What Is EMDR Therapy?

Addiction therapy is a multifaceted approach designed to help individuals overcome substance use disorders and related mental health issues. It involves various therapeutic interventions that address not only the symptoms but also the underlying causes of addiction. The ultimate goal is to equip individuals with the skills and strategies needed for long-term recovery.

At My 5 Palms, our caring and compassionate team provides an extensive range of addiction therapies tailored to meet your unique needs and goals. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy is a form of psychotherapy that helps people heal from the symptoms and emotional distress resulting from traumatic life experiences. It’s widely recognized as an effective treatment for unresolved trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In addiction treatment, EMDR therapy is used to address the underlying trauma that may have contributed to or worsened a person’s substance use disorder (SUD).

Our EMDR therapy at My 5 Palms is designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories and change the way these memories are stored in the brain, thereby reducing addictive behavior and promoting recovery.

How EMDR Therapy Works for Addiction Treatment

The EMDR therapy at My 5 Palms follows a structured eight-phase approach:

  • History and treatment planning – We conduct a thorough assessment to understand your specific needs.
  • Preparation – We provide you with coping mechanisms to handle emotional distress.
  • Assessment – We identify the memory targeted for EMDR processing.
  • Desensitization – This involves the client concentrating on the disturbing memory while the therapist initiates eye movements.
  • Installation – The aim is to increase the strength of positive cognition.
  • Body scan – We check for any residual bodily sensations linked to the traumatic memory.
  • Closure – We ensure you leave each session feeling better than at the beginning.
  • Reevaluation – We assess the progress made in therapy and plan the next steps.

The number of sessions may vary depending on your unique needs and progress. However, the ultimate goal is to help you heal from past trauma and achieve lasting recovery.
