ADDICTION COUPLED WITH TRAUMATIC STRESS SYMPTOMS CAN BE ESPECIALLY COMPLEX.
Many trauma sufferers turn to alcohol and other drugs to manage negative symptoms associated with trauma exposure such as nightmares, anxiety, insomnia, and dissociation. But once drug use stops, the client is left to face the traumatic memories. Effective treatment for addiction and trauma disorders requires an integrated approach that addresses the co-occurring conditions in a comprehensive way.
Keynote Speaker Stephanie S. Covington, Ph.D., L.C.S.W., co-director of the Institute for Relational Development and the Center for Gender and Justice, is a nationally recognized clinician, author, and lecturer and a pioneer in the field of women’s issues, addiction, and recovery. She is the author of numerous books and curricula, including Beyond Trauma, Women and Addiction, and A Woman’s Way through the Twelve Steps.
Marvin D. Seppala, M.D., chief medical officer at Hazelden, is a foremost authority in addiction medicine. He has authored or co-authored numerous books for clinicians and consumers alike, including Prescription Painkillers: History, Pharmacology and Treatment, Pain-Free Living for Drug-Free People, and When Painkillers Become Dangerous. He also authored the definitive Clinician’s Guide to the Twelve Step Principles.
