Co-occurring PTSD and Addiction Treatment in VT

Get Started Today

Dual diagnoses consist of two mental health disorders occurring at the same time. PTSD and addiction are two disorders that often coincide. Individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder may turn to substances to help manage their symptoms, but relying on them too much could lead to the development of addiction and a substance abuse disorder. If you or a loved one is struggling with PTSD and addiction, it may be time to ask for help.

Sana at Stowe is your premier rehabilitation center in Stowe, Vermont. We provide comprehensive services to aid in PTSD and addiction recovery.

Navigating PTSD and Addiction

People who have suffered through traumatic events are susceptible to developing PTSD because of the severity of what they experienced or witnessed. PTSD symptoms — like intrusive memories of the event, drastic negative behavior and emotional changes, and extreme physical reactions to certain sounds or actions — can cause people to engage in self-destructive behaviors like binge drinking and substance use to numb and forget what they’re remembering.

PTSD can develop due to numerous causes, including but not limited to:

  • Childhood trauma
  • Sexual or physical assault
  • Severe accidents, like car crashes
  • Abuse
  • Combat exposure

To self-medicate, individuals who have PTSD may turn to alcohol or drugs to help them not think about their trauma and feel better, as substances can subdue anxiety and depression symptoms temporarily. Childhood or unresolved trauma could result in an addiction developing.

Our Services

We have several programs to help you address your PTSD and addiction and start the path to recovery. Our co-occurring PTSD treatment and trauma-informed care program allows individuals to target underlying traumas linked to their addiction. Through the program, you will receive treatment that focuses on helping you heal from your trauma while teaching you how not to rely on substances. This trauma-informed PTSD treatment program is part of our residential addiction treatment program.

You may also benefit from our evidence-based addiction treatment, withdrawal management services, or holistic addiction treatment. Our team works with you to ensure you get fitted with a program that best suits your needs.
