At No Matter What Recovery, we understand that addiction and mental health concerns often stem from underlying trauma. Past traumatic events can often create issues in the present, which in turn may produce emotional and physical reactions.
An individualized and holistic approach to care to treatment addresses the mind, body, and spirit. No Matter What offers a range of evidence-based therapies, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to help our clients heal from their traumatic experiences.
EMDR therapy is a form of psychotherapy that helps individuals reprocess traumatic memories or events. It was developed in 1989 by Francine Shapiro and is a non-invasive treatment that uses bilateral stimulation such as eye movements, tapping, or sounds to activate the brain’s natural healing processes. EMDR therapy can help individuals with a range of mental health concerns, including anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
EMDR therapy can be an effective treatment option for individuals in substance abuse treatment. Substance abuse, like drugs and alcohol, often stems from underlying trauma, and EMDR therapy can help individuals reprocess traumatic memories and reduce their negative impact on their emotional and physical well-being. By addressing the root cause of addiction, individuals can develop healthier coping mechanisms and reduce the risk of relapse.
At No Matter What Recovery, our licensed and trained therapists offer EMDR therapy as part of our individualized treatment plans in all our levels of care. Our program focuses on addressing the root cause of addiction and mental health concerns, including underlying trauma.
We’ll work with you during the admissions process to determine which level of care will suit you best and if trauma is an objective that we’d like to work on together. At No Matter What Recovery, we always want to make sure that we’re addressing trauma and providing trauma-informed care, as we find it’s the cause of many substance abuse problems.
No Matter What Recovery specializes in providing outpatient treatment to the LGBTQ+ community in the greater Los Angeles area. We pride ourselves on putting the health of individuals who identify as LGBTQ+ (and allies) first and foremost.
We know members of our community struggle with unique situations and past traumas, such as discrimination and marginalization, that can often lead to problems with substance abuse and mental health. We’ve been there before and so we want to help and give back to our community. Our EMDR therapy takes into account a person’s unique background, sexual orientation, and gender identity and ultimately seeks to reduce the negative impact of traumatic memories.
