Seeking Safety Group

Seeking Safety-SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs to assist people in attaining safety from trauma and/or substance use. The treatment is based on five central ideas:

  • Safety as the priority
  • Integrated treatment of PTSD and substance abuse
  • A focus on ideals
  • Content areas of behavioral, interpersonal, and case management
  • Attention to the therapist process.

The concept of safety is interwoven into each unit, with the idea that safety allows for forward movement in the trauma-recovery process. In this case “safety” implies, emotional safety, safety from substances, letting go of unhealthy relationships, and gaining control over symptoms of PTSD and/or traumatic experiences and subsequent emotional dysregulation.
