Trauma & PTSD support in addiction treatment

At Marworth, we recognize the connection between addiction and trauma, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Statistics tell us trauma survivors are at increased risk for substance abuse and that addicts are more likely to have complex trauma histories. To address this, Marworth delivers an integrated approach for individuals who are also trauma survivors through targeted support groups

Trauma survivors with an addiction often contend with the following obstacles:

  • Difficulty managing stress
  • Difficulty connecting with others
  • Feeling unsafe
  • Flashbacks or recurrent dreams
  • Disassociation
  • Sense of blame to self or others
  • Inability to remember key aspects of trauma
  • Grief
  • Survivor's guilt

Because it is common for PTSD to go undetected in early recovery, our outpatient addiction treatment program also offers substantial trauma support through Seeking Safety: Trauma and PTSD Support Groups which focus on important topics such as:

  • Grounding skills
  • Asking for help
  • Boundaries
  • Recovery thinking
  • Anger and trauma

 

Call Marworth at 800-442-7722 to speak with an admissions counselor. You can enroll in an addiction rehab program yourself or refer someone else for treatment. Many individuals are referred to Marworth by a family member, family doctor, therapist, employer, employee assistance program, insurance provider, clergy, community organization, or another drug and alcohol rehab center.
