Rapid Resolution Therapy

Rapid Resolution Therapy is a process that helps people who are struggling with addiction and other mental health issues. It is a way to help people get the help they need quickly.

This form of treatment takes on a holistic approach to substance abuse and other therapies, using imagery and metaphors for trauma recovery and emotional healing. Rapid Resolution Therapy retrains conditioned responses in the brain to better deal with trauma-related behavioral issues.

This article dives into Rapid Resolution Therapy and how it benefits individuals in substance abuse treatment programs. In addition, we look at the trauma of substance abuse.

What is Rapid Resolution Therapy?

What is Rapid Resolution Therapy? This relatively new type of treatment specializes in helping individuals recover from traumatic events that are potentially playing repeatedly in their minds.

Where more traditional forms of therapy could take years to produce favorable results, RRT uses specialized tools to drive the desired outcome in as little as three sessions.  The treatment was designed by Dr. Joseph Mercola, a well-known holistic health advocate, and author.

Rapid Resolution Therapy is based on the idea that traumatic memories and emotions can be stored in the brain in the form of conditioned reflexes or habits. Once these reflexes are activated, they become difficult to control. This is where RRT comes in: it helps people relearn how to deal with challenging situations in a healthier way, without relying on old patterns of behavioral responses that were formed as a result of the trauma.

What is Rapid Resolution Therapy

How Does It Approach Therapy Differently?

In traditional therapy, patients may explore their traumatic experiences in great detail. This can be valuable for both emotional healing and learning how to manage related behaviors more effectively. However, this type of therapy often takes years to produce any desired results.

With RRT, however, patients only need three sessions to see significant changes in their behavior. In those sessions, the therapist uses specialized tools such as imagery and metaphors to help patients unlearn old habits and activate new ones that are healthier and more appropriate for dealing with traumatic memories and emotions.

The strategy behind Rapid Resolution Therapy is similar to that used by trauma therapists who work with veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). RRT has been referred to as “art trauma therapy.”

Who Benefits from Rapid Resolution Therapy?

While Rapid Resolution Therapy is proving to be more effective in different treatment settings as time passes, specific population segments may experience more success than others. Who benefits from Rapid Resolution Therapy the most?

Individuals with addiction or mental health issues are the demographic most likely to experience success with Rapid Resolution Therapy. In fact, studies have shown that almost 92% of addicts who complete an RRT program remain successful in recovery beyond the first 12 months. Additionally, RRT is effective in treating anxiety, depression, and other conditions.

But not everyone is likely to benefit from RRT. For example, individuals who have experienced more severe trauma are more likely to benefit from the treatment than those who have experienced marginal instances of traumatic events. In addition, children and adolescents are also especially likely to experience success with RRT.

There are a few things that highlight successful RRT. First and foremost, successful completion of an RRT program is linked with decreased relapse rates. Second, people who complete an RRT program tend to experience positive physical and emotional changes. And finally, individuals who complete an RRT program typically have increased motivation for change and improved self-esteem.

When finding candidates suitable for RRT, it helps to find individuals who have received trauma treatment and initially show signs of progress but are still negatively affected upon closer examination. What are some signs that trauma is still affecting someone?

Signs that Trauma May Still Be Affecting You?

Signs that Trauma May Still Be Affecting

It’s important to be aware of the signs of someone who continues to suffer from the effects of trauma. These are potentially some of the best candidates for RRT and often the most urgent cases.

It’s important to be mindful of their mental state and ensure they’re not having thoughts of self-harm. What are some prominent signs that trauma is still prevalent in their lives?

Some signs that someone is still affected by trauma can include: a continued struggle with addiction or other addictions, difficulty concentrating or focusing, feeling overwhelmed, feeling stuck and unable to change, feelings of dread or anxiety, experiencing flashbacks or nightmares, and experiencing mood swings and/or depression, or experiencing insomnia.

Anyone who displays signs of withdrawing from friends and family should be a huge indicator. These individuals may claim to be fine, but the reality is they’re still profoundly affected internally.

Many people are aware of the presence of trauma in the lives of those with substance abuse disorder. But do they have a deeper understanding of this connection? What role does addiction play during the presence of trauma and vice versa?

Addiction and the Role of Trauma

Addiction is a complex disease caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. But what about the role that trauma plays in the life of an addict?

Many addiction experts believe that addiction is a result of unresolved trauma. Trauma can cause intense feelings of fear, anger, and sadness. It can also lead to dependency on substances or behaviors to try and cope with those feelings.

On many occasions of addiction, clients aren’t even aware that they’re using drugs to mask the feelings of trauma. This habit could start relatively minute or seemingly insignificant.

For example, someone could begin a path of addiction as a way to get back at someone who is hurting them. Let’s say a wife begins using pills because her husband stays out late.

The pills are a secret way of exacting revenge because her husband might disagree with her pill usage. However, the wife is subconsciously dealing with an unresolved feeling by burying it with substance abuse.

This happens beneath the surface and is a classic example of how trauma relates to addiction. Granted, in many cases, the trauma is much more severe, but this is an easy-to-understand way of explaining the relationship between the two.

Treating Dual Diagnosis In a Residential Setting

Is treating dual diagnosis in a residential setting effective? In many cases, a residential setting can be highly beneficial for dual diagnosis.

Group therapy and group recovery meetings are one way that a residential setting can promote a successful dual diagnosis treatment. In addition, participating in holistic forms of therapy via residential and group settings is also an ideal way to provide healing and uncover the mental health issues at the center of substance abuse disorder.

Holistically treating trauma is most likely the most effective treatment for many individuals. Trauma does such a number on the mind, body, and soul – often robbing people of a part of who they are or causing them to feel like a shell of their former selves. Holistic therapy seeks to rebuild people who are suffering in this way.

Addressing Trauma With a Holistic Rehab Approach

Addressing Trauma With a Holistic Rehab Approach
Addressing trauma with a holistic rehab approach is one of the best ways to be proactive in healing from trauma, especially when combined with substance abuse. Participating in holistic rehab therapies like:

…can be an effective route to healing the mind, body, and spirit. The treatments mentioned above allow a certain weight to be removed from participants’ shoulders. When the stresses of daily life are forgotten, it’s much easier to address emotions and feelings at the core of your being in a practical approach toward healing and recovery.

The best part of holistic rehab is that there is something for all personality types. In addition, it allows clients to try and express themselves using new mediums they usually wouldn’t in a new form of self-expression and discovery.

These two elements promote an effective form of healing that’s difficult to obtain with traditional forms of psychotherapy.
