Trauma Informed Care
Trauma informed care is something we take very seriously at Jaywalker Lodge, and we’re happy to announce that our trauma programing now includes a separate break out group for all clients engaged in our trauma track. Along with in-depth assessment and individual trauma specific counseling, clients in the trauma program will now be participating in a weekly trauma and grief group session. Jaywalker Lodge trauma specialist Amy Vespa had this to say about the new offering: “Community has always been at the heart of the Jaywalker philosophy. This group allows for education, healing, and normalization of the trauma resolution process in a peer driven setting. It fits perfectly within the Jaywalker model and has added a great element to the trauma program”. At Jaywalker we believe that effective addiction treatment must include support for clients that suffer from unresolved trauma, and we believe this new group enhances our ability to treat complex clients that suffer from the effects of both addiction and trauma.
