Trauma Informed Substance Abuse Treatment at Footprints
Clinical studies of patients in substance abuse treatment programs have shown a high correlation with a client history of trauma. The division between the trauma and substance abuse treatment fields has meant that patients have been forced to bounce back and forth between trauma and substance abuse treatment programs and have been viewed as poor-prognosis.
Common Causes of Trauma
Common causes of trauma can include physical, sexual or mental abuse, childhood neglect, death of a loved one, divorce, rape, war, serious illness, and more. Unfortunately, many adults who have experienced a type of trauma turn to drugs and alcohol to cope.
