EMDR stands for “Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing”. EMDR is a form of therapy that enables clients to heal from traumatic experiences quickly and thoroughly. Study after study has shown the efficacy in using this form of psychotherapy.
Upon completion of a recent study where 30 EMDR therapies were conducted, astonishingly, the results showed that 84%-90% of the individuals who received this treatment were no longer experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder after participating in only 3, 90-minute sessions.
For over 25 years, patients have been enjoying the vast benefits of such a therapy and now at the “Rehab South Florida” we’re implementing it as a part of our treatment options to help our patients overcome trauma, emotional distress, anxiety, and disturbing experiences.
It’s a great form of therapy to have integrated in to a patient’s recovery plan as its enables individuals to rid themselves of daunting thoughts that can have adverse effects on their receptiveness to recovery.
EMDR therapy specifically targets the brains natural inclination towards self-healing of emotional and psychological traumatic events by almost rewiring and reprocessing what has caused this intense suffering, and unblocks this festering. These sessions have been shown to greatly reduce the healing time in regards to trauma.
So many studies have been done on EMDR that it is recognized as a greatly effective form of trauma treatment by not only the “American Psychiatric Association” – but the “World Health Organization” and the “Department of Defense”.
EMDR can provide recovery assistance for an array of conditions including:
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

- Anxiety Disorders
- Complicated Grief Issues
- Substance Abuse
- Pornography Urge Reduction
- Sexual Addictions

Since some of the conditions listed above can accompany drug or alcohol abuse we ensure that all patients receive optimum care which is why we provide EMDR as a form of treatment.
