Trauma at the Core: Applying Trauma-Informed Care in Mental Health and Substance Abuse Treatment December 01, 2017
Approximately 75% of individuals with substance use disorders have experienced significant trauma. The implications of trauma are extensive and potentially multigenerational, leading to mental health issues, substance abuse, emotional, behavioral and relational difficulties. Trauma-informed care is an advanced, innovative, evidence-based clinical approach that addresses the underlying trauma as the core component of substance use and mental health disorders. By developing and enhancing the knowledge and skills of clinicians, we expect to improve the quality of care provided to this population and improve treatment outcomes. Trauma-informed care and its treatment model have the potential to be replicated with individual providers and throughout substance abuse and mental health treatment facilities.
