schick shadel brain before and after treatment

Scientific Evidence Proves Schick Shadel’s 10-Day Treatment Program Works!

Schick Shadel is the only inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation hospital in the nation that uses medical science, aversion therapy, and counterconditioning to successfully treat addiction by stopping addictive cravings in the brain. As a result, Schick Shadel has treated more than 85,000 patients successfully over the past 85 years.

In a published study, 69% of participating patients reported they were sober 12 months after treatment.**

A Schick Shadel and University of Washington study observed patient’s craving-related brain activity using an fMRI scan before treatment and 4 days after Schick Shadel’s treatments. The study concluded that there was a significant reduction or complete elimination of addictive cravings within the brain. After 12 months, 69% of participating patients were still sober.**

A Overview of Counter Conditioning.


Aversion therapy is a form of counter conditioning that helps remove cravings. The repetitious act of drug or alcohol use just strengthens the memory. Like a hard drive or digital camera, physical experiences stored in memory can be played back when triggered. Addiction builds associations in the brain that become embedded in short and long-term memory.
