MeRT Neuromodulation for Substance Abuse and Smoking Cessation

If you or a loved one are struggling with any of the following, gentle neuromodulation may be able to help.

How Cognitive Care by the Center for Brain Care Works


MeRT begins with a brainwave analysis to understand your unique brain biology and identify areas of the brain that are not functioning or communicating properly.


Our experienced clinicians use this proprietary evaluation to understand your biology and develop a personalized, targeted treatment plan to restore normal brain communication and optimize cognitive function.


Therapy takes place over a few weeks. The process is simple and gentle, non-invasive, non-surgical, and non-pharmaceutical, stimulating affected locations in the brain to improve function.

Quitting Smoking and Stopping Substance Abuse with Neuromodulation

MeRT therapy is cleared by the FDA for use in smoking cessation and can also help individuals kick alcohol habits, reduce cravings, and treat drug dependency.

Neuromodulatory therapies have demonstrated positive effects in reducing substance use and cravings across a variety of substance use disorders and addictions, including cocaine, methamphetamine, alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, cannabis, heroin, opiates, and opioids.
It can even be effective in those who have, or are at risk of, relapse, and it can work in conjunction with traditional pharmacotherapy and behavioral treatment methods.
