The Connection Between
Trauma and Addiction
Trauma is the body’s emotional response to any event you may find physically or emotionally harmful. Trauma incurs a wide range of emotions, such as feeling helpless, shocked, or overwhelmed.
Trauma is often caused by; domestic violence, physical or sexual abuse, severe illness or injury, the death of a loved one, witnessing an act of violence, and natural disasters. If you have experienced trauma, you may feel a wide range of emotions, including:
