Seeking Safety- BRIGHT Program
Seeking Safety is a present-focused therapy to help people attain safety from trauma/PTSD and substance abuse. Designed for clients who are trauma-exposed or have a diagnosis of PTSD, clients who engage in maladaptive behaviors, (ex. high risk behaviors, sexual promiscuity, cutting, self-injurious behaviors) or have a substance abuse disorder. Clients will learn to use safe coping strategies to eliminate self-harm, remove themselves from dangerous situations, gain control over overwhelming symptoms, attain healthy self-care, and acquire trustworthy relationships. OTTP is providing this service to youth age 13-25. These services are made possible through a SAMHSA grant called the BRIGHT Program (Build Resilency, Inspire Growth, & Heal Trauma).
