323-248-7475 X5

MET(T)A is a new and innovative way to envision and implement Addictions treatment that is grounded in the well researched 30 year old theory and practice of EMDR therapy. This approach leans heavily upon the incredible work of those who have explored the use of EMDR therapy with PTSD, addictions and a whole host of issues, and upon the obvious and deep need for trauma resolution to be a focus of sustainable long term recovery.

KEYNOTE: Beyond Mindfulness and Trauma Informed Care—Instituting Long Term, Systemized Treatment Protocols to Support Life Long, Sustainable Recovery 

Treatment for substance use disorders and other addictive behaviors continues to evolve. Mindfulness practices are now widely used in all types of treatment settings, and accreditation and government agencies now mandate that treatment include trauma- informed modalities. Although these changes have been positive and have helped many, long-term recovery rates are still low, especially 2 to 3 years out of treatment. This session will outline the importance of integrating trauma-focused protocols with long- term lifestyle support to help clients capitalize on gains and avoid self-sabotage.
