For this post, we have a volunteer guest writer. His name is Scott and he is from Chicago. This article reflects his specific experiences using EMDR Therapy to treat his addictions. We approached him and he volunteered to share his story with us.
I am not a researcher, or an addiction therapist, or a mental health professional and I cannot say any person will have results that are the same as mine, or for that matter different results than mine. This is just my personal experience with EMDR therapy. This is how it was for me.
Before I got sober, I was addicted to what felt like absolutely everything. And when I say everything I mean everything.
I was a drunk. I smoked marijuana every day. I was compulsive sexual, a lot of times with people I didn’t even know, and I had meth binges where I would be awake for days at a time. I have no idea how it is that I am still alive. I did so many dangerous things, and I spent all of my time with the worst sort of people.
