Substance Use Disorders and trauma often goes hand-in-hand. Individuals often "medicate" trauma induced symptoms like anxiety, insomnia, guilt, shame, fear, irritability, etc. with alcohol and drugs. Treating Substance Use Disorders and trauma simultaneously is vital to successful recovery. At Aspire we utilize therapeutic approaches like EMDR to address trauma in a holistic and responsible way and avoid re-traumatizing and eliminate trauma-related symptoms.
