At Alano we believe in treating the underlying causes and conditions that lead to substance abuse. Because that is the case, we offer many treatment programs that aim to treat both the substance abuse and the underlying cause(s) such as trauma (PTSD), anger, depression, anxiety, grief & loss, and self-esteem.
Our trauma therapy program is a great example of this. Seeking Safety is a therapeutic group which helps clients to attain safety in their relationships, thinking, behavior, and emotions. In addition, at Alano we have clinicians who have been trained extensively and received certifications in stress management.
Call us if you are suffering from trauma, anger, depression, anxiety, grief & loss, or low self-esteem. We can help you.
At Alano we believe working through our trauma is an important part of healing.
We are proud to be offering individual EMDR services to clients to support them through this process.
"EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. When you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound. If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. EMDR therapy demonstrates that a similar sequence of events occurs with mental processes. The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health. If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. " (EMDR Institute)
