There is one word that has transformed Third Way Center’s approach to treating traumatized youth: Encephalopathy.
A revelation was made after discovering that a large number of youth in our care are unable to respond to various treatment methods because trauma changes the brain, often causing physical damage. In order to begin the emotional healing process, the brain must heal first.
Despite many years of skepticism, it is now widely accepted in the medical community that similar to other organs, the brain is capable of healing and recovering damaged cells. Through practices such as meditation, sound therapy, word puzzles, yoga, learning to play instruments and to speak foreign languages – combined with medication – once unimaginable growth and healing is now possible.
Our Encephalopathy Unit is the only known treatment center of its kind in the United States, taking advantage of the latest scientific evidence available to give our youth renewed truth and hope for the future.
