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.
