Whether it begins with "self-medication" after a painful experience or as a way to escape from ongoing abuse or neglect, the all-too-common yet complicated web of substance abuse and trauma is now just gaining recognition. If you are striving to recover from trauma and addiction, pursuing recovery on your own or with the help of a professional, this short, user-friendly book is for you. The eight "keys" in the book will guide you through healing: how to recognise the connection between trauma and addiction; how to stay safe; how to have compassion and learn to love oneself; how to explore the past for clues to the present; and more. Those who are advanced on their path to recovery from trauma and addiction often say they regret their problems but that overcoming them was an immeasurably hopeful, inspiring and healing process. This book can help.
