Silvermist, an addiction treatment facility serving young adults in western Pennsylvania, recently released their latest e-book, Trauma-Informed Addiction Treatment and Research-Based Interventions.
This e-book offers a detailed examination of the connection between trauma and substance abuse and the need for trauma-informed addiction treatment. Trauma-Informed Addiction Treatment and Research-Based Interventions is available for free as a downloadable, fully illustrated PDF on Silvermist’s website at silvermistrecovery.com/ebooks/.
This e-book covers the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, the relationship between trauma and substance abuse, an overview of research-based interventions for trauma-informed treatment and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's six key principles of a trauma-informed approach.
An estimated 70 percent of Americans over age 18 have experienced at least one traumatic event in their lifetime, and a history of trauma is an important risk factor for substance abuse and addiction. When trauma leads to substance abuse, successful recovery must address the trauma and reduce its impact on mood, mental health, sleep, emotions and well-being.
To accomplish this, a trauma-informed approach to treatment is essential. This approach to treatment involves ongoing training for treatment staff, who learn how to respond appropriately to symptoms of trauma in order to prevent re-traumatization and ensure that clients with a history of trauma feel safe, supported and empowered.
Located in beautiful rural Pennsylvania, Silvermist offers individualized inpatient and outpatient treatment for adults with substance use and mental health disorders.
