Fuse Recovery treats clients with mental health trauma, as well as all types of addiction, from shopping to opioid addiction.
SYLVANIA, Ohio – A new trauma center in Sylvania isn’t taking a cookie-cutter approach when it comes to treating addiction.
Fuse recovery, which is located at 2735 N. Holland Sylvania Rd., uses a holistic approach, focusing on treating the whole body, including mind, body and spirit.
The center opened in September and treats clients with mental health trauma, as well as all types of addictions, from shopping to opioid addiction. Instead of training people to deal with their addiction, the center trains clients to heal by opening up their traumatic memories, cleaning them up and then shutting them down.
âWe’re trying to reconnect people with themselves and reconnect them with other people,â said Deann Gossard, clinical director of the center.
Stephanie Kranich from Toledo became a client of the center last year. She is taking EMDR therapy which is used to treat trauma. It represents eye movement, desensitization and retreatment.
“I feel like in a lot of other places a 12 step program has sprouted, whereas here they let you make any program that works for you, so it’s not that simple. than others, âKranich said. “It feels more like a family approach. I feel like everyone here is so involved with their clients.”
All clinicians at the center are trained in EMDR and trauma procedures.
âIt’s a smoother, gentler approach,â said Ashley Thielman, a clinician. “It’s not that someone is morally affected by their choices, but rather that their choices come from somewhere, and how do we fix that and help heal that, because it actually gives a lasting change to the instead of just treating the symptom. “
The center offers individual, in-person and teletherapy therapy, as well as group and family therapy. Therapy is tailored to the client’s individual history and needs.
They offer a variety of traditional therapies, including EMDR, sensorimotor psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, person-centered counseling, and motivational interviewing.
They also offer alternative and innovative therapies such as forest walks, mindfulness and meditation, dance and rage classes, yoga, qigong, gardening and even pet therapy.
