Are you looking for a way to respond differently to relapse triggers and maintain your sobriety as you recover from addiction? Triggers are people, places, and things that are risky and can trigger the urge to drink or use drugs. Recovery involves developing solutions for these triggers so you can avoid or manage them.
In a 6-month research study in Germany, EMDR resulted in a statistically significant reduction of addiction cravings. Many people report a lessened urge to drink and use after the treatment. EMDR can also help to strengthen one’s sense of satisfaction and enjoyment from recovery and to continue to see oneself as successfully clean and sober.
