Trauma-Focused, not Trauma-Informed

We treat all mental health and substance use issues at Roots, with a focus on trauma. Whether you're dealing with depression, anxiety, alcoholism or drug abuse, we believe that underneath these issues is unresolved trauma. For many, this trauma may have come as a result of adverse childhood experiences, such as divorce, abuse or neglect, observing violence or being the victim of bullying; while for others, it could be a more recent experience. Our goal is to identify and treat the trauma through our trauma-focused care, build resilience, and provide tools and healthy coping skills to help deal with triggers and future issues that arise. The result of doing this work is a reduction in depression and anxiety symptoms, suicidal ideation, and no longer needing to turn to alcohol or substances to cope with feelings triggered by trauma.

Making and Healing Connections

Connection is the most important part of your healing process. The reason so many people leave treatment early, or bounce from therapist to therapist, is often because they don’t feel connected to the program or the counselor. The clinicians at Roots are highly trained, experienced and compassionate, and maybe most importantly, they care. We believe that there is no “one size fits all” approach, so you’ll get to experience a variety of therapies from a variety of specialists. Whether you’re dealing with trauma, substance abuse, mental health or pain, there is no better place for you than Roots for you.
