Certified Medical Assessments
Employers, EAPs, insurance companies, legal entities and health professionals may require a medical assessment before or after providing services. Throughout the assessment process, clients are provided with a safe, confidential environment where they can self-disclose their experience with alcohol and drug abuse to a doctor specializing in addictions medicine.
Trauma Processing (EMDR)
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an effective way to work through trauma. When a traumatic or distressing event occurs, we sometimes lose the ability to cope. This can result in day to day problems, ranging from relationships issues, negative beliefs, phobias, grief, and trouble sleeping. The goal of EMDR is to help our patients develop better coping mechanisms and the reduce the long-term effects of trauma. EMDR is also effective in combating triggers and cravings in the treatment of addiction.
Sex Addiction Therapy
Edgewood Health Network Vancouver offers counselling to men and women struggling with compulsive sexual behaviours. These behaviours may range from excessive viewing of pornography, infidelity, commercial sex and other behaviours which impact a person’s self-esteem and cause distress in the family. Working with a certified sex addiction therapist, the treatment process usually begins with an initial interview to discuss the client’s concerns. Options for treatment, including individual, group or others are recommended.
For partners, the immediate goal is to provide a safe space to express their emotions, often including hurt, anger and betrayal. Context and appreciation for the upheaval accompanying compulsive sexual behaviours’ effects helps to begin the healing process.
