Many individuals who suffer from addiction have also experienced significant trauma in their lives. The trauma may have occurred prior to the development of the addiction or after. Sometimes the trauma occurred just once, and other times it has been an ongoing.
Our group therapy for the treatment of trauma focuses on both the unique and shared experiences of the individuals in the group. Cultivating a sense of safety through the processing of experiences, developing new coping strategies, and creating plans for safety are some of the goals of the group.
