Hypnosis has been successfully used for drug and alcohol abuse and addiction in association with other forms of treatment. The underlying causes of alcoholism and drug abuse are deeply rooted in the subconscious mind, are very complex, and can include the devaluation of the self (low self-esteem, self-confidence, self-love and self-worth), depression, anxiety, guilt, self-sabotage issues, relationship problems, etc.
Dr. Gabor’s complementary program for alcohol, drug abuse and addiction includes Medical Hypnotherapy, NLP, Guided Imagery, Regression Therapy (Age Regression and Past Life Regression Therapy and Analysis), as powerful tools for strengthening the determination to undergo treatment and removing the urge for drinking or taking recreational drugs. These powerful tools help identify and remove the real root cause (the subconscious root causes) of the alcohol or drug abuse or addiction. This psychological program also helps the client overcome depression, anxiety and sleep disorders, and become mentally and emotionally balanced by optimizing the conscious and subconscious programs of thinking. It helps the client create a healthy relationship with himself/ herself, gain self-confidence, self-respect and a positive and optimistic outlook on life.
According to studies conduced at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College in London, suggestions given to people in a hypnotic state produce actions that are the same type of actions that would have resulted from more long term conditioning and practice.
In a research study on hypnosis for relapse prevention with chronic drug & alcohol abusers, individuals who used hypnosis 3 to 5 times a week, who were seen at their 7 week follow up, reported the highest level of self-esteem and serenity, and the lowest level of anger and impulsivity in comparison to the minimal practice and group control.
Hypnosis significantly affects the activity in a part of the brain that controls higher levels of executive functions. “This explains why under Hypnosis people can do outrageous things that ordinarily they wouldn’t dream of doing” said John Gruzelier, research psychologist at Imperial College in London.
Just like many other people, actor Aron Eckhart changed his life by using hypnosis to give up smoking and alcohol.
Simply trying to resist drugs and alcohol is extremely difficult. What is needed is a real change in the conscious and subconscious belief systems that would change the attitude toward drugs or alcohol. Medical Hypnotherapy is very effective for escaping from the drug and alcohol trap because it helps people make those changes in the subconscious beliefs to get rid of the drive that keeps pushing them to drink alcohol or do recreational drugs.
