Men’s Trauma

At Recovery 4 Life, we understand that men who have struggled to cope with past trauma may turn to drugs or alcohol in an effort to ease suffering, however substances only serve to mask the underlying issues.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that’s triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares, high startle response, severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.

Anyone can develop PTSD at any age including men who have been through a physical or sexual assault, abuse, accident, disaster, or many other serious events.

We believe addiction is a symptom of the past trauma you’ve experienced and work to address the underlying root cause of the issue. Recovery 4 Life provides men only groups that focus on PTSD and addiction specifically addressing the unique needs of men seeking recovery. Groups focus on relationships, fatherhood, sexuality, communication and addiction. Each group offers a supportive, empowering experience that will help increase and strengthen your self-esteem and overcome addiction to find ultimate healing.
