Structured, manualized 15-week intervention combining psychoeducational approaches with expressive therapies Seeking Safety Offers coping skills to help clients attain greater safety in their lives Highly flexible and can be used for group or individual format; women, men, and adolescents; all levels of care (e.g., outpatient, inpatient, residential); all types of trauma and substances; and any clinician. 25 treatment topics, each representing a safe coping skill relevant to both PTSD and SUD. Used broadly with clients who need improved coping skills; they do not have to meet criteria for PTSD and substance abuse as the skills can be generalized. Helping Men Recover

Helping Men Recover integrates a theory of addiction, a theory of trauma, and a theory of male psychosocial development. Program materials consist of a facilitator manual and a participant workbook 18 sessions in four modules: Module A: Self Module B: Relationships Module C: Sexuality Module D: Spirituality Participant Feedback Trauma services saved my life. I am very grateful for this experience. Though it has been difficult at times, I know it will better my life and my future. I was lost before and all this experience helped me improve my life and emotional issues that has led me to the wrong paths. I recommend it to those who really need it and would benefit from it. I enjoyed it. Recovery A process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life and strive to reach their full potential. Questions?
