Substance abuse addiction is a multi-faceted issue. It is physical, mental, and habitual. Every area of a person’s life is impacted, and during treatment all those areas must be addressed to promote long-term and permanent recovery.
To sum it up, “the body has a very powerful mechanism (self-regulation) that assists us with adapting to new situations and challenges. Even though it does not always choose the best solution to rise to the occasion, the brain has an incredible capacity to learn from experience.
Our bodies and our brains are built with healing mechanisms already embedded in them. Think about when you’ve cut your finger; have you ever watched how, over time, the skin molds back together? The only time this doesn’t occur is if something is blocking the way or reinstating the cut. So, healing is allowed to happen. The bandage doesn’t heal it; it’s a catalyst for keeping your healing body on track. So is the case with EMDR.
Neurofeedback therapy is a process of monitoring the brain’s behavior by way of its electrical signals and using that information to reinforce positive brain behavior. This results in improved brain function and increased awareness of the role the brain’s chemical and electrical behavior plays in the decision making process.

Holidays are difficult for many who are addicted to drugs and alcohol.
For most, Thanksgiving is a time of intense reflection about the past and introspection on how far they might have come in the last year. This type of thought can often be a joyous event that a person celebrates with friends and family. However, it’s no secret that the holidays are known for being a difficult time for many people addicted to drugs and alcohol. With the copious amounts of opportunities to drink or use, the financial, familial, and traveling stress, and the general pressures that come at the end of the year, the chances for relapse seem endless. Not to mention the fact that many people addicted to drugs often feel stuck in a place where they might only be seeing the things they’ve done wrong, or view another year as a failure as they attempt to get clean. It can sometimes seem like having a year filled with active drug addiction and feelings of happiness, gratitude and peace at Thanksgiving are mutually exclusive. However, a look at Gulf Breeze Recovery’s testimonials webpage will prove you wrong.
