ABUSE & TRAUMA
Symptoms of substance abuse or addiction can mask symptoms of mental illness, and symptoms of mental illness can be confused with symptoms of addiction. To be effective, both disorders must be treated at the same time, in the same place, by the same treatment team.
Healing Psychological Wounds
Trauma and abuse create psychological wounds from our feelings of being frightened, threatened, or distressed. Abuse and trauma can leave people with feelings of anxiety, fear, irritability, agitation, guilt, shame, and self-blame, and many often experience insomnia and have difficulty concentrating. Furthermore, individuals can often sink deeper into substance abuse as a way to copy with their trauma and abuse. Our treatment options provide you with strategies to cope and function effectively in your daily life, without drugs and alcohol. There is no normal way to handle trauma or abuse, and each patient is treated uniquely.
