Past traumatic events often lead to substance use as a way to ease the emotional or physical pain. While in treatment, you will need to work through past trauma to identify what contributed to your addiction and reveal any mental health conditions that may have developed. Working through past trauma helps to set the foundation for building a balanced, confident, rejuvenated you.
Childhood trauma can put a person at risk of developing a substance addiction or harmful addictive behavior. Childhood trauma can lead to deeper, more intense psychological trauma. When a child goes through traumatic events without resolve, he or she experiences fear, helplessness, anxiety, and despair that carries over to adulthood.
Childhood trauma can be caused by:
- Physical, sexual, or emotional abuse
- Violent environment
- Loss of a parent
- Serious illness
Working through past trauma helps you understand why you developed an addiction and reveals any mental health conditions that contributed to the addiction. When you identify the cause, you can learn more about yourself and get the right treatment for past trauma and addiction or addictive behavior.
Past trauma leads to depression, anxiety, and fear. Many people turn to drugs or alcohol to cope with distressing feelings from traumatic experiences. Using substances is harmful to your physical and mental health, resulting in addiction and puts you at high risk of overdose or early death.
