Trauma Informed Addiction Treatment for Residents of Cincinnati 

If you have never suffered from an addiction to drugs or alcohol, you may be under the mistaken impression that addiction is simply a choice. When a person chooses not to drink or consume drugs anymore, their life will be miraculously changed and they will be able to regain the value of it. However, what many people overlook is the fact that addiction is not a choice, it’s a disease that can infest every aspect of your life. As a result of this reality, it’s imperative that you reach out for help in working through this disease. The Source Treatment Center provides our clients with a myriad of treatment options that can help them to do just that. At The Source, we hold to the fact that addiction develops as a result of experiencing some form of trauma. Once you address your severe trauma, you will be in a better position to remain sober and healthy for the rest of your life. 

If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, call The Source today.  Our treatment specialists are available 24/7 to discuss your options and help you find the perfect solution (800) 204-0418.

Addiction Treatment That Gets to the Root Cause of Addiction 

Therapy is the most helpful tool for any person to use when they are ready to overcome their addiction. There are many people who have a clear understanding of the root cause of their addiction. For some people, the root cause of addiction is something that is easily identifiable. It may be something that happened during their childhood or even their adulthood that was never addressed through therapy. In turn, it’s something that manifests in that person. When that person does not receive the correct type of care or help that they need, they may turn to drugs or alcohol as a way to numb what they are feeling. 


Other people who come to The Source have no idea what the root cause of their addiction may be. They may require different therapeutic techniques in order for them to truly identify the cause of their addiction. One of the ways that The Source stands out from other treatment facilities is that we offer several different types of trauma based therapy. Some of the examples include: 

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy 
  • Trauma Incident Reduction Therapy 
  • Rapid Resolution Therapy 

What is Trauma Based Therapy Like? 

As addiction experts, one of the most popular questions that we receive revolves around what a person can expect during the time that they will spend in trauma based therapy. As the name indicates, the focus of trauma based therapy will be to help you to work through the pain of the different traumatic events that you may have experienced during your life. This way these events no longer negatively impact your sobriety going forward. Although it’s true that trauma based therapy can be painful at times, it’s critical in helping you through this stage of your recovery. 

It’s important to understand that trauma based therapy is not the only form of therapy that we offer at The Source. Other forms of therapy that you will experience include: 

Family therapy 

Sadly, addiction can impact more than just you. Your family may be negatively impacted by your addiction which can cause them to move further away from you when it comes to your relationship. Family therapy can be incredibly helpful when it comes to putting these important relationships back together again. Family therapy will take place when you come to a place in your treatment where you are ready for it and it will happen in such a way so that every member of your family feels comfortable. 

Individual therapy 

During individual therapy, you will meet in a one-on-one format with your treatment team. This can give you the opportunity to talk about personal events in your life that may have impacted your sobriety but you don’t feel comfortable talking about them in a group setting. Individual therapy also gives you the chance to touch base with your recovery team to ensure that you’re still on the right treatment path in your journey. 

Group therapy 

Group therapy closely resembles Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings in the sense that you will have the opportunity to listen to and share your experiences regarding addiction and recovery. Group therapy allows you to start to build your system of support which is something that is critical in your overall recovery journey. You will come to find that there are other people in your group that have shared similar experiences as you which is something that can help you to feel more comfortable with the recovery steps that you’re taking. 

When you will participate in therapy the number of hours that you spend in therapy will depend on the treatment plan that you select. A partial hospitalization program, for example, comes with the requirement of spending 25 hours per week in therapy whereas outpatient programs are much more flexible. An intensive outpatient program requires nine hours of therapy per week whereas a general outpatient program requires just four.
