The Best Drug I’ve Ever Taken Wasn’t Even a Drug. It Was EMDR Therapy.

Comedian Adam Cayton-Holland, co-creator and star of the truTV series Those Who Can’t, is used to making light of life’s darkest moments. In his first book, Tragedy Plus Time: A Tragi-Comic Memoir, Cayton-Holland recounts one of the most devastating events of his life: the death of his sister, Lydia, who took her own life. In this exclusive excerpt from the book, Cayton-Holland reveals the therapy that helped him recover from the post-traumatic stress disorder he suffered following his sister’s suicide—Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)—and the path toward healing from his family’s loss.
