Emotional Trauma

No matter what the type of childhood trauma, the negative impact on the victims is deep and lasting. Just as two people may not experience an event in the same way, no two people react to a stressful, traumatic event in the same way. While one person may find the ability to cope with a traumatic event, another may be unable to deal with the trauma by themselves in a productive manner.

Help For Childhood Trauma

Many trauma sufferers choose to deal with their feelings alone, instead of seeking appropriate professional treatment. These people may act out sexually to dull the feelings associated with the trauma and the pain that comes with those feelings. It is common for trauma survivors to also struggle with drug addiction, alcohol addiction and/or other behavioral disorders as they attempt to cope with the original issue.

Physical and Emotional Abuse

Research by Dr. Patrick Carnes and others has shown that childhood trauma and abuse can have significant impact on whether or not person develops a sexual addiction. In one study, 72 percent of addicts reported physical abuse and 97 percent reported emotional abuse. Furthermore, the more sexually and physically abused the respondents were as children, the more addictions they had as adults. Willow House at the Meadows has a program that is designed to help patients uncover the roots of their addiction, and resolve underlying emotional trauma that can manifest itself in sexual addiction, PTSD, depression, anxiety and other conditions.

Treatment For Physical and Emotional Abuse

In our program, women are guided on their journey of recovery by examining the underlying causes of addiction and co-occurring disorders in a safe and nurturing community composed of their peers. An essential component of the Willow House at The Meadows treatment program is the Survivor’s Workshop. Using the pioneering work of Senior Fellow Pia Mellody, patients at Willow House examine their childhoods in a safe and nurturing environment. Through this work, patients discover the origins of their self-defeating behaviors, learn to release painful emotions, and heal themselves from the shame, neglect or abandonment they have experienced in the past.

The goal is for these individuals to gain the courage to face difficult issues, including grief and loss; heal from emotional trauma; and become accountable for their own feelings, behaviors, and recovery.

Sexual Abuse

Research by Dr. Patrick Carnes and others has shown that childhood trauma and abuse can have significant impact on whether or not person develops a sexual addiction. In one study, 81 percent of addicts reported being sexually abused as children. Furthermore, the more sexually and physically abused the respondents were as children, the more addictions they had as adults.
