· Deeply painful and distressing experiences can have significant impacts on an individual’s life. The experience of trauma is often paralleled with other adversities such as issues with mental and physical health, job performance, self-esteem, parenting and romantic and platonic relationships, etc.
· The experience of trauma and addiction often go hand in hand. Individuals that experience trauma, such as abuse, assault, unstable homes, discrimination, accidents, and unexpected losses, are significantly more likely than others to develop some form of addiction in their youth, adolescent, and adult lives
