What is a healthy internal life worth to you?

Survivors of abuse, neglect and other traumas often suffer from depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and hopelessness. For more than a decade, this brief, effective treatment has helped people of all ages find freedom.

Though the effects of trauma can be frightening and overwhelming, Thrive treatment is a remarkably peaceful process that has proven to alleviate depression and anxiety and to increase self-esteem, internal peace and an ability to connect to others. Without addressing the roots, symptoms may never go away and most often worsen. This can prevent the person from ever knowing who they are and fulfilling their potential.

How does Thrive treatment work?

Thrive is based on Neuro-Reformatting and Integration (NRI), a method of trauma treatment that uses the Instinctual Trauma Response model to rework how traumatic memories are encoded in the brain. It fosters the client’s connection to himself and reconnection to others through integration work, self-discovery and balanced parenting (for child clients).

In NRI, a comprehensive list of known traumas is made and those are addressed directly and intentionally in a systematic way. The trauma memories are reworked from a right-brain format to a left-brain format that includes all the aspects of the instinctual trauma response. The trauma memories are given order, verbal coding, historical context and an objective, third person view that protects the client from re-experiencing the trauma and fosters the client’s capacity for empathy for himself and others. The client’s strengths are examined in order to help the client see the truth about himself.

More about treatment

Our intensive outpatient programs provide clients with a means of addressing the roots of a myriad of difficulties in a brief and effective manner. In the one or two weeks of treatment, each person receives individualized treatment based on his or her specific past circumstances and present symptoms and challenges.

Throughout the time of treatment past traumatic events are strategically processed so that they are experienced as past. Integration work affords clients a much greater ability to choose behaviors, situations and circumstances through a positive sense of self.

We use a multimedia approach in order to help clients express themselves. For victims of trauma, this can be a much easier way to communicate than by merely using words. However, in no way does someone need to be an artist to participate in this program. Usually, our clients are not artists at all and neither are we.
