If you abused drugs or alcohol before, during or after your suicide loss, you gain your hope and healing through rehab treatment.
Rehab Help for Trauma of Suicide Loss
Addiction and trauma go hand-in-hand. Until you treat your underlying trauma, such as that of suicide loss, your addiction continues spinning your life into chaos. But with the right level of care and many hours of trauma therapy, you move past your suicide trauma and other problems to a real chance of lasting sobriety.
When you abuse drug or alcohol because of life trauma, this abuse is self-medication. Self-medication only works for your first several drug doses or drinking bouts. After you enter tolerance to your drugs or alcohol, the self-medication stops and bigger problems begin. Soon, you find yourself dependent on your substances and quickly on your way to full-blown addiction.
These struggles with substance abuse affect many people going through trauma. This trauma includes that of past abuse, criminal victimization, sexual assault, suicide loss and other major life events. November 17th's International Survivor of Suicide Day events simply remind you that recovery starts with healing from the trauma. In your community and rehab treatment program, you find that healing and hope.
