For over 15 years, CRI-Help has worked with UCLA to optimize treatment plans and help minimize suffering during recovery. Our partnership has supported clinical advancements in the treatment of addiction and continues to help save and rebuild countless lives. The research included describes the findings that reshaped our treatment plans to ensure the best possible outcome for each individual client.​


We invite you to read the published work we supported and return to see the latest findings. Our aim is to provide the most cost-effective and successful treatment for substance use disorder. We frequently look for new ways to expand our partnerships with other research institutions to continue to explore and improve health measures for the treatment of addiction. Let’s save lives together!


William C. Scott, B.S.W. and fellows tested to see whether the mental strengthening effects of EEG Biofeedback could help lower the relapse rates found in addiction. An experimental model was used and 120 participants from CRI-Help were recruited to complete the study. The results showed that, while in treatment, the participants in the EEG program stayed clean longer and reported a higher level of satisfaction with their rehabilitation program.

Larissa J. Mooney, MD. and fellows, in partnership with CRI-Help, saw an opportunity to improve treatment outcomes for methamphetamine-dependent individuals through the use of an aerobic exercise plan. What they found was that 8 months after participants completed their rehabilitation program, more participants in the aerobic exercise treatment group reported remaining sober.


This study was initiated by CRI-Help’s Chairman of the Board, Marcus Sola. He stated, “It must be recognized that we are dealing here not only with typical research subjects, but rather with the most difficult type of addict currently in rehabilitation. To have observed this kind of improvement over what we consider to be a model, state-of-the-art program already is simply remarkable.” He concluded that when these results are confirmed in other studies, “they will change the standard of care in the field.”
