When they affect individuals deeply enough, traumatic events of the past can hold sway over the present. At North Bay Recovery Center, we come to the aid of Clients who have developed addictions as a result of painful traumatic events that have consequentially led to debilitating cases of PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). As part of our empathic and trust-based philosophy of drug and alcohol addiction treatment — one built off of the core values of our S4 Model (Safe, Sober, Supported and Supervised) — we do not just treat the addiction itself, but rather, we view it as a likely symptom that developed in the aftermath of attempting to cope with the intense onrush of emotions that comes from reliving the feelings that are associated with the traumatic event. By providing a safe environment and the empathy and expertise of our team of supportive therapists and counselors, North Bay offers a safe haven in which Clients can confront and overcome their PTSD while receiving on-point and individualized treatment for their drug and alcohol addiction.
Depending on the best fit for each Client, we may also recommend a combination of traditional one-on-one talk therapy, group therapy sessions or grief counseling, among other therapeutic protocols. By integrating all of these modes of therapy together to create the best drug and alcohol addiction treatment plan for each specific client, we provide a safe, secure and endlessly compassionate environment for them to deal with their painful traumas, conquer their resultant addictions and overcome the grip both once maintained on their lives.
