Addressing the underlying causes of addiction
There are many underlying issues that can contribute to, or cause, an addiction problem. Being that each person is a unique individual there could be one, or multiple underlying causes for their addiction. Anyone suffering from addiction has at least one underlying cause, which will typically be unique to the individual. The most common issues that we see are mental health disorders (co-occurring disorders), past trauma, sexual orientation or gender identity issues, insecurity issues, and/or physical injury related issues. While this list is not exhaustive, it will cover some of the major causes of addiction that we see at Broadway Treatment Center.
Broadway offers specialized addiction treatment programs for the following…
Mental Health & Addiction (Co-occurring Disorders)
Mental health issues and addiction often times go hand in hand. When a client is struggling with addiction and is diagnosed with a mental health disorder this is called a co-occurring disorder or dual-diagnosis. Broadway is known for their successful dual-diagnosis addiction treatment program. Our counselors and therapists have a lot of experience dealing with these issues. Oftentimes, a client who is struggling with their mental health issues will use drugs or alcohol to self-medicate their symptoms. In turn, the substance abuse will exacerbate their mental health issue, and a vicious cycle starts. Only a trained professional will be able to treat an individual whom is suffering from both conditions.
Past Trauma & Addiction
Many times individuals who have experienced past trauma in their lives and have not properly dealt with it, will turn to drugs or alcohol to help them cope. There are obvious signs of trauma such as being in a war, but there are also more subtle types that can be harder to identify. Sometimes it can be difficult for clients to identify trauma in their own lives which could lead to those feelings not being dealt with. This could be issues such as a bad breakup, a divorce, a car accident, or a bad childhood. Trauma that is left unchecked will cause many unexpected consequences which has been shown to have a strong link with substance abuse.
Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity related Addictions
Sexual orientation and gender identity related issues are oftentimes a root cause for addiction. Society in general has been woefully ignorant and behind the times when it comes to dealing with sexual orientation and gender identity issues. Many individuals struggling with these issues suffer feelings of isolation from peers and family. The isolation mixed with confusing feelings has led to a high rate of suicide and addiction among these individuals. Broadway has a special program track that helps these clients learn to accept themselves and be proud of who they are as they work through their journey to recovery.
Insecurity Related Addictions
Many times addiction can stem from feelings of insecurity or inadequacy. Feelings such as fear, low self-esteem, general insecurities, lack of social skills, or feeling like you don’t fit into the social groups you long to be a part of are all huge triggers for addiction. There are many individuals who begin to use drugs or alcohol simply to be liked, or to feel comfortable in their own skin when they are around their peers. Many times substance use can give an individual the feelings of courage or confidence that allow them to be part of a group. The only issue is that soon it will feel like they need to be under the influence all the time to keep up. Heavy use will eventually lead to dependence and then the vicious cycle of addiction starts.
Physical Injury Related Addictions
Physical injury related addictions are becoming more and more prevalent given the state of our country’s opiate crisis. The fastest growing type of addiction is to opiates. This typically starts with a single prescription for pain medication due to an injury. Oftentimes the injury could cause chronic pain in which case requires continued use of prescription pain or anti-anxiety medication after physical rehabilitation. Broadway’s professional staff and therapists are trained to teach healthy medication management to help our clients learn to take their medication as directed. We also offer a pain management program that does not require any medication. It is up to the client which option they would like to pursue.
