Cycle of Harm

Survivors of abuse can develop an addiction to drugs or alcohol as a way of coping with the trauma they have experienced. The Cycle of Harm explains why it is so important for survivors to be supported with both their addiction and the underlying trauma.

The 'Catch 22' that many survivors find themselves in is that when they start to reduce their drug and alcohol intake, their trauma symptoms increase. This causes them to relapse and use drink and drugs again, and the Cycle of Harm continues. 

The only way to break this cycle is if a survivor is supported to deal with the abuse that led to their addiction in the first place, as well as their addiction. If they manage to reduce their drug or alcohol usage and get help to deal with their trauma, they will no longer need to use drink or drugs as a coping mechanism.
