This is so needed! When I went to rehab for substance misuse in 2005, childhood trauma was not being discussed and it was a long and windy road for me to find the teachings I needed to heal. Now it's 2020 and guess what...childhood trauma is STILL not being discussed in rehabs. I have been trying to find resources for a family member in need and substance misuse treatment is still in the dark ages. Looking forward to seeing the outcomes from this funding opportunity!
