Coping strategies that don't end well

Addiction is a pleasure seeking strategy to deal with pain. Yet addiction ends up causing more pain than the pain that it tries to run from. An integrative approach to addiction is essential. Addiction is hard to beat once the brain is wired to seek it out when life gets hard. We use a multimodal integrative approach that addresses the individual and the social context in which the individual lives. We promote connection to heal addiction.

We Treat Addiction

Do you play video games, surf the web, or use social media for more than 2 hours per day? Are you ashamed of your porn use but can't stop? Are you isolating, losing sleep, or less effective at life tasks? Have people told you that you may have a problem? Do you find yourself lying despite knowing that it is wrong?

Trauma

Everyone hurts and everyone is wounded. Philo the Greek once wrote, “be nice for everyone is fighting a great battle.” Trauma is an all too common form of wounding. Trauma occurs when a person is overwhelmed by a single event or many events over time. Their capacity to cope has been exceeded as they are in a state of extreme stress. Trauma impacts our mental health, relationships, and physical health. It has been linked to diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.

Trauma comes in many forms. There is big ’T’ Trauma which are the one time events of tragedy that people experience or witness, such as a car crash, combat, natural disaster, or a moment of emotional or physical abuse. Big ’T’ Trauma can result in clinical diagnoses such as PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder) and ASD (acute stress disorder). Little ’t’ traumas are the repetitive, death by a thousand cuts, experiences that build up over time. These traumas can lead to clinical diagnoses as well such as anxiety or mood disorders and OTRS (ongoing traumatic relationship syndrome).

Trauma is a risk factor in most behaviors health and substance use disorders. It is essential to rule out or address in all mental health treatment. Some studies show that over 90% of people seeking psychotherapy have experienced trauma. The National Council on Behavioral Health estimated that 70% of adults in the U.S. have experienced some form of trauma at least once in their lives.
