Treating Trauma + Family of Origin

Understanding the Roots of Addiction

At the heart of many addiction stories lies a tapestry of trauma and emotional imprinting that shapes self-destructive patterns and behaviors. Recognizing this, NEM Recovery Centers places a significant emphasis on identifying and healing the underlying trauma that often fuels substance abuse. We understand that to achieve lasting sobriety, we must address not only the addiction itself but also the pain that lies beneath.

Evidence-Based Care for Healing

Targeted Therapies for Deep-Rooted Trauma

Our approach to trauma treatment is rooted in evidence-based care, utilizing therapeutic modalities proven to help individuals process and overcome their traumatic experiences.
These include:
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): A highly effective therapy that helps diminish the distressing emotions associated with traumatic memories.
  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT): This form of therapy aims to change the negative thought patterns related to the trauma, helping individuals to react to memories and triggers in a healthier way.
  • Somatic Experiencing: A body-oriented approach to trauma recovery that emphasizes the individual’s physical responses and works to release the tension held in the body as a result of trauma.
By integrating these therapies into our comprehensive treatment plans, we offer our clients the best chance for healing and moving forward.

A Holistic Approach to Recovery

Healing the Whole Person

Our commitment to healing trauma extends beyond traditional therapy sessions. We believe in treating the whole person—mind, body, and spirit—through a range of supportive practices, including:
  • Mindfulness and Meditation: To help individuals become more present and aware, reducing the impact of past trauma on their current state of mind.
  • Physical Wellness: Encouraging participation in physical activities such as yoga, which can help release physical tension and promote mental well-being.
  • Nutritional Support: Providing a balanced diet to support overall health, recognizing the connection between gut health and mental health.
