Unresolved trauma can impact emotional regulation, interpersonal communication, physical health, and even familial relationships. When these issues become too difficult to cope with, many women resort to substance use and other forms of self-harm. Experiences of trauma, especially when childhood abuse is involved, can lead to a range of mental health disorders, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression. When trauma leads to substance misuse, it is essential to find a treatment program to address the addiction, trauma, and other psychological concerns. Women are at particularly high risk of developing a substance use disorder when they have experienced physical and/or sexual trauma. In order to help women move past these issues, The Willows at Red Oak Recovery® offers comprehensive trauma therapy and addiction therapy services that can help.
WHAT IS TRAUMA THERAPY?
Trauma therapy is designed to help women dealing with unresolved trauma from events like childhood abuse, rape, and domestic violence. Many women who have experienced past traumatic events carry that pain and damage into their adulthood. Unresolved trauma can lead to mental health issues like PTSD, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, anger management problems, and more.
Women in treatment at The Willows at Red Oak Recovery® can take part in a range of trauma therapy programming, including group therapy, individual counseling sessions, and alternative therapies. By participating in these types of holistic activities along with traditional addiction therapy services, women can begin to rebuild their stress-management skills and cope with past trauma head-on.
