Amen Addiction






The Meehl Foundation is a trained Amen Addiction Treatment Program.  Within our 90 day program is 10 weeks of Amen Brain Health.  Clients learn the Six different types of addiction behavior through comprehensive testing and SPECT images and which groups they may fall into.  We believe in treating the underlying mental disorder.

“According to SAMHSA’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), 23.2 million persons (9.4 percent of the U.S. population) aged 12 or older needed treatment for an illicit drug or alcohol use problem in 2007. Of these individuals, 2.4 million (10.4 percent of those who needed treatment) received treatment at a specialty facility (i.e., hospital, drug or alcohol rehabilitation or mental health center). Thus, 20.8 million persons (8.4 percent of the population aged 12 or older) needed treatment for an illicit drug or alcohol use problem but did not receive it.”

Our clients have usually been in several treatment programs before they come to us (usually 5 or 6) Most treatment programs focus on abstinence and the 12-steps, but not on the underlying issue of addiction, trying to feel better emotionally.  Poor brain chemistry, such as anxiety or depression leads to addiction.  Human being are driven by pain or pleasure.  If you are in emotional pain you will do what-ever it takes to fix it.  Clients that have chronic depression tend to use Methanphitomenes or Cocaine.  Clients that are driven by anxiety use alcohol and clients that are up and down emotionally such as in the conditions of Bipolar Disorder or PTSD use marijuana to feel stable.

We address these issues with medication, supplements and with therapy: 5 hours per day of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy(DBT), REBT, Self-Esteem work, 12-Step, and Amen Brain Health.

You do not have to white-knuckle your recovery any more.

Please consider going to the Amen Questionaire and take the test.  It cost you nothing and we do not ask for your email or any personal information.  It is free.  Then decide if the results are a fit for you.
