Stress and trauma are two of the most damaging and transformative influences a human being can ever experience. According to a 2022 report from the American Psychological Association (APA), at least 76% of adults in the United States admit they have experienced health issues that were as a result of unregulated stress.

While trauma ranks slightly lower than stress in the affected number of people, it is able to cause greater emotional and psychological damage. This is why many see a direct link between PTSD and addiction, as many people may turn to substances to treat the symptoms and negative emotions associated with PTSD. For successful substance abuse treatment, it is often required that individuals work to heal their mental health. PTSD and substance abuse often go hand in hand, and true healing begins when the cycle of self-medication can be broken.
