For the first time in history, scientists have access to imaging technologies that can peer into the functioning of the human brain on the tiniest of levels.
With advanced new scanning techniques such as SPECT imaging scans and the fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) we have a newer and deeper understanding of our internal computer than we once ever thought possible.
And it is these types of technology that are giving us a direct look at how EMDR Therapy changes the human brain and can make it work more efficiently.
If you take your time and work hard at EMDR Therapy you'll get the results you want, if you don't you wont. It's really that simple.
Both Virtual EMDR and the EMDR for Addiction Program are complete, self-administered EMDR Eye Movement Therapy programs specifically designed for at-home use without the assistance of a therapist.
Our online EMDR Therapy Program teaches you how to do complete EMDR sessions at home and on your own and features the same type of EMDR technology being successfully used by therapists and addiction rehab centers world-wide.
The other day I received an unhappy email from someone who signed up for the Virtual EMDR Eye Movement Therapy Program to work specifically on their depression and low self-esteem issues.
In her email she said that she wanted to cancel her subscription and that our program did not work for her. We give our customers a complete 30 day money back guarantee, so first I sent her a refund.
Since I am so passionate about EMDR and what our company does, I wrote her back to find out the details. I asked her why it didn’t work.
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.
Addiction is nothing short of brutal. It drains away your health, your sanity, and perhaps worst-of-all, your self-esteem and dignity.
No matter what approach you used to get sober, be it talk-therapy, 12 step programs, going away to rehab, or a technology-based approach like EMDR eye movement therapy, you have to take steps to ensure that you STAY sober. For a lifetime.
Thankfully, you’ve stop those strong triggers and addictive urges. But, like any other person, you will still be affected by the background problems and ups-and-downs of living. And that’s why you have to figure out new and sober ways to cope with the day-to-day challenges of life.
So then, once you have fought the good fight and gotten sober, you have to ask yourself-Now What?
