    Therapy sessions focused on the individual addict can provide much-needed guidance as they work toward overcoming their addiction. These types of sessions typically involve guidance from a therapist, who will help addicts identify and process their feelings and cravings.

    • Immediate access to social support in the form of fellow addicts in recovery
    • Lowers risk of relapse
    • Increases rate of sobriety

    Trauma Therapy is a form of therapy that involves working with a patient to help them process and understand the past trauma(s) in their life. The idea behind it is that while some people can experience traumatic events and not have lasting psychiatric symptoms, many others will. In these cases, memories of the event get hidden from consciousness but continue to influence how the person processes and copes with things in their life. They may avoid situations that resemble what happened or become suddenly angry or irritated to a situation that reminds them of a past event.

    With the help of a therapist, people can go back over memories and experiences. This helps them understand why they are having problems coping with certain situations and how they can change how they think and react to things. This therapy is typically done using techniques such as visualization, discussion, and writing down thoughts and feelings.

    Trauma therapists will work with clients to help them understand their past and present relationships. Many times, patients may believe that something is inherently wrong with them or that they are unworthy of love. A therapist aims to correct these negative feelings and behaviors by helping the person realize that their actions do not reflect who they truly are.

    One of the main goals of trauma therapy is to help clients express their emotions and talk about what they are feeling. This benefits both to increase awareness of how certain events have impacted them in the past and enables patients to realize that they can make changes in their lives.

    Nicotine replacement therapies are effective because they provide you with the nicotine you are addicted to without inhaling carcinogens from cigarettes. Some types of NRT include nicotine gum, nicotine patches (transdermal systems), nasal spray, and lozenges. The benefits of using NRT can include reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer.
