Co-treating Addiction and Trauma Disorders at The Cabin London
According to a study published in the Current Psychiatry Reports Journal in 2012, over 50% of individuals seeking addiction treatment meet the criteria for PTS (Post Traumatic Stress). This study also found that individuals with PTSD have a lower success rate in addiction recovery.
The relationship between trauma and addiction has been extensively studied, and it is now recognized that effective treatment for addiction must also address underlying trauma. Without addressing trauma, the chances of relapse are significantly higher. The Cabin has recognized this link and offers a specialized and holistic trauma programme in conjunction with addiction treatment, in accordance with leading addiction experts worldwide.
What is Trauma?
Trauma refers to a deeply distressing or disturbing experience or event that overwhelms an individual’s ability to cope or make sense of what has happened. It can be caused by a single event, such as a natural disaster or a violent attack, or by ongoing, chronic experiences such as abuse or neglect. Trauma can result in a range of physical, emotional, and psychological symptoms, including anxiety, depression, flashbacks, nightmares, and feelings of helplessness and hopelessness.
Trauma and Addiction – What is the Correlation?
Trauma and addiction are often closely linked. Traumatic experiences can lead to the development of addiction, as individuals turn to drugs or alcohol to cope with the emotional pain and distress caused by the trauma. On the other hand, addiction can also lead to traumatic experiences, such as accidents, violence, and legal or financial problems.
Studies have shown that individuals with a history of trauma are more likely to develop addiction and have a higher risk of relapse. This is partly because trauma can cause long-lasting changes in the brain, making it more difficult for individuals to regulate their emotions and cope with stress. It can also lead to symptoms of depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues, which can increase the risk of substance abuse.
Addressing both trauma and addiction simultaneously is crucial for effective treatment and lasting recovery. Trauma-informed care involves creating a safe and supportive environment for individuals to explore and process their traumatic experiences, while also providing evidence-based addiction treatment to help them develop healthy coping mechanisms and prevent relapse.
