Trauma-Informed Care

Trauma-Informed Care at Taos Recovery Center

At Taos Recovery Center, we prefer to take a multi-faceted approach to addiction recovery, which includes a mixture of holistic, therapeutic, and medically-assisted treatment methods. Due to the link between trauma and addiction and other mental disorders, one important aspect of our program is our trauma-informed care, which specifically focuses on this dangerous connection.

Explaining Trauma-Informed Care

As a treatment method, trauma-informed care (or TIC) focuses on examining past trauma in a patient’s life, and focusing on how it impacts their behavior, usually through potentially negative coping mechanisms. Trauma can result in a variety of behavioral reactions, whether it is detachment, emotional roller coasters, dishonesty, or even violent behavior. Focusing on the root cause of addiction proves to be a lot more

Building a Better Approach to Addiction Recovery

As a result of past trauma, substance abuse may be one destructive coping mechanism that people turn to. This is extremely common in the world of addiction recovery. Because of this, programs that are seriously going to examine the root causes of addiction and work to make lasting behavioral changes must address this trauma. This is why trauma-informed care has become such an important modality of our program.

Here are some different ways that our program uses trauma-informed care to help patients on their journey to recovery:

  • Helps patients focus on their total well-being, rather than just focusing on the symptoms of addiction.
  • Offers solutions that are effective both in the short-term and long-term road of addiction recovery.
  • Provides a more insightful window to the patient and their family into how the past impacts present behavior.
  • Teaches crucial coping mechanisms for patients to deal with past trauma, which replaces destructive habits they may be using to cope, currently.

There aren't enough words to express how thankful I am with Shadow Mountain and the treatment they gave to me, what I lived there is something I won't be able to live anywhere else, everything there was great and everything helped me to become who I am now.

I went to Shadow Mountain Rehab to address my issues with alcoholism and addiction. After realizing that for years I had been a functional addict I thought quitting or curbing this addiction would be easy but this disease is not so simple. Making the decision to go to Shadow Mountain Recovery in Taos, NM did not come lightly but I did understatement how much personal effort I would be putting in. 30 days doesn't solve everything but it does give you a chance to at least take stock of all that's going on in your life. Drinking and Drugs are just a symptom of something deeper and unique to each individual addressing their issues. This program gave me the tools and support to truly begin the process of addressing addiction, searching within and finding myself. I am 2 months sober now and my journey that began in the mountains of Taos goes on but the journey has definitely been made easier by what I learned in recovery. Sobriety is possible & if you work it guess what, it can work!
