Trauma Therapy for Mental Health & Substance Abuse

When examining the value of trauma therapy in addiction treatment, it's first necessary to comprehend the link between substance misuse and mental health. Mental health issues and addiction frequently have a positive feedback connection, which means that the outcome of one reaction causes another to intensify. To put it another way, an early traumatic event may lead to an individual self-medicating their psychological/emotional symptoms, leading to a substance use disorder (SUD) that exacerbates the trauma disorder's symptoms.

Individuals with PTSD may feel that numbing the symptoms of sympathetic nervous system dysregulation that occurs in reaction to trauma may be accomplished by taking drugs and alcohol. In the mammalian brain, when humans are traumatized, the brain shuts down all non-essential processes and activates the sympathetic nervous system. The brain produces stress hormones and activates the flight or fight reaction (or, in some cases, the freeze and fawn response) to protect ourselves. This reaction lasts longer than it should in the case of PTSD and trauma-related illnesses, resulting in a variety of mental health symptoms.

What is Trauma Focused Therapy?

Trauma therapy is a sort of treatment that can help you deal with the physical, emotional, and psychological impacts of a traumatic event. Trauma-focused therapy is a type of psychotherapy that identifies and highlights how a traumatic event affects a person's mental, behavioral, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being.

Patients with mental health issues are more likely to have encountered trauma or a traumatic incident in the past, which might influence substance usage. Domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, military combat, car accidents, natural disasters, life-threatening illnesses, fetal trauma, industrial accidents, prolonged neglect, and even verbal abuse can all result in negative thoughts, feelings, and conditions that are long-term symptoms of trauma-related mental illnesses.

Cherry Hill Addiction Treatment Trauma Therapy Program

All In Solutions Counseling Center Cherry Hill has developed programs to help those suffering from trauma and PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) develop coping skills and pave a positive path towards long-term recovery. Frequently, mental health, substance abuse, and trauma have to be treated simultaneously to achieve tremendous success at long-term sobriety and mental stability. Emotional health is one of the most important factors of influence towards success in recovery. Therefore, considering emotional health, addressing underlying issues derived from post-traumatic events and single case instances can lead to more positive success rates.

Trauma-focused treatment may assist patients because research shows that it can remodel communication pathways inside the brain to counteract the consequences of trauma. By linking memories to decrease a fear-based reaction to a regulated, calm, and controlled style of life, this can dramatically alleviate many emotional, behavioral, and physical challenges connected with a single, multiple, or complex trauma event.

The trauma treatment program at All In Solutions Counseling Center helps individuals realize their greatest potential by treating difficulties on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Dana Barnes, LAC, NCC, CCTP, is a trauma therapist who knows the delicate nature of coping with difficult memories. In an unconditionally supportive and sympathetic atmosphere, clients are enabled to confront the darkness that has formed their lives. Overcoming these difficulties is the only way to achieve real freedom and inner serenity.

To promote mindfulness and reduce PTSD symptoms, cognitive processing treatment and narrative therapy are combined. Clients awaken to their power over the events that have influenced them by growing awareness of their emotions, thoughts, sensory information, and bodily reactions. All In Solutions offers additional holistic treatment programs including yoga, reiki, faith based recovery, and more.
