In recent years, we all have had our lives turned upside down due to a global crisis. Crisis has a way of exposing our strengths and areas where we still need work. During a crisis, we soon realize there are many things that are simply out of our control—what other people choose to do, what the government decides to do, etc. Click on the graphic to view the full document and learn these ways to manage stress in a time of crisis.

Stress and Addiction
Stress and addiction often go hand in hand. In times of crisis, people may turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms like drugs or alcohol to manage elevated stress levels. This can be especially dangerous for those already struggling with an addiction, as the added stress of a crisis can lead them to increasingly abuse substances. It is essential for individuals to recognize the link between stress and addiction and to be proactive in finding healthy coping mechanisms.
To help manage this, Santé Center for Healing provides a variety of treatments and resources tailored to those struggling with addiction during times of crisis. We also offer non-addiction treatment services to manage stress.

How Addiction Treatment Can Help with Stress Management
When stress and anxiety become too much to handle during a crisis, addiction treatment can be an excellent resource for finding relief. Addiction professionals have the skills and expertise to help individuals cope with their psychological distress. Clients can learn techniques to manage their emotions and mental health symptoms effectively through evidence-based therapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).
These therapies can teach individuals how to regulate their reactions to stressful situations better, leading to improved physical and emotional wellness. Additionally, some addiction treatment includes medication, such as those to treat symptoms of stress like insomnia or headaches, or underlying conditions like antidepressants for depression, such as insomnia or headaches. Combining psychotherapy with medication can help people manage stress and reduce symptoms.
