There is increasing scientific evidence that shows the link between trauma, chronic stress, and drug and alcohol addiction. Early childhood trauma often plays a large role as to why people turn to drugs and/or alcohol and many in the grips of addiction experience traumatic events as a result of a high-risk lifestyle. This cycle of chronic stress and addiction can seem paralyzing and there is often no way of recovering from one without dealing with the other.
That’s why Infinite Recovery employs masters-level therapists trained in trauma resolution, pet-assisted therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR),a specialized treatment for healing the brain from trauma. Our physicians and board certified psychiatrists are equipped to handle cases of anxiety and post-traumatic stress and our addiction counselors are well versed in the effect of trauma on addictive patterns. Additionally, groups such as art and dance therapy, yoga, and somatic experiencing are utilized to facilitate healing. Guests suffering from the fallout of traumatic experiences are assessed during intake and assigned to a trauma therapist so they may begin trauma recovery concurrent with addiction treatment.
