Arizona Young Adult Trauma Recovery

Home / Arizona Young Adult Trauma Recovery

Many studies have linked trauma to addictive behavior in young adults. The addiction to drugs or alcohol may begin as an attempt to quiet emotions or to withdraw from a general perception of danger. In both young men and young women, trauma may be a response to significant loss or the result of being emotionally unprepared for life’s stresses at a particular point in time. Clients seeking addiction rehab at Elm Tree Recovery complete a psychodynamic life story, which helps us pinpoint trauma and its contributing factors. Our fully certified clinical team is then able to address the core issues of our clients’ trauma and addiction.

Overlapping Symptoms of Addiction & Trauma

Behaviors exhibited by young adults with substance addictions may mask or overlap signs of PTSD or hidden trauma. These include:

  • Inability to regulate emotions & impulses
  • Poor concentration
  • Heightened sense of stress
  • Isolation
  • Depression
  • Detachment
  • Dissociation
  • Tendency for self-harm

Simultaneous Treatment of Trauma & Substance Use

The sophisticated clinical staff at Elm Tree Recovery understands the interplay between addiction and trauma. Young adults with undiagnosed trauma are at risk of addiction relapse unless both the trauma and the addiction are addressed at the same time. Our master’s level therapists are trained and certified in clinical treatment for the emotional, physical and sexual trauma that contribute to addiction. Our goal is to help clients achieve a sense of personal empowerment so that they can establish authentic relationships and maintain safe, sober and meaningful lives. Elm Tree trauma recovery employs innovative techniques and modalities like these:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • EMDR (eye movement desensitization & reprocessing)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy

  • Mindfulness-based relapse prevention
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Vocational support with the matrix model
