Substance Abuse and the Torture Survivor Experience

This webinar, presented by the National Partnership for Community Training, features Dr. Eric Wagner and Dr. Richard Mollica.

The varying degrees of trauma experienced by refugees and torture survivors can have physical, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral effects. In order to cope, forget, or ignore the impact of violent conflict, flight, resettlement, and adjustment some refugees and torture survivors may turn to substance use.
