Clients living with substance misuse and addiction often have histories of emotional, physical and/or sexual trauma. The 12-Step groups, AA and NA, are the most widespread and available peer support groups for addiction recovery, though some language of the 12-Steps may be contraindicated for survivors of trauma. Caron Treatment Centers and Encore Recovery Solutions invites clinical professionals to join us for this workshop, which will:

  • Provide an introduction to broadened definitions of trauma with examples throughout the lifespan, and the key principles of Trauma Informed Care by SAMHSA;
  • Explore the relationship between unhealed trauma and the development of substance use disorders through an overview of the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACES);
  • Analyze language of the 12-Steps through a trauma informed lens, offering alternative language options to promote healing empowerment & prevent re-traumatization;
  • And provide resources to refer clients seeking peer support alternatives to the 12-Steps.*

*This training is not affiliated with AA, NA or any 12-Step program or entity.

This topic may not represent the clinical philosophy of the sponsoring organizations and is solely for educational purposes.
