Trauma Recovery/EMDR Therapy

Have you had a traumatic experience in your life? If so, our Blue Hills Recovery team wants you to know that you aren’t alone. Unfortunately, millions of people go through something traumatic and many of those people end up with PTSD. If you are having a difficult time overcoming the memories or feelings from the traumatic experience, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team. We offer trauma recovery/EMDR therapy programs.


In the meantime, we want to talk to you a bit more about how this type of treatment can help you to overcome PTSD and treat addiction, as well.

PTSD and Addiction

There are millions of people who abuse drugs or alcohol to try hiding the feelings and memories that were caused by the traumatic experience. If you have done this, know that you aren’t alone. With this being said, there are people out there who understand what you are going through and want to help. Our team members are trained and experienced in handling PTSD and addiction.


Some symptoms of PTSD and addiction that you might have include:

  • Feeling on edge
  • High stress levels
  • Increased anxiety
  • Feeling isolated
  • Depression

Unfortunately, drinking or using drugs only amplifies these effects. Then, when the memories return from the traumatic experience, you may use more drugs or alcohol to cover them back up. The cycle will continue until you get the help that is needed to overcome both the PTSD and addiction.


Here at Blue Hills Recovery, our team can help you with both these conditions. We have treatments, such as EMDR therapy, that can be very beneficial for you.

EMDR Therapy and Trauma Recovery Benefits

Do you have PTSD or any symptoms of this disorder? If so, our team wants you to know that we have treatments that can help you to get your life back. One of these treatments is EMDR therapy. Some benefits of this type of therapy in trauma recovery and addiction recovery include:

  • Fewer side effects and complications of EMDR therapy than many of the PTSD treatment medications
  • Get more benefits sooner than you might with medications or from just talk therapy alone
  • Being able to recognize and process where your feelings and emotions are stemming from (then, being able to work through them)
  • Being able to change the way you view the trauma by recognizing triggers and finding positive ways to cope

These are just some of the many reasons why you may want to contact our team to start EMDR therapy. If you have more questions about the benefits of this type of PTSD treatment, let us know today.

How EMDR Therapy Works

Before you start any treatment for PTSD or addiction, you may want to know how it is going to work. There are different strategies and techniques used with EMDR Therapy. However, some of the basics that you may want to know about this process and treatment include:

  • Using a machine with lights to help you become more aware of past trauma
  • Using certain techniques, the therapist can help you to bring your focus back to the present (so, you can determine how you are feeling when these memories show up)
  • Taking what you learn to alter the insights you have from these traumatic events
  • Finding the cause of triggers allows you to better handle things from this point forward
  • Working with the therapist, you can confront traumatic events from your past and create new thought processes, so you can heal

Are you struggling with triggers due to past trauma? If so, we don’t want you to feel alone any longer. We want to help you get your life back. Reach out to our team and we can set you up in a trauma recovery/EMDR therapy program.

Do You Need EMDR Therapy

Are you going to need EMDR therapy? There are numerous ways to find the answer to this question. However, if you fall into any of the categories noted below, you would likely benefit from receiving this treatment. Some people who might need this treatment include:

  • Struggling with PTSD or symptoms of PTSD
  • Having an addiction caused by a traumatic experience
  • Tried other treatments for PTSD without any progress or limited progress
  • Need more support in your journey to recovery from PTSD or addiction
