Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
When it comes to addiction treatment, there are so many different techniques and modalities that have proven to be extremely effective; however, not every individual will respond to or experience optimal results from the same therapies. It’s for this very reason that addiction rehabilitation has come to be associated with a very broad spectrum of seemingly disparate or irrelevant therapies, and when some of them seem to be unrelated to addiction, it’s often because they address factors that are more indirectly associated with the development of substance abuse problems, including trauma.
At Coalition Recovery, we recognize that each patient has unique needs. For those who have experienced some type of trauma in their pasts or otherwise show symptoms of post-traumatic stress, a psychotherapeutic technique known as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing may be a prominent ingredient in their individual recipes for lasting recovery.
