    Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively studied and proven effective for treating trauma. EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches. EMDR therapy promotes information processing of external stimuli, memories, thoughts, and feelings. EMDR sessions typically last 50-90 minutes and can be completed in as little as 12-15 sessions. However, many individuals with chronic trauma histories require more than 50 EMDR sessions to achieve significant symptom relief.

    EMDR therapy treats individuals, children, and adults of either gender exposed to one or more traumatic events. EMDR cannot cause someone to forget details of the traumatic event(s), nor does EMDR focus on exploring the past trauma(s). EMDR has been demonstrated effective for survivors of various traumas, including accidents, natural disasters, violent crimes, sexual abuse, and combat stress.

    EMDR is most effective when the client has completed a thorough psychiatric evaluation to rule out or treat any co-existing mental health problems. EMDR therapy does not involve hypnosis or abreaction (catharsis) of traumatic memories. EMDR is a goal-directed therapy in which the client works with the therapist to develop an individualized treatment plan that focuses on specific trauma memories and associated disturbance.

    Thinking about nutrition is an odd thing when you’re strung out. You are probably so low physically that all you want to do is sleep, eat comfort food and get high again. It’s hard to imagine having enough energy to care about what kind of food you are eating but think about it. Your body has gone through some severe physical stress, so it is vital to give it the building blocks it needs to recover. It’s equally important to remember that malnutrition can affect your mood and energy level, which affects your desire to get sober.

    If you’re eating right, you’ll have more energy for productive activities, such as going to meetings or being with other sober people in Indianapolis, Indiana. You’ll have more strength to fight cravings, and you won’t be so low that they are overwhelming. You will think clearly enough to make sober decisions. Finally, good nutrition helps keep your body strong against the familiar ravages of drug use–tuberculosis, hepatitis, abscesses, infections, etc.—as well as the physical symptoms of withdrawal.

    Life skills training is beneficial for addicts in recovery because it helps them learn how to take care of themselves and improve their quality of life, which can promote feelings of purpose and motivation.

    This type of treatment works by teaching individuals life-enhancing skills that support positive living, including:

    • Healthy lifestyle habits
    • Skills to effectively manage stress
    • Effective communication skills to help them get their needs met without turning to drugs or alcohol
    • Money management and budgeting skills so they can continue to take care of themselves after treatment ends.

    Nicotine replacement therapy can help addicts reduce or eliminate their cravings for nicotine. By replacing the harmful substances in tobacco with less potent chemicals, most smokers can gradually wean themselves off cigarettes without experiencing intense cravings.

    During these sessions, a therapist will work with the addict to gradually reduce their dependence on nicotine by controlling how much they smoke and providing appropriate breaks between cigarettes. Using this type of therapy in combination with other strategies can help smokers learn how to quit smoking for good and avoid relapse.
