The mind can often heal itself naturally, in the same way as the body does. Much of this natural coping mechanism occurs during sleep, particularly during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Francine Shapiro developed Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) in 1987, utilizing this natural process in order to successfully treat Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Since then, EMDR has been used to effectively treat a wide range of mental health problems.
EMDR utilizes the natural healing ability of your body. After a thorough assessment and development of a treatment plan, you will be asked specific questions about a particular disturbing memory. Eye movements, similar to those during REM sleep, will be recreated simply by asking you to watch the therapist's finger moving backward and forwards across your visual field. Sometimes, a bar of moving lights or headphones is used instead. The eye movements will last for a short while and then stop. You will then be asked to report back on the experiences you have had during each of these sets of eye movements.
Experiences during a session may include changes in thoughts, images and feelings. With repeated sets of eye movements, the memory tends to change in such a way that it loses its painful intensity and simply becomes a neutral memory of an event in the past. Other associated memories may also heal at the same time. This linking of related memories can lead to a dramatic and rapid improvement in many aspects of your life.

Over the last two decades, addiction has become a true epidemic facing our country. In 2017, the Department of Health and Human Services went as far as declaring it a public health emergency. The need for opioid and heroin addiction treatment specifically has never been greater. The struggles and emotional problems addicts face are no different from those experienced by anyone else.
Our dedicated team believes in taking a whole person approach to recovery, that is, treating mind, body, and spirit. We equip our patients with the tools they need to heal not just their physical bodies, but also give them the emotional and communication skills they need to stay on the path of recovery long-term. If you are or a loved one is struggling with alcohol or substance misuse, call a member of our team today to explore your options. Help is just a click away.
MAT, or medication-assisted therapy is the use of medications coupled with behavioral therapies, which is effective in the treatment of opioid use disorders (OUD)
In addition to its use for the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, EMDR has been successfully used to treat:
EMDR can be brief focused treatment or part of a longer psychotherapy treatment plan. EMDR can be easily integrated with other approaches in which your therapist might be trained, such as Psychodynamic psychotherapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, or Cognitive Behavior Therapy. For best effects, EMDR sessions during the actual reprocessing phases of treatment usually last from 60 to 90 minutes. Positive effects have been seen after one session of EMDR.
EMDR is an innovative clinical treatment which has successfully helped over a million individuals. The validity and reliability of EMDR has been established by rigorous research. There are now over nineteen controlled studies into EMDR, making it the most thoroughly researched method used in the treatment of trauma, and The American Psychiatric Association, American Psychological Association, Department of Defense, Veteran's Administration, insurance companies, and the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies recognize EMDR as an effective treatment for PTSD.

Inpatient rehabs are intensive recovery treatment programs that are designed to treat moderate to severe, ongoing addictions to drugs and alcohol. Outpatient rehabs, on the other hand, are less intensive because they are done on a part-time basis. This allows patients to continue going to work or school while undergoing treatment.
We encourage you to reach out to us for a full evaluation. Every person’s needs are unique, and we can help you determine if inpatient or outpatient care is better suited to you based on your current lifestyle and addiction severity.
It depends. Patients in our short-term rehab program spend 28 days with us, while our long-term program provides up to 120 days of treatment.
