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.
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
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:

Because SMR was founded by the parents of a young man in recovery it works with the whole family to achieve long term sobriety. The communication with parents truly sets SMR apart from other rehab homes.Linda Brown
This place saved my life. There's no other way to put it. I would have lost my life to my addiction if I had not chosen Shadow Mountain in Taos. I am grateful every day that I decided on this place. I had been to inpatient rehabilitation centers before, and this is by far the best that I've been to. Everybody that works there understands and cares about what the clients are going through. The area is absolutely beautiful. There are plenty of activities to join in on. And the recovery scene in Taos is incredible. It is not an easy program, but it is life saving.Daniel Terrazas
