Specialized Trauma Treatment for Those Suffering With Addiction
Trauma is unfortunately more common than we might think, and is one of the most common factors that contributes to addiction and substance abuse. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), in particular, is a type of mental health disorder that sees patients struggling with grief, anxiety, fear, and depression daily or when faced with certain unavoidable circumstances. This untreated mental affliction often causes people to turn to self-medication to help make their symptoms more tolerable.
Neuro Psychiatric Addiction Clinic provides specialized trauma treatment to help individuals like you or a loved one who are experiencing addiction for this reason. Those struggling with unresolved trauma require unique attention and specialized care from mental health professionals who can safely help them explore and alleviate these issues while providing the sensitive touch necessary to avoid triggering harmful feelings that can hurt recovery and cause a potential relapse.
What is Trauma and What Causes It?
Trauma is a natural bodily response to an intense or disturbing event that leaves a lasting impression on the psyche. It can manifest itself in varying ways, but most commonly sees individuals unable to manage their emotions. They will likely experience a heightened stress reaction to everyday things, and will also likely experience feelings of anxiety and depression.
Traumatic events are understood to cause actual chemical changes that affect brain function. Studies are still ongoing to truly understand the nature of trauma and how our brain processes emotional responses to certain events.
With that said, victims of trauma can be anyone around us, including you. It’s important to remember that you are not to blame for your trauma, nor are you responsible for mental impact it has on you. However, it’s essential that you seek help as soon as possible, especially if you are currently struggling with addiction or suspect that you are vulnerable to substance abuse.

What Are the Signs of Trauma?
There are many common signs of trauma that can help you determine if you or someone you love is suffering from trauma and is vulnerable to addiction.
Victims may go from once being happy and carefree to displaying frequent negative moods and exhibit a negative pattern of thinking. They tend to be on guard, aggressive in the face of mild problems, and altogether avoid places, people, or activities that they used to participate in.
However, not all victims of trauma necessarily display the signs obviously. You might notice that your loved one is drinking more, smoking more, or hiding the use of dangerous drugs. If you suspect any of these signs, it’s essential that you reach out to the person with compassion and be willing to listen to their problems. If they have experienced a traumatic event, don’t hesitate to reach out to NPAC to get them specialized trauma treatment that can allow them to move toward a better life and keep addiction at bay.
