Trauma Informed Care

Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) is an approach in the behavioral health field that assumes that one is more likely than not to have experienced trauma within their lifetime. Trauma-Informed Care recognizes trauma symptoms and acknowledges the impact of trauma in an individual’s life and train staff accordingly.

On an organizational level, Trauma-Informed Care creates a culture to emphasize appropriately responding to the effects of trauma on our clients. Trauma-Informed Care is essential to providing a safe space for clients to heal. At Divine Intervention Recovery Center, we assure a safe environment for our clients by providing trauma trainings for all staff, no matter their level of education or their role within the company.

The intention of Trauma-Informed Care is not to treat symptoms or issues related to sexual, physical, or emotional abuse or any other form of trauma but rather to provide support services in a way that is easily available and appropriate to all who walk through the doors of Divine Intervention Recovery Center.


Re-traumatization is any situation or environment that resembles one’s trauma experience both literally or symbolically and triggers difficult feelings or body sensations that may induce an internal or external behavioral response to keep him or herself safe. Re-traumatization is often unintentional. There are some “obvious” practices that could be re-traumatizing such as the use of restraints, isolation, and a confrontational approach. On the other hand, there are less obvious triggers to past painful experiences such as familiar smells, sounds, or bodily sensations.

Re-traumatization is a significant concern and an important area of consideration for the implementation of an intervention. Individuals who have a history of complex trauma (multiple traumatic experiences) are less likely to have the desire to engage in a treatment program as a direct result of difficulty with trusting others. At Divine Intervention Recovery Center, we put our best foot forward in managing these concerns by utilizing the Five Principles of Trauma Informed Care. The Five Guiding Principles are; safety, choice, collaboration, trustworthiness, and empowerment.
