Emotional and psychological trauma results from an extremely stressful or disturbing event that shatters your sense of security. People who have gone through a traumatic event feel unsafe, and this can affect the way they interact with the world around them. We find that many people who come to Palm Partners for drug and alcohol treatment have suffered trauma either before or during their addiction.
Drug addicts and alcoholics who have suffered trauma often find that the experiences of the past can get in the way of their recovery. They will often relive the pain of the experience over and over, and use drugs and alcohol to numb them. Also, past trauma can trap an addict or alcoholic in the “victim” role. They will use the trauma of what happened to them to excuse their using and drinking. If they don’t let go of what has happened in the past, there is a very slim chance that they will stay clean and sober in the long term.
Trauma can affect you in a number of different ways, both psychologically and physically. Common psychological symptoms of trauma include shock, anger, guilt, shame, hopelessness, confusion, and anxiety. Trauma can manifest itself physically by causing nightmares, insomnia, muscle tension, body aches, and fatigue. These symptoms can last for months to years after the trauma occurs and they can interfere with your ability to function normally.
The trauma resolution program offered at Palm Partners focuses specifically on the traumatic events in one’s life. The therapists will focus on developing coping skills to help deal with past traumas. Rapid Trauma Resolution through the use of Clinical Hypnotherapy facilitates an alternative to reliving traumas in order to heal them.

Rapid Resolution Therapy is a method that rapidly and painlessly eliminates the negative effects of trauma.
