For 40 years, the neurophysical medicine practice, with clinics in West Los Angeles and Irvine, has helped more than 15,000 people mobilize the healing powers of the brain to improve or resolve their neurophysical disorders. Drake Institute of Behavioral Medicine uses highly evolved neuroscience-based state-of-the art-mind (brain) body technology that empowers each patient to improve brain-neurophysical functioning to reduce or eliminate symptoms.

As a medical clinic, the Drake Institute of Behavioral Medicine is able to approach the treatment process with a more comprehensive level of knowledge. Thusly, the Drake Institute of Behavioral Medicine uniquely provides a comprehensive non-drug program integrating the fields of medicine, neurosciences, neuropsychology, psychology, and family therapy to offer highly effective treatment without drugs. Treatment protocols are individualized based on the information gathered during a comprehensive initial evaluation and qEEG brain mapping. It may include biofeedback training/treatment, brain map-guided neurofeedback and brain-map guided neuromodulation training/treatment, language processing rehabilitation, behavior modification, and family support. 

At the Drake Institute of Behavioral Medicine, brain mapping identifies the dysregulated areas of the brain linked to symptoms. The treatment targets these areas to improve brain functioning and the underlying brain dysregulation, thereby reducing symptoms. Disorders that benefit from the innovative treatments include attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD), autism spectrum disorder, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), migraine headaches, high blood pressure, autoimmune disorders, and insomnia. The neurophysical medical practice has yielded extraordinary results throughout the treatment spectrum and has gained a reputation as one of the most experienced treatment facilities in the world.
