Science has forged many new developments and a deeper understanding into the human psyche and how environmental circumstances increase one’s risk for the onset of addictive behaviors. Emotional, sexual and physical trauma, whether a one-time occurrence or ongoing, scar personal memory. For some, the trauma is played out on a conscious level, changing the way they see relationships and how to respond. For others, trauma challenges the subconscious and lives in dreams or remains hidden under the recesses of a forgotten past.
No matter how trauma happens, it alters how a person makes life choices and, ultimately, affects their reality. Addictive behaviors and emotional disorders come about as a response to the trauma or to help protect a person from engaging triggers that would remind them of the incident(s).
We provide a variety of therapies to help clients ease the mind and calm the body in response to stressors, but EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is especially beneficial. This type of psychotherapy minimizes the negative effects of trauma, helping clients work through issues more effectively. In addition to supporting addiction treatment, EMDR also helps with other behavioral and mental health conditions.
