Trauma Informed Addiction Treatment for Residents of Norfolk 

Similar to addiction, trauma is something that can impact every person differently. People can experience trauma at nearly every stay of their life. For example, there are countless people who experience trauma when they are in their younger years. Every day there are children all over the county who suffer from physical or psychological abuse from both people that they trust as well strangers. Sadly, childhood abuse is something that can go on for quite some time before something is done about it. During these instances, there can be a substantial amount of harm done to a child in more than one way. Unfortunately, until that child receives the psychological help and cares that they need, they may turn to harmful methods as a way to cope with what they are thinking and feeling.

Trauma can also impact a person later on in life. For example, there are many people who are first responders or who served in the military that experienced several traumas through their selfless dedication. Sadly, there is a common misconception that reaching out for help to manage what you’re thinking and feeling as you go through these experiences is not something that you should actively pursue. However, once again, when you don’t receive the psychological care that you need, it’s possible that you may turn toward drugs or alcohol as a way to manage what you’re experiencing. 

When you’re ready to tackle your addiction, it’s imperative that you connect with a recovery facility that can provide you with the unique level of care that you need and deserve as you begin to work through these traumatic events in your life. This care and consideration is something that you will always find when you decide to partner with The Source Treatment Center. 


Addiction Treatment That Gets to the Root Cause of Addiction 

Identifying and addressing the root cause is a key factor in your overall recovery journey. If this important aspect of your recovery goes unchecked, it’s highly probable that you could fall back into the trap of addiction once you complete your recovery journey. When you work with The Source Treatment Center team, you will have the personalized and hands-on guidance that you need and deserve as you begin to work through these painful events in your life. You will come to see that these events are not something that you need to hang on to for the rest of your life, but they are events that you can learn from and grow from. 



What is Trauma Based Therapy Like? 

Your time in trauma-based therapy can be a double-edged sword at times. There will be certain times that you walk out of trauma-based therapy and you will likely feel incredibly happy and accomplished with the progress that you’ve made in your recovery. However, it’s possible that there may be other sessions where you feel uncomfortable. This is one of the reasons why you should always partner with an experienced team at an addiction treatment facility as you try to grapple with these different aspects of recovery. At The Source, we offer different forms of trauma-based therapy and will work closely with you to determine which form of counseling is best for you. 

It’s important to know that there are also other forms of therapy that will also be included in your overall treatment program. Some examples include: 

Family therapy 

Unfortunately, your relationship with your family is something that tends to suffer when your addiction to drugs or alcohol takes over your life. Your family members start to back away from their relationship with you as a result of your substance abuse simply because their heart hurts seeing you in this type of condition or they have become frustrated by your condition. However, once your family learns that you’re in addiction treatment, there is a possibility that they may be more open to re-establishing a relationship with you. During family therapy, you and your loved ones will have the opportunity to have open and honest communication which can help you to redevelop these relationships again. In turn, you may be able to look to these important people in your life for their support as you take steps toward working through your addiction. 

Group therapy 

Group therapy is something that can help you to understand that you are not the only person that is struggling with an addiction to drugs or alcohol. During group therapy, you will have the opportunity to interact and speak with other people that are working through their own addiction treatment program. Through sharing and listening, you will develop a better understanding of addiction and you may be able to grow and develop your system of support which is key in your long-term addiction treatment. 

Individual therapy 

Since trauma can impact a person so internally, it’s possible that you may not feel comfortable initially sharing your experience in a group environment. Individual therapy allows you to interact with your treatment team so that you can address these events and continue to move forward in your recovery. One of the other fantastic benefits associated with individual therapy is the fact that you can assess your treatment program with your team and make any changes that may need to be made at this time.
