WHAT WE TREAT | TRAUMA RESOLUTION
A trauma is any event an individual encounters that causes a significant amount of pain and/or a disruption to daily living. The disruption may be physical, emotional or relational. Severe or complex trauma interrupts the individual's psychological system. This causes an inability to cope with stressful life situations and can result in unhealthy coping skills such as addiction.
Trauma resolution occurs when the impact of trauma has been reduced and no longer negatively affects the individual. Processing trauma can be done in a number of ways, but most efficiently by use of techniques including EMDR, art therapy, and intensive psychotherapy. At Ashwood Recovery staff members have been trained in the most effective means of trauma resolution and trauma counseling.
Research shows that most forms of addiction and behavioral disorders are related to trauma. Treating the symptoms of these disorders is only so effective and has limited results. Treating the underlying trauma shows improved treatment outcomes and creates superior interpersonal skills. Ashwood Recovery truly understands addiction and similar disorders are complicated and require multi model treatment approaches. Each client is screened for unresolved trauma and appropriates for trauma recovery counseling.
