There is a strong correlation proven by research indicating a relationship between the experience of trauma and substance use, turning into the development of an addiction. While not every person that experiences a trauma later develops an addiction, trauma is considered a major underlying issue leading to addiction behavior. The relationship is simple, addictions can help reduce the overwhelming sensations resulting from trauma in the goal to create safety and control through relaxation from fear and relief from unpleasant and uncomfortable memories and emotional experience.
