Albuquerque, New Mexico -

Icarus Behavioral Health, an alcohol and drug rehab in Albuquerque, NM, is happy to announce that their efficacy in providing a comprehensive range of New Mexico treatment services for addiction and mental health problems has been firmly established and allows them to be recognized as one of the best rehab centers in the state of New Mexico. Icarus Behavioral Health has an admissions team who are capable of evaluating the treatment requirements of a particular individual and coming up with a number of primary goals of treatment and a treatment plan to help patients in their journey towards recovery.

A spokesperson for Icarus Behavioral Health says, “If you or a loved one is struggling, contact our admissions department today in order to come up with a treatment plan and begin the road to recovery. There is a wide range of treatment modalities ranging from medication assisted treatment, 12-step based programs, behavior modification, and other therapeutic based treatment modalities. We offer many different modalities, however, the therapies including cognitive behavioral therapy seem to have the highest success rates according to many studies published on the National Library of Medicine website.”

They provide a continuum of care, which means that patients enter treatment at a particular level that is suitable to their needs and then step up to a more intense level or step down to a less intense level, depending on what is needed. Typically, a person will enter a higher level of care, such as inpatient treatment, and then when ready, go down to outpatient treatment before finally being discharged from the treatment services.

At Icarus Behavioral Health, they offer many different kinds of therapies. And they would like to highlight the skills of their staff in providing the best possible EMDR therapy Albuquerque residents can find in their area, including in Santa Fe. EMDR stands for eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, and it was originally intended for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Later on, it was found that EMDR can be efficacious in distancing patients from any adverse events of their past. The symptoms of these adverse events are typically manifested as anxiety, depression, and several other mood disorders.

Frequently, trauma and substance or chemical dependency are closely linked, which means that EMDR therapy may be effective for people who are struggling with an addiction. The process has now been simplified into an 8 phase EMDR therapy treatment: history taking; preparation; assessment; desensitization; installation; body scan; closure; and reassessment. Many studies have shown that EMDR therapy works and is evidence-based.

EMDR therapy works because trauma is stored in somatic memory and is expressed as alterations in biological stress response. Somatic memories are stored in the hippocampus. This means that every time a person remembers those memories, it is like reliving the event. Thus, stress hormones are released and the person has the same response as when the event first occurred. It is only after some figurative “distance” is placed between the event and the patient that the individual is able to start overcoming the debilitating symptoms evoked by that particular memory and start living a life that is not hampered by the effects of the trauma.

Icarus Behavioral Health had established as its mission to become the substance abuse treatment provider of choice for the residents of the state of New Mexico. And indeed, they were able to attain this leadership status in behavioral healthcare by offering the best personalized and evidence-based treatment for a wide variety of substance use and mental health problems. They also aim to leverage the benefits inherent in their location in the beautiful landscape of New Mexico and the Southwestern United States to improve and augment the recovery journey of their clients. Due to their intensive knowledge of the specific needs of their community, in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, including throughout the Southwest, they also serve as a vital resource for maternal mental wellness or mental health for mothers.
