Traumatic events can have lasting effects on the people who experience them. If left unresolved, trauma can often lead to the development of substance abuse and addiction. Trauma is defined as an event or circumstance that has lasting mental, physical, and emotional effects on the person who experienced it. Trauma can include sexual or physical abuse, neglect, rape, combat, natural disasters, and more. Mental health experts explain that trauma can mean different things to different people, not everyone will experience the same events as traumatic. It’s important to remember that trauma is subjective and defined on an individual basis.

Unfortunately, many survivors of trauma don’t receive proper support to help them work through the impact of their experience. Mental health care remains stigmatized for many and without healthy coping skills, it’s easy for people to turn to drugs or alcohol in an attempt to self-medicate painful emotions. Because trauma changes how the brain perceives threats, addiction can develop quickly. Unfortunately, this was the case for Kensie, but thankfully The Source was able to help her resolve her past trauma and achieve recovery.

“I would definitely recommend this facility for anyone who wants to get and stay sober. 5 stars,” she said.
