There are a number of mental health disorders that are commonly related to trauma. Disorders may occur separately or together to form what is called, a co-morbidity syndrome. Substance use disorders (SUDs) very commonly co-occur with PTSD and other TRMHDs. That is why it is imperative to ensure all clients seeking addiction treatment are properly screened and assessed for a past history of such events. Individuals struggling with co-morbidity syndrome only benefit from treatment programs that address this disorder.
Getting addiction and trauma treatment from clinicians who are specialized in trauma therapy is one of the most important part of a successful recovery. At Florida Center for Recovery (FCR), when clients screen positive for trauma-related symptoms co-occurring with substance abuse disorder, they go through a focused treatment plan performed by our trauma specialist Dr. Jon Connelly. Dr. Connelly, the founder and developer of Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT) has created a nationally known trauma therapy method that is gentle, effective and in many cases produces recovery in as soon as one session.
Rapid Resolution Therapy has helped clients who have suffered from:
- Anxiety Disorders
- Acute Stress Disorder (ASD)
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Somatoform Disorders
- Complex Trauma and
- Disorder of Extreme Stress Not Otherwise Specified (DESNOS)
If you or someone you love has been exposed to a terrifying event or ordeal or has resorted to alcohol or drugs to deal with the pain and trauma, consider receiving treatment at Florida Center for Recovery. By providing Rapid Resolution Therapy, FCR has made recovery and healing with dignity possible for hundreds of individuals who didn’t have to endure needless pain and re-traumatization.
