EMDR & NeuroCenters

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)

An Efficient Treatment Option

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is an eight-phase treatment method, offered at our Discovery NeuroCenters, that helps to expedite the processing of traumatic memories. Studies and practice have demonstrated that EMDR can often speed up the healing process from these disturbing memories or experiences in a fraction of the time previously required of talk therapies for trauma. Since eating disorders result from a complex combination of underlying issues, EMDR gives clients renewed hope for an accelerated, lasting recovery.

Finding Powerful Pathways

Adhering to our commitment to evidence-based treatment, EMDR has achieved an exemplary success rate. The structure of the eight-phase modality provides safety and containment for clients to move through previously unsafe or disturbing memories with the therapist. When the client is ready, one phase introduces bilateral stimulation, BLS with eye movements, tactile or auditory methods. The back and forth BLS movements are similar to Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep, which allows internal associations to arise to be re-processed in the brain. By utilizing treatments such as EMDR, that trigger certain mechanisms within the brain, our NeuroCenter therapists are able to open previously closed or untapped pathways to healing.

  • I was sent to [Center for Discovery], an all women's eating disorder treatment facility, and I was terrified to go. I was told I would be there for a month and would return home after that. I ended staying there for almost 3 months, and I can honestly say I am beyond thankful for my time there. I learned so much and they helped me find myself and get over my traumas and learn to cope with issues that I was having. All the staff was super helpful and had my best interest at heart. I may have not liked all of them, but I knew they wanted what was best for me. Even after my insurance run out, the therapist I was working with arranged for me to go to another center to continue my treatment because I was not ready to come home. I highly recommend getting help with Center for Discovery. They truly care!

  • I was at [Center for Discovery] for 6 weeks. I'm from Ohio and being so far away from home was hard. The staff made me feel super comfortable and cared for, making my stay much more manageable. The program was very individualized. They worked hard to make sure my specific needs were met and that my specific behaviors were addressed. This is a top notch facility with incredibly caring staff. Not only were the house staff wonderful, but everyone from admissions to the medical director worked hard to make sure I knew what was going on. This is a wonderful company who are true to what they say. They gave me my life back. I'm someone who has been in and out of treatment for my eating disorder and this program was by far the best. I feel so optimistic about my future. The progress I made there was life changing and I will be forever grateful. I recommend this program to anyone who is serious, willing, and ready to get better.

  • I was surprised by my parents with the option of going to get help for my eating disorder and overall unhealthy lifestyle. I so badly wanted to get help, but was too ashamed. After talking to my mom I agreed to at least talk to someone from Center for Discoveryabout what program I would be in and what it would be like. The gal was super helpful, kind, and did not make me feel like I was the only person who suffered from what I did. She was very patient with me and overall helped out our family with the process of insurance and costs and what not. As for the actual facility I stayed at, it was a great experience.

  • We had our son in an acute care hospital and the social worker recommended the Center for Discovery. Before our son was discharged, my wife and I met with the staff and toured the facility. We were impressed by the staff and how the program was structured. Our son was there 6 weeks. It was a game changer and now we feel our son left with a good base of skills that he has continued to use. We now feel our son can leave a normal type life and not have to worry that he may need to live in a group home setting as an adult. We can't say enough for the help and support we received from the entire staff at the Center for Discovery. When we were considering the facility we did some reviews on line. Some weren't overly positive, but most were and we feel that it was a very positive experience for our son and our family. Even our son now admits that he learned some great skills and that his time at Center for Discovery turned his life around.
