Treating Trauma


Treating Trauma in Alcohol and Drug Rehab Sadly, many of life's events can lead to individuals experiencing trauma in some form. Trauma can involve a number of things including actual or threatened events that affect a person's safety or life, events experienced or witnessed that can have an impact (Terrorist attacks, natural disasters, military service, etc.), having been personally abused or witnessed abuse (physical, mental, sexual), or having experienced a death of a loved one (grief). People dealing with traumatic experiences, such as emotional and psychological trauma, will turn to anything for a reprieve from their feelings and for many of us this is drugs and/or alcohol.

When dealing with trauma and substance abuse, the risk factor and existence of co-occurring mental health or mood disorders, like a form of depression, anxiety and even Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can be present. Studies also indicate that individuals already dealing with substance abuse and chemical dependence experience more traumatic events than non-users. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration strongly recommends drug treatment programs bring to light trauma in treating mental health and substance use disorders.

We have gone to great lengths to create the right environment for your rehabilitation from alcohol and other drugs. Comfort in drug or alcohol treatment reduces stress but more importantly it reduces distraction. We want our clients focused on the task at hand.

Trauma treatment rests on the shoulders of our experienced and sophisticated clinical team, which is made up of Master's level therapists that work individually with our residents. Due to the sensitive nature of some traumatic experiences, the approach to therapy is personal, and private. With the supportive environment of substance abuse treatment, residents can come to terms with their substance problems and find answers for their more deeply rooted underlying struggles. All of this is carried out within a professional, compassionate and healing environment.

Other mental health concerns may also require treatment during an alcohol or drug rehab stay. Our program is proficient at treating co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis, and in fact we have a reputation for being able to handle complex cases.
