SAN FRANCISCO and LOUISVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Brain Resource, Inc. and Cornerstone of Recovery today announced a new partnership to offer brain health tools in addiction recovery programs sponsored by Cornerstone.
Under the agreement, Cornerstone will utilize innovative neurocognitive assessments and tools including MyBrainSolutions-Clinical, which combines Brain Resource's MyBrainSolutions and WebNeuro products.
MyBrainSolutions-Clinical will help assess patients' cognitive and emotional capacities, and offer online brain exercises to enhance thinking, self-regulation and personal resiliency. These new neuroscientific approaches will be integrated into Cornerstone of Recovery's already successful program of group and family therapy, daily 12-step groups, educational programs, leisure group activities and aftercare services.
"Numerous studies have suggested cognitive training can improve brain processing deficits associated with substance abuse conditions. Our tools will work hand-in-hand with the Cornerstone of Recovery Program to address cognitive aspects of an individual's recovery," said Gregory A. Bayer, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Brain Resource, Inc.
"Brain Resource is excited to partner with Cornerstone of Recovery as our assessment and personalized online cognitive training programs will assist patients in reestablishing confidence in their cognitive skills, promote stress reduction and improve resiliency," said Bayer.
Dan Caldwell, Cornerstone of Recovery's CEO, says, "We are always looking for tools and methods that demonstrate to our patients that there are effective alternatives to relying on alcohol or drugs to deal with life's problems. MyBrainSolutions offers our clinical team several valuable training exercises for patients to increase emotional and cognitive resiliency and improve self-confidence.
"We plan to use WebNeuro as a tool to measure how our patients are responding to our interventions during treatment and aftercare. In adddition, WebNeuro offers an outcome metric that will add even more evidence that treatment works in saving lives, families, careers and reducing the high costs to society for untreated chemical dependency."
MyBrainSolutions-Clinical incorporates Brain Resource's WebNeuro, a clinically validated tool for objective assessment of core cognitive strengths and weaknesses in addition to emotional capacities. Backed by the world's largest brain database, the WebNeuro assessment is delivered online and instantly so that Cornerstone's counselors will be able to profile and track each patient's cognitive capacity as they progress in recovery.
The company's MyBrainSolutions, a scientifically designed, online brain health solution used to know and train the brain for peak performance, will provide each patient with a tailored program of brain exercises to address their unique needs.
