Addiction is a complex issue, and no two people have the same journey through it. Many biological and environmental factors contribute to the development of addiction. Research suggests that trauma is closely linked to addiction.
During addiction, your tolerance increases to your substance of choice, meaning you have to constantly use more in order to feel the same intoxicating effects. Substance abuse treatment focuses on helping you learn how to manage your symptoms, like cravings and triggers, so that you can maintain your sobriety.

If you have left these traumas unresolved, then you may have encountered how they have affected numerous areas of your life.
