Complex Trauma

The Connection Between Trauma and Addiction

The common causes of complex trauma are physical abuse, sexual abuse, mental abuse and profound neglect. Although most complex trauma occurrences happen during childhood, the effects can carry over into adulthood.

Unfortunately, one of the most common effects – typically used to cope with the emotional impact caused by personal trauma – is drug abuse.

Symptoms of Complex Trauma
