Addiction Disorders and Trauma Program
Addiction disorders and trauma programs go hand in hand. A trauma program is crucial to the recovery of those addicts that have suffered traumatic events in their lives. Traumatic events can include anything that causes mental and physical injury to a person, and can occur as early as the childhood years. People respond to trauma in different ways; one person could suffer severe effects from a major earthquake, while another could continue to function within the range of normality. The crucial factor is not what happened, but how the person responded to it.
A person’s ability to cope with stressful events depends on three factors: the person’s history, the coping skills learned as a child, and his or her emotion stability at the time of the event. At the Florida House Experience, we treat each patient on a case-by-case basis and individual treatment plans are created for each person who comes through our doors, especially those dealing with trauma.
