At the root of addiction is deep emotional pain. With that kind of pain, of course a person wants to "numb out" or forget for a little while. Others with that kind of pain distract themselves with busy-ness, taking care of everyone else (codependency), overworking, doing computer games excessively, gambling, viewing pornography, and countless other compulsive behaviors. Without treating the root cause-- deep emotional pain-- people with addictions will relapse again and again. Work with a therapist trained in EMDR trauma therapy to resolve the root cause. Nothing else works to resolve emotional trauma like EMDR therapy. Visit EMDRIA's website or give me a call to explain how it works.
