Trauma-Informed Care For Addiction Treatment

Substance use disorders, addictive behavior, and other unhealthy coping mechanisms usually develop when someone is struggling to cope with symptoms of trauma, such as painful emotional or physical feelings, nightmares, and flashbacks.

What Is Trauma-Informed Care?

Trauma-informed care, or trauma therapy, aims to treat the psychological impact of trauma and give individuals with the necessary skills and resources to begin healing. Trauma can develop from the death of a loved one, childhood abuse, parental neglect, or experiencing a natural disaster.

Trauma-informed care uses several evidence-based therapy methods that incorporate the scientific knowledge of how the brain processes trauma, aiming to address the symptoms of trauma rather than the trauma experience itself. These approaches help manage symptoms and prevent re-traumatization of patients during their treatment plan. Oasis River Recovery values and uses the six core principles of trauma-informed care laid out by the Substance Abuse and Mental health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

1. Safety

Our treatment program values our patients and healthcare providers' physical and psychological safety.

2. Trustworthiness and transparency

We aim to be transparent about our treatment plans in order to build and maintain trust with our patients.

3. Peer support

Patients with shared experiences are encouraged to share and support each other.

4. Collaboration and mutuality

Treatment providers and patients work together to build individualized treatment plans.

5. Empowerment, voice, and choice

Patient's and clinician's strengths are recognized, built on, and validated.

6. Cultural, historical, and gender issues

Biases, gender norms, historical trauma, and stereotypes are recognized and addressed.

Types Of Trauma-Informed Care

Our staff will choose a trauma-informed approach based on the effects, prevalence, and type of trauma experienced by an individual and their specific therapeutic objectives. Some of our trauma-informed practices include:


EMDR therapy aims to alter how the brain stores the memory, resulting in decreased emotional reactions linked with the trauma.

2. Trauma-Informed Yoga Therapy

This treatment option helps people recognize their physical sensations to reduce anxiety, stress, and strain using self-awareness and grounding.

3. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT aims to recognize distorted or distressing beliefs linked to a traumatic event and build healthy coping skills to deal with emotional stress.

4. Psychodynamic Therapy

This treatment explores the patient's past and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) to help them manage and understand emotions.

5. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT focuses on building emotional intelligence and self-awareness to enhance interpersonal relationships.

6. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT helps people understand and accept their emotions as natural responses to certain situations and history of trauma without allowing them to interfere with their aspirations in life.

7. Humanistic/Experiential Therapy

This approach focuses on the person as a whole, taking into account their strengths and capacity for self-healing

8. Interpersonal Therapy

Interpersonal Therapy is based on the belief that certain mental health disorders can be inherited or have a biological predisposition and that stressful life events can trigger symptoms.

Benefits Of Trauma-Informed Care

Trauma-informed care has various advantages for patients, healthcare providers, and staff. Trauma survivors often struggle to maintain healthy and honest relationships with their healthcare providers, fearing the stigma behind post-traumatic stress disorder and other effects of trauma. By addressing trauma within a substance abuse treatment plan, patients can receive better healthcare, establish long-term trust with their providers, and support their goals toward lifelong sobriety.
