What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR therapy is a psychotherapy approach that was developed to treat trauma-related disorders such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The therapy involves the use of bilateral stimulation, which could be in the form of eye movements, sounds, or taps, while the patient recalls distressing memories
The bilateral stimulation is believed to help the patient process the traumatic memories, thereby reducing their emotional intensity and distress.

How Does EMDR Help with Addiction Treatment?

EMDR therapy has been found to be highly effective in treating addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression. Addiction often has underlying psychological issues that could be addressed through EMDR therapy. By helping the patient process the underlying emotional trauma, EMDR therapy helps them to gain insight into their addiction, and develop better coping mechanisms for triggers and cravings.

EMDR therapy has also been found to be effective in reducing the intensity of cravings, which could significantly reduce the likelihood of relapse. By helping patients process the emotions underlying their addiction, they are better equipped to manage triggers and cravings when they occur.
