Seeking Safety is part of a comprehensive continuum of services for individuals (Adults and Youth) experiencing substance abuse and issues of trauma.
Seeking Safety is a research-informed model listed on the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare (CEBC) as a Promising Practice for youth with a scientific rating of 3, and a research supported program for adults with a scientific rating of 2. Seeking Safety is listed on the SAMHSA National Registry of Evidence-based Programs & Practices (NREPP).
The model directly addresses both trauma and addiction simultaneously, but without requiring participants to delve into the trauma narrative (the detailed account of disturbing trauma memories), thus making it relevant to a broad range of participants.
Seeking Safety includes the following components:
- Case management support
- Primary goal of learning healthy coping strategies
- Incorporation of family, social networks, and community systems in the treatment and recovery process
- An understanding of diverse cultures including the relevant needs of culturally diverse groups, as well as people with disabilities
- An understanding of the value of an interdisciplinary approach to addiction treatment
- Examines multi-generational functioning to address systemic issues within the family
