Instead of using a standard EMDR protocol, you will be using a treatment approach which has been specifically tailored towards the elimination of addictions.
While it is an ideal goal to have, some people using Addiction EMDR will not attain complete abstinence at first. Complete abstinence is not a requirement for using the Addiction EMDR Program.
It should be noted that with addictions, there are often additional aspects of day-to-day life being negatively impacted by the behavior. It may be your marriage and family, your career, your physical health, or your overall state of mental well-being.
While regular EMDR sessions will eliminate your desire to use in your addiction, please be aware that with some substances, chemical withdrawal will also have a physical component. Because of this, be sure to take care of your physical health and see a doctor if it is needed.
