Trauma Resolution Therapy
A traumatizing or life-threatening event can be detrimental to a person’s psychiatric state and can lead to chronic feelings of stress and anxiety. Often, in order to internally manage these symptoms, individuals will turn to a substance as a coping mechanism. Once a person becomes entangled in this cycle, it becomes increasingly difficult to break free and recover from the trauma while also letting go of the substance being abused.
In order to recover from the trauma while preventing future substance abuse, the source of the trauma must be recognized and confronted. This will allow the individual to acknowledge their feelings so that they can begin to receive guidance on methods to cope with it healthily and without the use of substances.
Trauma can be induced through various environmental circumstances. The most consistently observed cases result from abusive or violent relationships, disregard and neglect, and psychological or emotional strain. The need for addressing the source of trauma is crucial in preventing any further psychological and physical damage. When left unchecked, the stress of traumatic situations can further develop into a mental illness called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
