How Childhood Trauma Influences Addiction

With Noah Mugenyi, RP

Registered Psychotherapist, Bellwood Health Services

Trauma is thought to result from an event or multiple events that an individual experiences as emotionally or physically harmful. These experiences have lasting effects on the individual’s wellbeing. One of the leading causes of developing addiction later in adult life is childhood trauma. A study of individuals being treated for substance use disorder and PTSD found that 77% of the sample had experienced at least one trauma as a child. One of the most difficult aspects of dealing with childhood trauma and addiction is the vicious cycle. Join Noah Mugenyi, Registered Psychotherapist at Bellwood Health Services, on Thursday, March 23 between 12-1pm EST as he further discusses the intersection of childhood trauma and addiction.
