people at a trauma therapy programUnfortunately, in many cases, trauma goes hand in hand with mental health and substance abuse disorders. Individuals who have lived through a traumatic event in the past are significantly more likely to turn to substances to cope. This attempt to self-medicate can lead to tolerance and dependence. In particular, many women who seek substance abuse treatment have faced abuse or trauma in the past. Furthermore, many adolescents who begin using drugs or alcohol also struggle with trauma and abuse. They’re also far more likely to abuse drugs abuse alcohol, which can quickly spiral into addiction as well as exacerbate underlying mental health disorders. We provide a trauma treatment program at our mental health treatment center to help these individuals move past these harmful events and away from addiction.

We realize that treatment programs that address both the mental health or substance abuse disorder and the underlying trauma will be more effective in providing long-term recovery. As a result, at Harmony Hills, we address underlying trauma with a variety of clinical interventions. These treatment methods go a long way toward allowing individuals to live healthier and more productive lives. Don’t let your trauma keep you back from your future.

What Is a Trauma Therapy Program?

When you come to our treatment program, our treatment specialists will sit down to discuss your past with you, including a comprehensive assessment of your personal and medical history. We’ll use this conversation as a basis for your treatment plan. One of the treatment options that we may decide to use is our trauma therapy program. By learning each individual’s personal history from them and getting a complete medical history, our team of experts can offer therapeutic options geared towards specific needs.

At Harmony Hills, we understand that your past may have influenced your maladaptive behaviors. As a result, we strive to provide healing treatments that will help you overcome your past and live a life free of the barriers of trauma. Similarly, individuals can experience trauma in the recent past as well and have it affect their decision-making, personal, and professional lives. Through trauma therapy, individuals learn how to identify causes and triggers of trauma, then how to cope with this experience in a healthy manner before learning the skills necessary to overcome it. 

Using a Trauma Therapy Program in Dual Diagnosis Treatment

In many cases, trauma can lead to other mental health conditions besides addiction, such as PTSD, depression, or anxiety. If you do not seek treatment for each of these conditions simultaneously, you may find yourself returning to substance use after treatment. As such, dual diagnosis treatment becomes a critical treatment approach. We use our trauma therapy program and other therapeutic strategies to simultaneously address your addiction and mental health disorders during dual diagnosis treatment. As a result of dual diagnosis treatment, you may find it easier to move forward into a happier and healthier life. Our dual diagnosis treatment program can address a range of conditions, including:

  • Anxiety
