What is Trauma Informed Therapy?

This vital therapy is a cognitive behavioral therapy that brings together the knowledge and understanding of how trauma affects the lives of those it touches. Likewise, it is therapy for behaviors that produce certain triggers. For some, trauma experienced at some point in life makes it difficult to deal with issues that would otherwise not be usually substantive.

Many people with alcohol or drug addiction have a history of trauma. Trauma can also occur as a stand-alone event or repeated over time. Additionally, it can be recent or in the more distant past. Trauma can have a severe impact on the primary victim and on family members, friends and helpers as well. The Simple Path Recovery integrated trauma informed therapy program was created to address the side-effects of trauma and addiction, along with other co-occurring disorders.
