Research demonstrates a strong link between exposure to traumatic events and substance use.
Many people who have experienced traumatic events turn to drugs or alcohol to numb their pain and escape bad memories. Sadly, drugs and alcohol are not a solution. In fact, they create traumatic experiences of their own, trapping victims in a vicious cycle.
Wolf Creek recognizes the relationship between substance use and traumatic experiences, and we provide a variety of opportunities for clients to explore this trauma and work through it in a productive manner. This doesn’t mean that the traumatic memories disappear, but rather that clients learn how to cope with them in a healthier way.
