"Despite high prevalence rates of trauma among Substance Use Disorder (SUD)/Opiate Use Disorder (OUD) populations, patients seeking treatment for substance use are rarely assessed for trauma or offered trauma-based interventions alongside SUD treatments." (Roberts, Roberts, Jones, Bisson, 2015)
"Literature consistently indicates a high incidence of PTSD and trauma among substance using populations, with lifetime prevalence rates among SUD individuals ranging up to 52%." (Roberts, Roberts, Jones, Bisson, 2015)
"Evidence suggests that the best outcomes occur when treatment approaches include both trauma-focused psychological interventions alongside or combined with treatments for SUD/OUD, otherwise known as parallel and integrative treatment approaches, respectively. Parallel treatment involves the individual delivery of a trauma-focused therapy alongside, but separate from, an evidence-based SUD treatment; this approach is considered most effective." (Fareed, Eilender, Haber, Bremner, Whitfield, & Drexler, 2013; Ecker & Hundt, 2018)
Treating What is Underlying Addiction
Terradyne Wellness Centre offers a unique approach to addiction treatment that aligns with current best practices for SUD treatment. Our trauma-informed, highly trained therapists and social workers work with individuals to address not only the substance use, but everything else that leads the person to use. Here at Terradyne, our trauma therapists use trauma therapy, alongside EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to help achieve best results for recovery.
Clinician's will assess all clients within their first several sessions to determine if they are a good fit for trauma therapy and/or EMDR. Not all individuals will be a good fit. Please inquire for more details.
