Dr. A.J. Popky’s Addiction EMDR Protocol

In my ten plus years working in addiction, I can honestly say these are the best treatment protocols I have had the pleasure of using with clients.

It is not a cure-all and may not be appropriate for everybody, but usually, if it’s not right, it just means that other work will need to be accomplished before using these protocols for the addiction you are struggling with.

What’s unique about Dr. Popky’s DeTUR(tm) is that abstinence is not necessary for recovery. Since many persons who have unresolved trauma in their past or present, they often turn to addiction (behavior or substance) to self soothe. I often use these protocols with my clients’ permission and then move on to EMDR trauma protocol.
