We understand that past trauma can make it more challenging to trust our team to guide you through the treatment process. All of our locations use psychotherapy, peer support, trauma-informed care, and other methods to create a comfortable and secure environment where you can get the help you need to heal.
Our Trauma-Informed Approach
Trauma can have long-term effects on your daily life. The clinicians at kathy ireland® Recovery Centers Centers use a trauma-informed approach to ensure you feel safe during treatment for substance use disorder. We also respect any cultural and religious traditions that may enhance and improve your treatment experience.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA), “trauma can significantly affect how an individual engages in major life areas as well as treatment.” A trauma-informed approach involves recognizing trauma responses and taking steps to decrease adverse effects on treatment. We practice a trauma-informed approach to care by doing the following:
- Collaborating using open and honest communication
- Providing trauma education to normalize empathetic care
- Tailoring treatment plans to accommodate trauma-related needs
