Understand the impact of trauma
Renew’s program is designed for women who have suffered trauma in the past. This can include physical, mental, and sexual abuse as well as neglect or adverse events. Traumas are powerful addiction triggers, because people often use substances to deal with emotional and physical pain.
Renew’s trauma-informed approach begins by understanding the lifelong impact that trauma has on an individual. This approach acknowledges the fact that trauma can affect a person in many ways, including their mental, physical, and emotional well-being. The approach acknowledges the fact that trauma can lead to destructive behaviors such as addiction.
Create a safe and supportive environment
Renew’s trauma-informed approach is centered on creating a supportive and safe environment for women to begin their healing journey. The safety of those who are traumatized is crucial, since they may be anxious and vulnerable in clinical environments. Renew aims to create a safe and trusting environment for women, so they can feel confident about sharing their stories.
Renew’s staff is specially trained to recognize emotional reactions and triggers associated with trauma. It helps to create a climate of understanding and empathy, so that women feel validated and heard.
Trauma Informed Therapy
Renew offers a variety of interventions that address the impact trauma has on addiction. Trauma-informed treatment is provided to women, and may include cognitive-behavioral therapies, eye-movement desensitization, and reprocessing therapy (EMDR), or dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).
The therapeutic methods help women to process their traumas, learn healthier ways of coping, and gain a sense of safety and self-worth.
