Integrative Treatments of Post Traumatic Stress and Substance Use

by Gant on April 26, 2012

Dr Gant is giving a presentation on April 27, 2012 about PTSD and Substance Use Disorders to the Virginia Association of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (VAADAC) at Bridging The Gaps, an Integrative Addiction Treatment Center in Winchester, Virginia.

Most current treatments of PTSD and Substance Use Disorders are outdated and incomplete because they only address the apparent behaviors and symptoms and fail to address the underlying causes. This workshop will expand your understanding of the mind, body, and spirit as one inseparable entity, allowing you to immediately apply the techniques with clients.

After attending the workshop you will better understand:
1. Why decades old strategies for brain biochemical balancing are obsolete,
2. How mindfulness therapies can benefit those with PTSD and Substance Use Disorders,
3. The use of functional medicine to better target interventions for clients,
4. How all energetic, structural, psychotherapeutic, and pharmacological therapies can work together to correct biochemical imbalances associated with PTSD and Substance Use Disorders and improve overall functioning.

After a complete explanation of the biochemical and neurophysiological mechanisms behind mindfulness therapies, some simple experiential exercises will be introduced to demonstrate the immediate effectiveness of these techniques.

For over a decade Bridging the Gaps (BTG) has been helping adult drug addicts, alcoholics, and dual-diagnosed clients find sustained, long-term recovery from the ravages of addiction.

BTG’s unique holistic approach to addiction treatment addresses the physical, the spiritual, and the psychological aspects of addiction to illegal and prescription drugs, alcohol, and substance dependency. They “bridge the gaps” between traditional addiction treatment and alternative therapies.

Bridging the Gaps is one of the top rehab centers in the country. Research studies report that the success rate for traditional treatment is less than 30%. Integrative addiction treatment programs, such as at BTG report success rates between 65 & 85%!

The alarming thing about prolonged stress is that an allergy-like condition can develop whereby one becomes overly sensitized to stress. The result of this is that the slightest hint of stress can bring about a much more severe reaction than really warranted. Thus the term “they have become a nervous wreck”. This conditioning must be reversed in order to gain balance. Music Treatment provides a revolutionary product to reverse the conditioning of sensitized stress. For more information go to
