Substance Use As a Method to Cope With Unresolved Trauma

Genesis Games, LMHC

In this week’s episode I am honored to share a conversation with a colleague from Florida, Ms. Genesis Games, LMHC. She is passionate about working with individuals who have problems of drug or alcohol addiction because she believes that through this work she is helping them create a better life, one that they deserve. Genesis works with individuales and their families as well into creating better environments for everyone in their recovery.

Today we talk about substance abuse and how some people have ended up shielding themselves in substance use as a way to cope with unresolved trauma by treating these addictions as a way to survive through everyday life and stressors.

Some of the resources Genesis mentions in our talk are: www.psychologytoday.com , support Groups like AA or Narcotics Anonymous, Al Anon, Celebration Recovery (based out of churches) and Smart Recovery.
