Rigorous Psychological Testing

Along with one-on-one clinical interviews with Origins’ on-staff clinical psychologists, our team leverages advanced psychological testing such as:

The PNP Center also offers a two-day assessment that is administered at the PNP Center in Lewisville. This unique assessment provides specialized testing such as Quantitative Electroencephalography (qEEG) brain mapping, heavy metal testing, or hormone testing.

Our team is dedicated to the integration of clinical, medical, and spiritual interventions. Built from their experience working at Origins, Dr. Frank Lawlis and Laura Martinez have also authored a book entitled PsychoNeuroPlasticity Protocols for Addictions: A Clinical Companion for the Big Book.
