Many self-harmful and addictive behaviors reenact trauma, perpetuate pain, and lead to vulnerable experiences that increase chances for future traumas. When Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and addictions co-occur, simply being abstinent does not treat PTSD, and merely treating PTSD does ensure freedom from addictions. Seeking Safety is a safe, integrative, evidenced-based treatment approach to addressing PTSD, addictions, and the link between the two.
What does Seeking Safety entail?
Lead by trauma specialist, Dr. Nicole Politis, Seeking Safety addresses 25 important topics over the course of 24 weeks in a structured format that provides helpful information, meaningful connections, and practical coping strategies. Some of the topics include:
- Discontinuing harmful behaviors (i.e., self-harm, eating disorder behaviors, substance abuse)
- Reducing suicidality
- Minimizing exposure to (potential) future traumas
- Letting go of dangerous, harmful relationships
- Gaining control over symptoms
Register for Group Therapy
Seeking Safety will take place every Thursday for 24 consecutive weeks. Time and start date, TBD, depending on group members. Once the group is full, we will plan the start date and do our best to work around group members’ schedules as we set the time of day the group will be held. Participants must be 18+ years old and committed to participating in all, or most, of the group sessions. This will be a CLOSED therapy group, meaning there will not be any new members added after the first session. If you are interested in participating, please contact us at 720-577-5819 for pricing and further details.
