Best Addiction and Trauma Treatment Center In Orange County
It is common for people who suffer from addiction to also experience some sort of psychological or emotional distress that has been triggered by past traumatic events. While drug and alcohol abuse may temporarily mask the pain, it doesn’t resolve the underlying issue.
At Anaheim Lighthouse, we can help you in dealing with deep-seated emotional trauma, particularly as it relates to substance abuse. Our program is designed to give you the tools needed to take back control over your life. We will work with you on the issues that have led to your substance abuse so that it no longer controls your life. We want you to be happy, healthy, and free of pain from your traumatic past so you can live fully in the present moment without fear or regret.
How does trauma lead to addiction?
Trauma and addiction are both deeply entrenched issues that the individual struggles with. Throughout our years of experience at Anaheim Lighthouse, we have discovered that trauma and addiction often go hand in hand.
Many scientific studies have also found that while addiction is not always a response to trauma, it can be influenced by the traumatic experience. According to surveys of adolescents who were receiving substance abuse treatment, over 70% of the respondents had a history of trauma exposure. These traumatic experiences could lead to an increased vulnerability to addiction.
In order to treat either trauma or addiction optimally, it’s best to do so within an integrated program. This means incorporating all aspects of life into the treatment approach rather than just focusing on one aspect of the problem. Trauma can affect many different aspects of a person’s life. By providing comprehensive care, this can help result in a more holistic recovery.
Anaheim Lighthouse Trauma Focus Program
The Trauma Focus Program at Anaheim Lighthouse offers a unique approach to treating both addiction and trauma simultaneously. We focus on resolving issues related to childhood neglect and/or abuse, PTSD, and other traumatic experiences while at the same time, helping you achieve sobriety. We will work closely with you and your family members to develop a treatment plan that will meet your individual needs.
Getting to the root of emotional trauma can be a daunting experience that requires time and trust. Our counselors and therapists work tirelessly to build your confidence and trust. Plus, the workshops and counseling we provide for trauma and addiction go beyond the usual “talk therapy.” Our trauma therapy specialist uses experiential techniques to help you resolve your emotional issues while treating the addiction that has resulted from using alcohol or drugs to self-medicate.
Aside from individual therapy, our program also includes meditation groups, peer group work, art therapy, therapeutic recreation, psycho-educational groups, EMDR therapy, yoga, and medication management if necessary. The result is a holistic approach that can help you recover in body, mind and spirit so you can live a happy life free of substance abuse.
