Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is one of the many causes of drug and alcohol addiction. Recognizing and dealing with past trauma, allows the patient to focus on the process of recovery.

What is trauma?

Trauma is a difficult event which leaves a person feeling severely threatened psychologically, physically or emotionally. At some point in our lives most people will experience a traumatic event. Some examples of traumatic events include a car accident, abuse, a sudden death of a love one, exposure to the violence of war or a violent criminal act and even witnessing a natural disaster. With the support of friends, and family most people often recover from their traumas but for others the effects are long lasting.
