As social workers, we have witnessed numerous clients who have turned to drugs and alcohol in attempt to cope with the overwhelming feelings that are experienced by victims of trauma. Knowing that these behaviors are destructive is not reason enough for individuals to stop using. We need to look at treating the root of the pain. This session will provide an overview of methods to use when working with clients who have addictions resulting from experiences from traumatic events.
