Robin will facilitate a discussion about the intersection of trauma and substance use disorders. We will discuss why trauma histories are common among people in SUD treatment by looking at the neurobiology of trauma and of SUDs. We will look at how reaching for substances to alleviate distress and discomfort of trauma makes sense from the perspective of the central nervous system. Trauma informed care principles are essential for serving SUD clients, and treatment approaches that heal trauma wounds will fortify recovery.
