How open are you to looking for innovative ideas to battle addiction and support and enhance systems of care for all parties involved with recovery? Information and theory are important, but interventions that help with anxiety, impulsivity, and trauma are what creates positive lasting change.
One intervention modality is evidenced-based Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) also called Tapping. EFT is a self-modulating tool that interrupts anxiety and automatically sends a calming signal to the brain. Once calmed, a person can think, rather than react and faulty patterns are interrupted, observed, and rectified and clarity arises.
Additionally, when used as an intervention technique, EFT augments and supports every step of the treatment and recovery process. Tapping reduces stress and anxiety; it treats trauma and other negative emotions without re-traumatization; it removes barriers to treatment and increases self-awareness and self-care; it helps with relief from both physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms and it FREE to self-administer anytime and anywhere.
This ability to self-regulate one’s emotions and calm anxiety, fears, and trauma-triggers is empowering and transformational. We all could benefit from learning EFT and add a little more ease, peace and clarity to our lives.
