Working with addiction = working with trauma.
Treatment providers that don’t address the trauma underlying addictions are only controlling symptoms rather than dealing with the source of the problem.
Being “trauma-informed” is a good start, but not enough. The success rates of addiction treatment are horrendously poor compared to success rates of other conditions. In order to improve treatment quality, the addiction treatment field needs competently trained trauma treatment specialists.
