What Is EMDR?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, (EMDR), is the latest in psychotherapy for treatment of PTSD, trauma, addiction, stress, and many other emotional troubles. This exciting new technique is revolutionary to the treatment of psyche problems because it effectively treats the problem by rewiring the neuropathways in the brain. At Scottsdale Recovery Center we are proud to offer this innovative therapy to our patients that are battling with addiction, recovery, PTSD and trauma. EMDR Trauma focused treatment modalities address and conquer any childhood abuse, childhood traumas, adult traumatic events, grief and loss issues and depression. Specifically, we utilize EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. This is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. This is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches. To date, EMDR therapy has helped millions of people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is one of the best forms of therapy for recovery from addiction and trauma.
Research has proven that early childhood trauma is the cause of many adulthood problems and the underlying cause of many addictions and mental disorders. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is the most comprehensive treatment for healing the feeling of trauma that is linked to these memories. This works by channeling the neuropathways that were created at the time of trauma, and reprogramming the feelings associated to the incident. This type of treatment called “bilateral stimulation” is a unique form of treatment that works for a wide variety of patients and recovery needs by changing the fundamental views or memories that corrupt behaviors.


At Scottsdale Recovery Center, we are dedicated to providing the best treatment- including EMDR Therapists. Our goal is to help patients rebuild a life with meaning and free of addiction.
