What Is Seeking Safety Therapy?

One relatively new type of therapeutic approach we use at SoCal Detox is seeking safety therapy. It is a present-focused and evidence-based therapy designed to help individuals, particularly those with a history of trauma and substance use disorders, establish safety and stability in their lives. Seeking safety therapy uses a cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) approach and does not require clients to delve deeply into traumatic memories. Instead, it focuses on building coping skills and strategies to address both trauma and substance use simultaneously.

How Is Seeking Safety Therapy Used in Addiction Treatment?

Seeking Safety aims to empower individuals to create a sense of safety in their lives, develop healthier coping mechanisms, and work towards recovery from trauma and addiction. It covers various topics related to safety, coping, and establishing a stable lifestyle.

Who Is A Suitable Candidate For Seeking Safety Therapy?

Many people who struggle with drug and alcohol addiction have suffered significant traumas in their lives. We believe that to successfully address addiction, the trauma must also be treated. Anyone who has suffered past traumas and has a problem with substance abuse is a good candidate for seeking safety therapy.
