Awakenings Treatment Center has developed a cutting-edge, neuro-scientifically oriented treatment program specifically for adults of all ages struggling with post-Covid symptoms or what many are calling ‘Long Haul Covid’. The three most common symptoms of post-COVID-19 condition include shortness of breath, memory and concentration difficulties, cognitive dysfunction (brain fog) as well as fatigue. Less frequent but still common symptoms include people who experience things such as: chest pain, difficulty speaking, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, insomnia, hypersomnia, muscle aches, fever, lingering loss of smell and loss of taste. Older adults and people with co-morbid, serious medical conditions are the most likely to experience lingering COVID-19 symptoms, but young, otherwise healthy people can also feel unwell for weeks to months after infection as well.

In addition to symptoms directly related to Covid-19, many individuals isolated at home for long periods of time during their illness have turned to alcohol, food and other substances to self-medicate the fear, isolation, loneliness and anger that living with a chronic condition may provoke. At Awakenings Treatment Center we are positioned to provide you with comprehensive treatment for your post-Covid 19 symptoms as well as related addiction, abuse, and mental health symptoms. This is common for individuals who have never experienced a problem with addiction, compulsive eating or mental health problems, previously.

It is currently unknown what the average duration of post-Covid 19 symptoms may be, however current estimates range between 3–9 months. The neurological nature of the most common symptoms lends hope for those who choose to access a multi-disciplinary team in a neuroscientific facility such as Awakenings Treatment Center.  It is similarly unclear what percentage of clients develop lingering Covid symptoms, and estimates range from 10% – 30%. These estimates include individuals for whom their original Covid illness was mild or moderate in nature. There appears to be little to no correlation between severity of original infection and vulnerability of long-haul symptoms.

The Post-Covid 19 treatment program at Awakenings Treatment Center includes a broad array of neuroscientific modalities, including: daily sessions of EEG Biofeedback, Alpha-Stim and Hemi Sync, Peripheral Biofeedback, and gentle Movement Therapies, in addition to individual and group therapeutic supports. Medication management with our triple board-certified staff physician is also an important component of each client’s treatment as well.

While providing effective treatment for the specific symptoms of Post Covid 19, Awakenings Treatment Center also provides extensive trauma, anxiety and depression therapies to address the medical trauma, mental health challenges and interruption to one’s life that occurs with a chronic health condition. Trauma Resolution and Grief & Loss groups and individual sessions work in tandem with neuroscientific modalities to provide you with the most effective and holistic treatment available.
