MyBrainSolutions - Feature Story - June 13, 2016
MyBrainSolutions has enabled to both assess and treat the cognitive deficits of individuals presenting for treatment. MBS is an integrated package that within 45 minutes yields a report of cognitive, emotional, and behavioral function as well as a prescription for cognitive training using exercises built into the platform. In addition to the initial assessment and prescribed cognitive training protocol is the capability of the platform to assess progress at various time points and adjust training to fit the patient’s cognitive status.
Although not anticipated, we find our patients to be particularly interested in the outcome of the assessment. When they receive quantifiable information that that their cognitive, emotional, and/or behavioral function has improved as a result to their training, with a smile of their face, they are quick to share their results with others. In regards to the training component of MBS, patients have noted the ease of use of the platform as well as the challenge of their individualized exercise prescription. Of interest is the fact that our patients are showing the most significant gains in the third month of training.
In short, My Brain Solutions plays a crucial role in The Synapse System method of care. It has enabled our program to function at the leading edge of addiction treatment and it has provided our patients with tools to strengthen their recovery and reduce the risk of relapse.
