Going through trauma changes your life in many ways. Whether your ordeal happened a long time before your addiction or substance abuse led to your victimization, you need treatment from a dual diagnosis rehab. With this much-needed treatment, you gain lasting trauma and addiction recovery.

Why You Need Trauma and Addiction Recovery

Alignleft Wp Image 5063Your situation of PTSD or trauma and substance abuse is not unusual. According to the National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and the Department of Veterans Affairs, many people in addiction share trauma at the roots of their substance abuse.

Up to 75 percent of people who survive violent trauma or abuse develop an addiction. Among people who survive natural disasters like hurricanes, up to 33 percent fall into an alcohol abuse disorder. Experiencing PTSD dramatically increases your chance of drinking or using drugs.

In trauma, you feel physically and mentally uncomfortable throughout each day. Your abuses or experiences weigh you down like a heavy pack. You carry that pack on your shoulders and in your thoughts at all times. It is no wonder you turned to drinking or using drugs to quiet your mind and feel some escape.

Your trauma causes symptoms unique to you. But many people seeking trauma and addiction recovery show a mix of traits, including:

  • Depression
  • Nightmares and flashbacks
  • Sleeplessness
  • Anxiety
  • Attention problems
  • Mood swings
  • Anger problems

Whatever your traumatic experiences of the past, you need healing. If the trauma is left untreated, you will never gain lasting sobriety. Through a dual diagnosis program, you build the life you only dream about today, one of healed trauma and addiction recovery.

The Right Treatment for Trauma and Addiction Recovery

You know that drinking or abusing drugs no longer provides you with trauma relief. Instead, it adds to your daily burdens. You intended only to escape a little, in the beginning. You need that escape today, but the right kind of flight from this life of substance abuse, addiction, stress, and trauma.

Your dual diagnosis disorder involves at least two co-occurring disorders. The trauma is one and the addiction is the other. Perhaps your trauma easily defines as depression and anxiety because of your past experiences. Maybe you suffer a wide array of symptoms that intertwine.

Your dual diagnosis disorder is unique to you. You also need individualized treatment with the therapies and approaches best suited to your recovery. The therapies you need for trauma and addiction recovery include:

Most of all, mental health treatment in addiction rehab must meet your personal needs. While in an individualized dual diagnosis program, you can gain recovery that can last. You also overcome the trauma that haunts you today.
