EP 195-Healing Addiction and Trauma Through Somatic and Indigenous Mental Health Practices with Dr. Constance Scharff

Addiction, trauma, and struggles with mental health are something a large portion of our population struggles with. The treatment options that have been available in the past also have varying results. Today I’m joined by addiction and trauma expert and outside-the-box thinker Dr. Constance Scharff for a discussion on combining western knowledge of addiction and trauma healing with somatic and indigenous healing practices.

Dr. Scharff is an award-winning, bestselling author. She has published three books. Her most recent is Rock to Recovery: Music as a Catalyst for Human Transformation, published in 2021 by Around the Way Publishing. That book won a National Indie Excellence Award, received a GOLD Award in the Nonfiction Book Awards, and an Award of Distinction in the 28th Communicator Awards. She also wrote the Amazon #1 best-selling Ending Addiction for Good and an award-winning poetry book, Meeting God at Midnight. Dr. Scharff writes regularly for several blogs and websites, including Psychology Today, where her articles have received more than one and a quarter million views. Her book reviews can be found in the New York Journal of Books.

In her role as an addiction researcher, Dr. Scharff brings the latest in evidence-based addiction treatment information to those who suffer worldwide from addiction and trauma. She has spoken at conferences and shared information with researchers and mental health professionals in Europe, North and South America, the Middle East, Asia, Oceania, and Africa. Her goal is to eliminate the stigma that is too often associated with addiction and other mental health disorders, so that individuals in need of care will be able to receive that support and lead productive, fulfilling lives. In 2019, she received St. Lawrence University’s Sol Feinstone Humanitarian Award for her advocacy and work on behalf of those with mental health and substance abuse issues.
