uncommon for participants to establish their own programs and systems for biosound therapy that can be performed within their own homes. 

By integrating biosound into your daily life, you allow yourself the time to step away from everyday stress or anxiety at your own leisure when the time is convenient for you. This gives you more time to focus on recovery and prevent thoughts of relapse in times where physical or emotional triggers are present. Biosound music and sound waves can be used as incredible tools for healing the body and mind.

What Happens After Biosound Therapy is Over?

After a biofeedback session, patients can move onto what is known as music therapy. This therapy uses vibrations and sound frequencies to promote healing, relaxing meditations, and so on. Once a patient’s mind falls into the theta state, it’s possible to introduce positive affirmations and meditations that can alter thinking and encourage healing within all areas of a person’s overall life.

Real Client Testimonials

  • Before coming to coastal I was hopeless, helpless, and my family wanted nothing to do with me. It wasn’t the first detox I’d ever been to, but it was the only one who showed me so much love and compassion. They gave me hope. It’s hard to put into words the amount of gratitude I have for this facility. The employees were my family when I had none. The staff went out of their way to make sure not only were my physical needs taken care of, but my emotional needs as well. From the first phone call prior to admission, to helping me set up continuing care, they never missed a beat. Even going as far as to help me with my legal issues via Zoom court. This isn’t just a detox, they are the family I never had. All of the techs, especially Karen, are phenomenal. They will take the time to listen to you, laugh, and cry(if needed) with you. If you are reading this and you or your loved one is suffering like I was, go to Coastal Detox. The level of care is more than I could ever put into a review. It wasn’t the first detox I’d been to, but it has been my last; I owe them everything I have today, including my life.

  • Had a really good experience at Coastal. The staff really went above and beyond in helping me get in and gave me the respect l, space and care I needed after I first got there. As I started to fell better they encouraged me to take part in groups which helped get me out of my head and bring positivity and health to my thinking. They had a great massage therapist, who came daily and it was evident the nursing staff genuinely cared. Got to know some of the staff as well and I’m grateful for the cooks Joe and Chris. Those guys literally made us sirloins and pork chops for dinner. Also I gotta thank Chris and Chris for helping me get in and setting me up with a transition plan. Real grateful for that help, I’m not sure if it’s management intention to hire guys named Chris but they got a good thing going there. Overall, I’m clean and sober today and walking it out. Coastal gave me a base that set me up for the success that I’m walking in today

  • My family is very thankful for Coastal Detox. They have went above and beyond for my son a few times. Unfortunately he has needed their help more than once and they have ever turned their back on him, even when he was at his worst. Jeannie and Chris have been amazing and kept me informed through the entire process. They truly care about the addict and want to help them especially when it would be easy to give up on them. I had many detox facilities be rude and uncaring to me when I was searching for help for my son, but Coastal never did that to us. I don't know the names of all the team members that have helped my son but I know their are many and y'all are angels!! One day we will be able to pay it forward and help someone as you have helped us. Thank you for all you do!!

  • Can not say enough nice things about Coastal Detox & staff. Family member was there, told me five stars for the facility & all whom she interacted with. Said the facilities, ambience..., cleanliness, grounds, food, (think their chef is five stars), were all top shelf. All I interacted with personally & on the phone were patient, professional, responsive & caring. Kudos to so many: Jeannie Jones, Clinical Director whom I spent the most face to face time with: great oversight, patience & follow thru. Raquel Barker, Therapist was so understanding & on spot with her assessments/care. Kris Garrigus Admissions Director, another Coastal professional whom I cannot say enough nice things about, always so patient & responsive to my probably too frequent inquires. Not to be forgotten is Judy Tucker, Director of Operations she too so patiently "put up with me"
    I highly recommend Coastal Detox
