Violent Behavior

Aggressive Behavior Treatment in Minneapolis

Health Recovery Center recognizes many “psychological” problems are based on imbalances of brain chemicals. Among these problems are ongoing irritability, angry outbursts, and aggressive behavior leading to violence. Treatment for violent behavior intends to remedy these, but conventional systems don’t always do the best job.

Most aggressive behavior treatments are based on behavior modification, psychotherapy, conflict resolution techniques, drug medications, and residential care. The results are even poorer than traditional chemical dependency treatment. “Crime and violence in America will not be solved by getting tough with criminals, or building more prisons,” says doctor William Walsh. “The only hope is early identification of future criminals and effective treatment through biochemical repair.”

For biochemical repair to be effective, a patient’s diet needs to be considered. In spite of dire warnings, the food industry continues to denature, modify, and distort our food—the very foundations of health and mental stability. Health Recovery Center promotes an ongoing study and reflection of this important subject and its relationship to a plethora of health problems, including the treatment of violent behavior. Wherever the Western American diet has been adopted, instances of violent behavior increase, and more people need aggressive behavior treatment than ever before.

Some of the subjects more closely examined, tested, and treated include:

  • Correcting hypoglycemia through diet and a nutritional regimen
  • Replacing essential fatty acids in the brain
  • Restoring calming neurotransmitters and other natural chemicals to calm the brain and central nervous system
  • Identifying and treating toxic metals accumulating in the brain
  • Finding a clinical ecologist to test you for chemical sensitivities
  • Checking for candida-related complex
  • Strengthening the immune system that was weakened from vaccinations

Health Recovery Center also examines the strong link of violence to brain allergies. Treatment for violent behavior at other centers doesn’t even consider this crucial factor.

Ongoing chemical exposures change the brain and cause people to display uncharacteristic behavior including sudden anger, irritability, and even violent outbursts. In our aggressive behavior treatment, HRC helps clients identify and treat allergies stemming from exposures to chemical fumes.

In a study we conducted, we found that over 56% of our alcoholic clients are sensitive to chemicals in the environment. The most common offender was the chemical ethanol, which is contained in a wide range of products:

  • Natural gas
  • Gasoline
  • Some paints
  • Automobile exhaust
  • Alcohols
  • Soft plastics
  • Some hand lotions and perfumes
  • Disinfectant cleaners
  • Tobacco smoke
  • Hydrocarbons

The most common reactions of those studied to ethanol were fatigue, exhaustion, spaciness, irritability, mental confusion, and depression. The magnitude and severity of these responses was startling. Subjects exhibited anything from sudden intense anger, tears and sobbing, to sleepiness, to the sudden inability to think or speak coherently.

Obviously, then, the chemical causes of violent behavior need to be considered in treatments for violent behavior. HRC provides a strong foundation of information showing how brain function changes due to chemicals in our environment. As we identify and treat problems that currently affect aggressive behavior treatments, we teach how to protect yourself from future exposures in our modern-day, toxic world— a crucial part of any treatment for violent behavior.

Treatment for Violent Behavior at HRC

Most treatment centers prescribe psychiatric drugs and therapy as treatments for violent behavior. While these aggressive behavior treatments treat the symptoms of these issues, they do not address the underlying cause. Health Recovery Center has a different approach. We address problems at the physical and molecular level. We work to repair the root issue instead of treating the symptoms and masking the cause.
