Can trauma cause the use of drugs?
My dad was in Rwanda during the genocide in 1994 helping the peacekeepers and came back and started using many illegal drugs. He's been sober for years now but I was just thinking about that.

Sometimes people take up using illegal drugs, alcohol, gambling, etc. to escape reality. However, this just makes life worse for them and they end up trading one bad thing for another.

Yes, going through a traumatic experience is one of the most common reasons for people to begin using drugs. For them, it is an escape. The higher they get the more their problems disappear and it soon becomes an outlet to the pain and trauma they feel inside. Good for him for being sober now! That's truly amazing.

Many people who undergo significant trauma attempt to cope with substance abuse.

I'm no expert, but I wouldn't be suprised if it did. I don't think that trauma directly causes drug use, but it may make a person more susceptible to becoming addicted to drugs.
