EMDR for Addiction and Trauma
EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitizing and Reprocessing Therapy is an innovative trauma recovery technique offered by Just Believe Recovery Center. During a session, the therapist engages the patient in a stimulation exercise in which past trauma is discussed.
Simultaneously, different parts of the brain are activated through a series of eye movements, often facilitated by moving lights or objects. By alternating between positive and negative thoughts with corresponding eye movement, the brain begins to desensitize itself to negative images and memories.
