For many individuals who struggle with addiction, trauma and substance use issues are inextricably linked.

At Coalition Recovery, we offer evidence-based therapies in order to help our clients heal more fully from addiction. Our trained and experienced team members will support you every step of the way as you work towards sustainable, lasting recovery.

In trauma therapy, clients learn more about themselves and how trauma may have shaped their responses and actions. Learn more about this and our other addiction treatment therapies by contacting Coalition Recovery today at 888.707.2873.

The Connection Between Trauma and AddictionVan participates in trauma therapy program

Trauma is a response to distressing or disturbing events. These events might include:

  • Abuse
  • Natural disasters
  • Illness
  • Loss
  • Neglect
  • Car accidents
  • Military combat

Many people who have been through traumatic experiences face challenges with their self-esteem, their mental health, and their behavior. Trauma affects every individual differently and can be destructive. Post-traumatic stress disorder, also known as PTSD, is a disorder that can result from unprocessed trauma. Depression, anxiety, and flashbacks can be common symptoms. For some, drugs and alcohol become a way to cope with these symptoms.

While substance use can provide short-term relief, it can actually exacerbate the symptoms of PTSD in the long run. The experiences that individuals have while using drugs or alcohol can also be traumatic, further compounding the situation.

However, trauma therapy can help. At Coalition Recovery, we take a trauma-informed approach to everything we do. We help our clients learn how trauma may have impacted them without forcing them to relive the traumatic experience.

What Is Trauma Therapy?

In sessions with an experienced therapist, clients will address and resolve past trauma. During these sessions, clients will identify the traumatic experiences they have faced. The therapist will encourage them to reframe their thinking around this experience and communicate about it more effectively.

Then, they can build healthy coping skills to deal with stress, the symptoms of PTSD, and other challenges in a healthy way.

Trauma therapy can help clients:

  • Process past experiences
  • Improve their self-esteem
  • Build healthier relationships
  • Avoid relapse

Coalition Recovery offers dual diagnosis treatment, which means that those who struggle with mental health issues alongside addiction can address both at the same time in our programs. This approach helps our clients maintain sobriety even when faced with feelings of depression or anxiety. For those with PTSD, trauma therapy can be an invaluable part of recovery.

Lasting sobriety is possible. We incorporate therapies that are evidence-based as well as holistic to help our clients heal in body, mind, and spirit. Don’t hesitate–reach out today to begin your journey to your best self.
