am writing to inform you of the results of our pilot project utilizing the
Alpha-Stim to assist people in recovery from drug and alcohol abuse.
The results were overwhelmingly positive. We administered twenty-five,
one-hour sessions to fifteen volunteers in two San Diego recovery homes.
Time in recovery before treatment ranged from several days to seven months.
Participants were all male and about half were Hispanic.
The mid and post-test scores showed significant and dramatic improvements.
Of course, long-term follow-up is necessary.
I have enclosed a copy of a graph of the group average scores in depression
reduction utilizing the Beck Depression Inventory, which demonstrates
extremely positive effects after only twelve (12) sessions (midpoint).
On our other tests, the Multiple Affect Adjective Checklist and the Personal
Orientation Inventory, participants evidenced similar significant decreases
in anxiety and hostility, (these were often reduced to zero) and significant
increases in self-worth, feeling-expression, and capacity for intimate
Verbal feedback was equally exciting. One participant said afterwards,
"something inside me has shifted and I just know I'm never going to take
another drink of alcohol again." Another said, "I've been sober for about 75
days, but it feels like I've been sober for years."
The Alpha-Stim was a vital part of all this. Participants eagerly looked
forward to using it, and expressed their appreciation from having benefited
Thank you very much for making it available to us. Our first weekend seminar
is scheduled for September 11 & 12. I'll be in touch.
