PTSD and Addiction

Dealing with any traumatic event is going to be like riding a roller coaster. At times, the journey is going to be full of bumps and twists and turns. There are also going to be times when you are scared or anxious. You may even feel like you are going to fall off the cliff. 

If you are like many others who struggle with PTSD, you may even turn to alcohol or drugs to try coping with what has happened to you. If this is the case, you may need co-occuring disorder treatment to help you work through both the addiction and post-traumatic stress disorder. 

Symptoms Reduced Due to EMDR Therapy

If you attend EMDR therapy, it is important to know that some symptoms may get worse before they get better. However, the goal of this type of therapy is to help ease and get rid of symptoms. The therapy sessions can also help you change the way you think about the trauma. Some symptoms that may be reduced due to EMDR therapy include:

  • Feeling on edge
  • Stress 
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Abusing alcohol or drugs
  • Lack of self-confidence 
  • Not trusting oneself or others

If you are currently experiencing these symptoms, you don’t have to keep struggling with them on your own. The sooner you start receiving EMDR therapy services and other treatment services for PTSD, the sooner you can overcome these symptoms. 

Benefits of EMDR Therapy Over Other PTSD Treatments

There are many different treatments that a person can receive to treat and overcome PTSD. If you have post-traumatic stress disorder, it might help to know that there are many benefits of attending EMDR therapy over some other PTSD treatments, such as:

  • Having fewer side effects
  • One-on-one treatment with the therapist
  • Having guidance throughout the treatment process
  • Takes less time to work through trauma 

As you can tell from this list, EMDR therapy can be truly beneficial to those who are struggling with PTSD. With this being noted, it is even more helpful when this type of therapy is combined with other PTSD treatments.
