Is there evidence from antiquity for factors that are proving to relate to addiction and recovery?
Can we combine these factors with the latest neurological discoveries for modern treatment?
The answer is an emphatic YES!
We are developing an unparalleled non-chemical tool for use by therapists and addiction recovery practitioners for patient treatment. (Also valuable for healthcare researchers of a wide range of disorders.) It is a simple kit that combines hardware, software, cultural anthropology, musicology and the latest research in neuroscience to deliver a deeply immersive multi-sensory experience at both a clinical and a traditional behavioral recovery level.
OTSF has meshed years of research in Archaeoacoustics with dozens of published reports from institutions such as Harvard Medical School, The Recovery Research Institute of Massachusetts General Hospital, The US National Institutes of Health, Montreal Neurological Institute, University of Cambridge, UCLA Laboratory of Brain, Behavior and Pharmacology and more.
The overriding message that comes through is the potential of sound and music for a breakthrough in treatment for a wide range of modern disorders. The promise of these new discoveries for treatment is a running theme. Sadly, it's incomplete. Perhaps our channels of discipline have become too narrow. Utilization of a Multi- and Trans-disciplinary approach is essential for bringing it all into focus.
Well, we have done that. We'll be happy to spell it all out in fine print, but it's in more pieces than the trees in a small forest. (Some background is presented in this 16-minute video, or this article. See also Archaeoacoustics.)
