Trauma Support

Supportive interventions for patients with a history of trauma


For many people, a lifelong struggle with drug or alcohol addiction can be traced back to traumatic experiences in the past. The best hope for recovery comes through addressing not only the addiction, but also the pain that has fueled it.

Trauma Experiences

Trauma Experiences

Among those seeking treatment for drug or alcohol addiction, unresolved traumatic experiences can include:

  • Experiencing physical, verbal, or emotional abuse.
  • Experiencing sexual abuse.
  • Experiencing a sudden loss or complicated grief.
  • Witnessing or being a part of violence.
  • Involvement in a traumatic car accident.
  • Receiving a devastating medical diagnosis.

People dealing with trauma often withdraw from others and disconnect. They suffer from anxiety and fear, and are easily startled. Insomnia and nightmares are also common. When trauma is at the root of addiction, it’s critical to find other ways of coping without drugs or alcohol to numb the pain.

Trauma Recovery

Trauma Recovery

Psychological trauma leads to disempowerment and isolation. Trauma recovery is about empowering the survivor and creating new connections. Trauma recovery often unfolds in three stages:

  1. Feeling safe again.
  2. Remembering and mourning.
  3. Reconnecting with everyday life.

In the final stage, patients receive support as they rebuild life in the present, develop new relationships and create a new future for themselves.
