In this episode of Recovery Radio, Zach is joined by Carey Wong, who currently serves as Chief Counsel at Child Advocates. She is the co-founder of the Child Advocacy Clinic at IU McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis and currently serves as adjunct professor in the clinic. The two discuss her work with children of addicts, the effects of parental addiction on children, and what is the best timeline for recovering from the trauma of a parent using drugs or alcohol.
Coping with Childhood Trauma
If you feel like you still bear the wounds of your past trauma, know that you are not alone. Many young individuals struggle with addiction due to traumatic events in their lives and they were never taught how to deal with those events or how to cope with them in a healthy way. Our facilities provide both individual and group therapy and Self-Management and Recovery Training (SMART) Recovery as tools to help you navigate your life beyond addiction and to develop healthy coping mechanisms and mindsets.
