Trauma Informed Addiction Treatment and Therapy
Trauma-informed men’s rehab at Arrowhead Lodge Recovery integrates a variety of strategies to provide an effective addiction rehab. We create individual treatment programs according to the needs of each client. Treatment begins with a detailed assessment; including attention to possible trauma in the client’s history and trauma-related symptoms.
Multiple assessments are used to track the client’s progress and to adjust treatment. A trauma-informed and problem-solving approach assures that all clients are treated with attention to their strengths and needs.
This increases self-esteem, decreases anxiety and greatly improves relationship issues. Resolution of trauma issues provides a lasting inner peace and greatly assists in maintaining sobriety.
Addiction and Trauma
Addiction and trauma disorders are closely linked. Alcohol and other drugs are commonly used to “self-medicate” against negative symptoms associated with trauma.
These may include:
- Recurrent, unwanted distressing memories of the traumatic event
- Reliving the traumatic event as if it were happening again (flashbacks)
- Upsetting dreams about the traumatic event
- Severe emotional distress or physical reactions to anything that reminds of the event
- Irritability, angry outbursts or aggressive behavior
- Continually being on guard for danger
- Overwhelming guilt or shame
- Self-destructive behavior, such as drinking too much or driving too fast
- Trouble concentrating
- Being easily startled or frightened
Some specialized areas of Arrowhead Lodge Recovery trauma treatment include:
- CTT – Certified Trauma Therapist
- EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
- SEP – Somatic Experiencing Practitioner
For clients who suffer from trauma, Arrowhead Lodge Recovery provides group and individual counseling by licensed therapists who are certified and trained in multiple trauma therapies.
