Alpha-theta brainwave training and beta-endorphin levels in alcoholics.
showed sharp reductions in self-assessed depression (Beck's Depression Inventory) compared
to the control groups. Alcoholics receiving standard medical treatment (abstinence, group
psychotherapy, antidepressants) showed a significant elevation in serum beta-endorphin
levels at the conclusion of the experiment. This neuropeptide is an index of stress and a
stimulant of caloric (e.g., ethanol) intake. Application of brainwave treatment, a
relaxation therapy, appears to counteract the increase in circulating beta-endorphin
levels seen in the control group of alcoholics. 13-month follow-up data indicate sustained
prevention of relapse in alcoholics that completed alpha-theta brainwave training.
