The field of addiction treatment is ever changing and more and more studies are leaning toward the effectiveness of trauma-informed addictions treatment. If you have a sense that drugs and alcohol have served to help alleviate fear, loss, stress, and emotional pain in your life, then speaking with a trauma-informed therapist may offer you a new perspective regarding the potential for recovery. I've worked with individuals for years who had been in substance abuse treatment multiple times and reported a trauma-informed approach was the most effective treatment, most stating it was the first time they felt a sense they could truly understand the reasons behind their addiction and how to heal.
