EMDR Trauma Therapy

EMDR Therapy in Arizona

Discover Peace & a Positive Sense of Self

At Decision Point Center, we provide Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) psychotherapy sessions to help patients suffering from behavioral addictions and substance cravings. Oftentimes, substance abuse disorders are related to traumatic experiences and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). When people substitute therapeutic healing by self-medicating with drugs or alcohol, they become addicted to both the substance and the perceived moments of relief. For this reason, self-medication can be an extremely dangerous Band-Aid that actually prevents people from recovering from their deeper traumas. EMDR therapy effectively targets the origin of the substance abuse disorder to help patients overcome both the trauma and the addiction.

Understanding EMDR Therapy

EMDR therapy focuses on helping patients analyze the past, understand the present, and prepare for the future. Essentially, this means that a patient works with a therapist to reconcile their past experiences and recognize how those events continue to shape their interactions and coping habits in the present. During this careful exploration, patients learn how to develop constructive skills and mindsets that can inspire positive future behaviors and reduce their desire to self-medicate.

Experience the Benefits

Under the guidance of our compassionate EMDR therapist, Carol Kibbee MA, LPC, patients can safely undertake the 8 phases of EMDR therapy and disconnect their traumatic experiences from their urges to self-medicate. Equally important, EMDR therapy enables patients to confront and treat the deeper emotional traumas that originally led to the substance abuse in the first place. Patients of EMDR therapy often report that their cravings disappear as they discover a more positive and confident sense of self.
