Trauma resolution is critical to addiction treatment. Trauma is classified as a distressing or disturbing experience which can have major impacts on one’s wellbeing. The result of traumatic events can stifle one’s sense of peace or self, cause them to distrust others, numb emotions, or feel disconnected. While trauma from childhood experiences is often especially damaging, it can happen at any point during a lifetime. Identifying trauma in addiction treatment creates healing and freedom. When those in recovery understand the sources of their stress and trauma, they are better equipped to stay sober.
Over the last several decades, alcoholism has become a huge concern for military personnel across the United States. Current and former military face an array of challenges – unpredictable deployments, the risk of injury and being away from home. Unfortunately, alcohol is sometimes used as a coping mechanism during these difficult times.
Of the 1.1 million veterans living with a substance disorder, 25% have struggled with illicit drugs, while 80% struggled with alcohol abuse. About 7% of the 1.1 million veterans struggle with both. Veterans aren’t the only military population impacted by substance abuse, active military members are as well.
Outpatient rehabilitation treatment programs are one of the three most popular types of treatment for substance use disorders (SUD). The patient attends treatments at the facility (typically three to five days a week) but returns home to sleep.
Many men and women who are serving or have served in the United States military struggle with addiction. Veterans who have seen combat may have co-occurring disorders, such as depression or post-traumatic stress disorder, in addition to an addiction. We can help.
We are a 501c19 nonprofit Veterans Service Organization, we assist fellow Veterans, the Active Duty Military and their Families in need. As well as provide programs and services within the Communities of Fallbrook/Bonsall/Rainbow/De Luz.
