Responding to the Third Wave of the Pandemic: Trauma and Addiction

NASW Rhode Island

Mark Wills 0 208
Noon-1:30 p.m.

Social isolation, mask-hysteria, media re-traumatization, sociopolitical uncertainty all played a role on the persistent trauma during the COVID-19 pandemic. This has resulted in a dramatic increase in addiction due to self-medication during the height of the pandemic. Traditional addiction treatment has ignored the significant impact of trauma on personal recovery and subsequently people have continued to struggle as a result. With recent advances in understanding the impact of trauma, it is time for a change in the approach taken toward trauma and addiction.
