Trauma comes in all different forms. It impacts people from all walks of life. When it happens, no matter the circumstances, it changes the way we think, how we see the world, and function within it. Addiction-related trauma occurs when a person suffers some type of trauma brought on by addiction. When this happens, it may push you towards mental health struggles, including depression. It will not go away until you professionally manage it. At Viewpoint Dual Recovery Center, we can help you with that.
What Is Addiction-Related Trauma?
Addiction and trauma are two very different things. Both create long-lasting changes in the way the brain functions. In some situations, a person with addiction lashes out or otherwise hurts someone else, creating trauma to that individual. For others, addiction-related trauma occurs when you are using drugs or alcohol yourself and suffer trauma at the hands of others, sometimes while high or intoxicated.
That’s not to be confused with situations where you’ve been exposed to intense trauma – such as abuse – and use drugs or alcohol to manage the trauma itself.
In all of these situations, two big things need to be managed: the addiction itself and the trauma. Dual diagnosis recovery is the foundation of this. It is not possible to treat one component of this condition without also facing the other.
