PRLog - Aug. 14, 2014 - FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Addiction often goes hand in hand with trauma and depression. As we saw this week with the death of Robin Williams, underlying depression and trauma can lead to relapse. At Gabel Center, a private rehab facility located in Fort Myers Beach, they have tailored their programming to treat the underlying trauma and depression their clients face.

One of the innovative ways they accomplish this is through a remarkable approach called Rapid Resolution Therapy. The center’s trauma specialist, Mark Chidley, is one of only a handful of practitioners nationwide to use the modality.
“We are thrilled to be able to give our clients access to this amazing modality that has proven incredibly effective at treating trauma and depression, two huge underlying factors for many that suffer from addiction”, says Jerry Bowling, CEO of Gabel Center.
“What Robin Williams’ tragic death reminded us is of the importance of working on the underlying issues that so often compound addictive disorders”, says Ana Peana, M.S., LMHC, Operations Director at the center. “We cannot simply treat the physical elements of the addiction, we must treat what drives the addiction, and Rapid Resolution Therapy is a big part of that”.
Gabel Center offers intensive day/night treatment, as well as outpatient options. The center launched a first of its kind program aimed at helping veterans called Warrior’s Refuge earlier this year. You can find out more about the Gabel Center by calling 1-800-679-0026 or going to
