About Amen Clinics

At Amen Clinics, we specialize in an innovative brain-body approach to diagnosis and treatment planning for a wide array of emotional, behavioral, learning, cognitive, and weight issues for children, teenagers, and adults.

Amen Clinics, Inc. is one of the world leaders in applying brain imaging science to help people who struggle with:

  • Emotional issues such as anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.
  • Behavioral challenges like addictions, weight control, or anger-management issues.
  • Cognitive problems such as memory issues, Alzheimer’s Disease, and dementia.
  • Learning challenges like Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), also called Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

What Makes Amen Clinics Different?

Our brain imaging work clearly shows that we are not dealing with mental health issues, rather we are dealing with brain health issues that steal your mind. At Amen Clinics, we believe that brain health is the foundation of overall health, well-being, and success. When the brain is healthy, people are happier, physically healthier, wealthier, and they make better decisions, which helps them be more successful in every area of life. When the brain is not healthy, for whatever reason, people are sadder, sicker, poorer, and their decision-making suffers, which diminishes their chances for getting what they want out of life.

Unlike traditional psychiatry that rarely looks at the organ it treats, we use brain SPECT imaging, which measures blood flow and activity in the brain to help us more accurately diagnose and treat your needs. Our comprehensive evaluations also include laboratory testing (when necessary), clinical assessments, your personal history, and more. This helps us provide you with a comprehensive, personalized treatment plan utilizing the least toxic, most effective solutions to enhance brain health.

Achieving our mission to boost brain health not only helps individuals prevent or alleviate suffering, but it also helps everyone around them—family members, friends, and coworkers. In addition, helping one person’s brain can create a lasting legacy that will empower and improve the lives of their future generations.

Our unique, well-researched process results in higher than average success rates. In fact, we perform outcome studies on our patients, which have found that 85% of people report a better quality of life after treatment at Amen Clinics.

The most important lesson we have learned from over 200,000 brain scans is that you are NOT stuck with the brain you have. You can change your brain and change your life. And we can help you do it.
