Trauma, sustained over long periods of time, alters the brain's prefrontal cortex, which is responsible for risk taking behaviors, moral judgement and reasoning. If drug use is a risk-taking factor, and we know that trauma is an indicator for premature risk taking, how can we start to change the direction of conversation to healing trauma as a preventative measure for drug use? If you work with a young adult struggling with drug use due to early trauma, call us, we can help. #GoToTheRoot #GTTR #CaloPrograms http://www.acesconnection.com/blog/trauma-is-a-gateway-drug

Very excited to bring online an emerging adult program that is committed to healing the effects of early childhood trauma. Check it out!
Great article from the Cleveland Clinic on why our new Emerging Adult program focuses on addressing the impact of adverse childhood experiences. Childhood Emotional Trauma Closely Linked to Problems in Adulthood http://consultqd.clevelandclinic.org/2014/11/childhood-emotional-trauma-closely-linked-to-problems-in-adulthood/
Childhood bullying and mental illness in young adulthood. One influence that affects both children’s risk of being exposed to bullying and of developing psychiatric problems later in life is exposure to childhood adversity. The mental health problems these children experienced made them more likely to become a bully, as well as to experience disorders as adults. Calo Young Adults specializes in helping these emerging adults that have suffered from adverse childhood experiences. www.nationalelfservice.net/populations-and-settings/child-and-adolescent/childhood-bullying-and-mental-illness-in-young-adulthood/
Calo is excited to welcome Kathy Donovan, LICSW, as Executive Director of Calo Young Adults in Winchester, Virginia. Kathy has spent most of her professional career specializing in post-traumatic stress, attachment issues, depression and anxiety disorders in emerging adults. Her clinical work includes: desensitization and exposure techniques to reduce debilitating stress and trauma responses, skills to detect and reverse nervous system distress, resilience training, social and leadership skill development and methods for developing greater self-awareness. In recent years Kathy is best known for her work with clinically complex emerging adults who have "stalled" developmentally, leaving them ill-prepared for successful transition into adulthood. Kathy started her career as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines where she developed a drug and alcohol education program. She continued abroad as the YMCA International Program Director in Japan. She returned to the States to work in many capacities in the DC area, including the DC child welfare system and DC Superior Court as a clinical consultant and therapist. In addition to private practice and clinical consulting in the Washington, DC area, Kathy worked as a Second Nature Wilderness Program therapist for four years. She also served as the Executive Director of a residential program for young women. In this capacity, Kathy developed a “treatment to transition” model with an emphasis on intensive individual therapy combined with small group work to best prepare the women for successful transition from residential to supervised apartment living. Following this experience Kathy developed her own Independent Treatment Living Program for emerging adults in the Washington, DC area. Kathy loves life and people! She also loves quiet, reflective time for herself. She really enjoys people with a good sense of humor and loves to laugh. Kathy tends to approach her own life the same as her work - marveling at the courage and resilience of the human spirit. People truly amaze her. She has worked and traveled extensively, most recently to trek the Everest Region of the Himalayas. Kathy just gets a kick out of life in general. Kathy is a wonderful fit personally, culturally, clinically and operationally and Calo Programs is ecstatic to have her on the team!

Addiction has little to do with illicit substances. It’s just not about drugs. Or gambling, or shopping, or porn or whatever behavior happens to ruin the lives of millions. Instead, addiction is about the emotional pain behind the behavior. And healing is about confronting the past and untangling the circumstances that drive the individual to self-medicate. Addiction is a predisposition programmed in early years — a disease rooted in environmental factors that hard wire brain neurochemistry during formative childhood development. Accordingly, those that suffer should not be shamed, but instead treated with compassion, and specialized intervention that addresses the root cause. At @Calo Young Adults we #GoToTheRoot.

Victims of childhood sexual abuse are far more likely to become obese adults. New research shows that early trauma is so damaging that it can disrupt a person’s entire psychology and metabolism. http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2015/12/sexual-abuse-victims-obesity/420186/
