About Seeking Safety  
Seeking Safety is an evidence-based, present-focused counselling model to help people attain safety from trauma and/or substance abuse. It can be conducted in group (any size) and/or individual modality. It is an extremely safe model as it directly addresses both trauma and addiction, but without requiring clients to delve into the trauma narrative (the detailed account of disturbing trauma memories), thus making it relevant to a very broad range of clients and easy to implement.

The key principles of Seeking Safety
1)  Safety as the overarching goal (helping clients attain safety in their relationships, thinking, behavior, and emotions).  
2)  Integrated treatment (working on both trauma and substance abuse at the same time if the person has both)
3)  A focus on ideals to counter the loss of ideals in both trauma and substance abuse
4)  Four content areas: cognitive, behavioral, interpersonal, case management
5)  Attention to clinician processes (clinicians' emotional responses, self-care, etc.)

Highly flexible across a broad range of clients
The model is highly flexible.  It can been conducted in group or individual format; for males, females and across all gender identities; adults or adolescents; for any length of treatment; any level of care (e.g., outpatient, inpatient, residential); any type of trauma, any type of substance. Clients do not have to meet formal criteria for PTSD or substance abuse-- it is often used as a general model to teach coping skills. Seeking Safety has been successfully implemented for many years across vulnerable populations including homeless, criminal justice, domestic violence, severely mentally ill, veterans and military, and others. It has been successfully used for decades across all types of traumas and all types of addictions, and for those who may have problems in both areas (trauma/addiction) or just one or the other.
