Overview: Research conducted in the past ten years has dramatically increased awareness about the prevalence of trauma among people seeking treatment for alcohol and drug abuse. People dealing with the life-long effects of trauma are no longer seen as a subgroup. According to SAMHSA, 75% of individuals in substance abuse treatment report histories of abuse and trauma, and 12-24% of individuals in treatment have PTSD. Every individual seeking treatment, even those not showing symptoms of PTSD, should be asked about past trauma.
  • Learn the definition of trauma informed care.
