Addiction & Trauma
Drugs, alcohol, gambling, internet or other types of addiction typically serve a purpose; to numb or distract from pain. ITTC can work with those at various stages of their recovery adjunctively with drug and alcohol treatment programs. If inpatient treatment has been completed or isn’t necessary, ITTC is able to work addictions as the primary treatment provider as well. We approach addiction in a humane way and view it as a response to trauma. Thus, our goal is to treat underlying traumatic injury to alleviate the need for addictive behavior. Traditional treatment modalities would be employed as well as some progressive approaches, such as Internal Family Systems and EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing).
