Quantitative EEG is a brain mapping technology that can be used to diagnose and monitor the progression of mental health conditions, including substance use disorder. The technology began to be used in the late 1990s for substance use disorder to enhance the diagnosis and treatment of the condition. 

Applying Quantitative EEG to Substance Use Disorder

Chronic drug and alcohol abuse that coincides with substance use disorder does alter brain activity. Different substances affect the brain differently, and long-term substance use disorder can have permanent consequences if left untreated. With quantitative EEG, doctors, therapists, and other mental health professionals can reliably diagnose substance use disorder with data

The software can also be used throughout treatment to assess how the brain is responding to medications and other treatments. Quantitative EEG mapping will pick up on these brain changes including changes in the way the individual’s brain perceives the world around them when detoxing, during rehabilitation, and beyond into sober living. 

Quantitative EEG in Conjunction with Other Tools

A major component of treatment for substance use disorder is the detox process. The best way to detox is under medical supervision with doctors to prescribe medications that make the process safer and more comfortable. Solution Based Treatment offers GeneSight testing, which is a unique testing process that enables doctors and care providers to identify medications that will work best for clients depending on their genetic makeup.

When used in conjunction, quantitative EEG and GeneSight testing allows doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, and other care providers to view a complete picture of what is going on in a client’s brain. 

Quantitative EEG and GeneSight testing are also valuable when it comes to dual-diagnosis and treatment. Care providers can see exactly what brain activity is occurring to draw conclusions on what may be co-occurring.
