Seeking Safety with Steps Recovery Centers
Are you or a loved one struggling with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or another trauma disorder accompanied by drug and alcohol abuse? Steps Recovery Centers can be a place of solace and healing. We understand the hardship that comes after having experienced one or many traumatic occurrences and its toll on an individual’s mental health. It’s not uncommon for those struggling with PTSD to turn to drugs and alcohol to numb or cover up the mental anguish they are experiencing. This behavior can easily turn into some form of toxic substance abuse that can ultimately put your life in danger. If you or someone you know is hurting, we can help.
The term “seeking safety” comes from the book Seeking Safety: A Treatment Manual for PTSD and Substance Abuse written by Lisa M. Najavits. In her book, she breaks down how someone experiencing PTSD and drug or alcohol abuse can be detrimental to a person’s mental health. The point of this manual is to help those with PTSD understand that it is so necessary for them to seek safety from their past traumatic experiences and any self-harm, whether it involves substance abuse or not. With our comprehensive trauma therapy services, we take notes from this guide as we will teach you safe coping skills that can help you overcome both PTSD and drug and alcohol addiction-related disorders.
