Trauma-Informed Therapy

Treating the Root Causes of Addiction

Trauma-Informed Addiction Treatment & Therapy

Trauma-informed therapy is an approach to psychotherapy treatment that focuses on evaluating and engaging a client’s past trauma and accounting for its impact on their lives. This can include childhood trauma, or trauma experienced later in life. Here at Spirit Mountain Recovery, we take a trauma-informed approach to help heal the root causes of substance abuse so our clients can achieve long-term, sustainable recovery.

What is Trauma? How Does It Happen?

Trauma can include any event that has a long-lasting, negative impact on a person. Common examples of traumatic events include:

While those are common examples of events people may consider traumatic, it is important to remember that every person may handle trauma differently. Trauma is not an event; rather, trauma is how a person handles these events.

Finding Healing in the Chaos

What to Expect During Trauma-Informed Therapy?

Trauma-informed therapy goes beyond treating a single symptom or issue. Rather, trauma specialists work to identify the trauma often at the center of other disorders, such as depression, anxiety, or substance abuse. While some may believe that trauma is not at the center of most mental health conditions, it is vital to remember how common trauma is. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimates that two out of three children will experience at least one major traumatic event before they turn 16. Those numbers do not even account for the many individuals who then experience trauma later in life.

Due to how prevalent trauma is, trauma-informed therapy focuses on tailoring treatment to address the specific trauma a client has faced, including each individual’s personal history, triggers, and goals. Intergenerational trauma, or trauma shared between parents and children, will also be explored during this process. The overall goal of trauma-informed therapy is to begin the healing process for the trauma, making recovery easier for any other mental health disorders a person may experience.

Healing the Mind, Body & Spirit

How Can Trauma-Informed Therapy Aide Recovery?

Trauma-informed therapy can go well beyond the treatment of personal trauma. While trauma-informed treatment can be beneficial to anyone who has experienced a major traumatic event in their lives, it can also be helpful in treating a variety of mental health disorders, including PTSD, depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. For many, trauma is often at the center of many mental health disorders. Even if those individuals seek treatment for a specific condition, if their trauma remains unaddressed, treatment may be more difficult or even impossible to fully recover from. 

At Spirit Mountain Recovery, we take a trauma-informed approach to ensure that every client receives the best possible treatment for their needs and that we establish the best possible foundation for long-term recovery.
