Contemporary perspectives on addiction include an increasing emphasis on trauma as one of the underlying causes of drug and alcohol addiction. It is known that addiction and trauma disorders are linked in many people.
What constitutes trauma is subjective. Thus the perspective of the traumatized individual is what matters and not whether an outsider believes an experience is traumatic.
Unresolved trauma issues are often “treated” by the addict or alcoholic through their use of their choice of addictive substance. Some of the symptoms of trauma of the addict or alcoholic include:
Guilt and shame
An integrated approach to treating the addiction must include addressing all aspects of trauma and PTSD for a successful recovery to occur. Clients are often unaware that they even have trauma, and thus that they use drugs to cope with the symptoms of trauma.
