What is addiction?

Addiction is a complex and chronic condition characterized by an individual's compulsive engagement in rewarding stimuli despite adverse consequences. 

It is often associated with substance use disorders, where a person becomes dependent on substances such as drugs or alcohol. However, it can also manifest in behaviors like gambling, eating, or even certain activities.

What is trauma?

Trauma refers to a deeply distressing or disturbing experience that overwhelms an individual's ability to cope and leaves a lasting impact on their mental, emotional, and sometimes physical well-being. Traumatic experiences can vary widely and may include experiencing or witnessing events such as:

  • Accidents
  • Natural disasters
  • Violence
  • Abuse
  • Loss of a loved one
  • Other life-threatening situations. 

Trauma can profoundly affect a person's sense of safety, trust, and ability to navigate the world.
