Looking for a trauma therapy program in New Jersey? Let NJ Recovery Solutions help you find healing.


Heal From the Trauma of Your Past & Focus on Your Present

New Jersey Recovery Solutions recognizes the strong link between trauma and substance use. Unfortunately for some individuals, their past trauma makes it difficult for them to function in everyday life, causing them to turn to drugs or alcohol to cope. Trauma therapy helps break this cycle. 

When considering trauma therapy, it’s important to know what types of trauma it treats and the signs that a person can benefit from it. Not everyone realizes that they need this type of therapy. Fortunately, all clients are assessed before starting treatment, allowing us to determine whether or not trauma therapy can be beneficial.

What is trauma?

Understanding Trauma

Experiencing trauma is not uncommon. Did you know that most people experience a traumatic event at some point in their lives? Traumatic events are different from ordinary events in the sense that they are sudden, unpredictable and often involve a serious threat to life, such as bodily injury or death.

Because these events happen in the way that they do, they cause people to feel threatened and vulnerable. Chronic trauma (repeated events) and complex trauma (repeated events with no means of escape) can have an especially lasting impact that affects a person’s ability to function.

Examples of Trauma Include:

  • Physical violence 
  • Sexual assault
  • Neglect 
  • Parental loss
  • Military combat
  • Natural disasters 
  • Auto accidents

How Does Trauma Therapy Differ From Other Therapies?

The goal of trauma therapy is to process unresolved trauma so that individuals can overcome these events. Otherwise, the trauma stays in the body, causing emotional disturbances like anxiety, anger, sadness or guilt. Due to these intense emotions, people struggling with trauma may end up self-medicating with harmful substances to ease their pain.
