Substance Use Disorder
Imagine Laserworks treatment specialists are committed to your success! Successfully overcoming a Substance Use Disorder depends on your determination and commitment, not just the treatments. Imagine Laserworks treatments are not a quick fix, but they can be the catalyst to your success and will relieve a lot of the withdrawal discomfort that is typically experienced during the process of quitting. The sessions will help restore the body’s energy and internal balance and create a stronger base for you to fight from.
What Happens During a Treatment Session?
Your specialist will interact with approximately 40 specific trigger points located on the ears, hands and feet. This process causes the brain to increase the natural production of chemicals called endorphins. You will feel a calming, relaxed effect without being sedated; the physical dependence on the afflicting substance will be relieved as a result. There will be a reduction in cravings and the impact of other symptoms, such as anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, fatigue, cramps, vomiting and depression will be reduced as well or even eliminated.
We will introduce you to safe, natural, nutritional supplements that will help in the detox process, eliminating the harmful toxins in the body and helping to repair the damage done. These supplements will aid in calming you and with promoting restful sleep – the body’s repair window. This will assist you in keeping a clear mind and being free to focus on your recovery.
Initially sessions should be scheduled as close together as possible. Gradually sessions can be scheduled further apart as you adjust to your new lifestyle. We recommend three initial treatment sessions, which take between 45 minutes and 1 hour each, with follow-up sessions on an as-needed basis. The number, frequency and duration of follow-up sessions are specific to each individual.

Healthy Coping Mechanisms:
Many people are stuck in a cycle of addiction because their unhealthy behaviour has been a substitute for more healthy lifestyle coping mechanisms. This means their emotional strength was compromised at some point and it stays that way until they go through the recovery.
Using drugs can feel like a quick escape solution; but often times the result is serious long-term health and relationship problems. Many addicts persist in their self-destruction despite knowing the extreme consequences and our treatments put them in a place where they have the tools that allow them to make a better choice.
You want to quit, but you feel trapped. Your brain is physically addicted to feeling good and demands the substance – the endorphins our treatments cause the body to produce, provide a natural alternative to quench that demand and provide the method to address the addiction.
How long will it take to overcome your addiction? Every person and situation is different, but if you are ready to begin, Imagine Laserworks is a positive step towards regaining your freedom.
