Trauma often accompanies mental health issues and substance use disorders. We offer dedicated treatment for trauma disorders, such as PTSD and panic disorders, as well as comprehensive treatment for co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
PTSD can affect anyone, and it may be more common than you might have thought. Nearly 8% of the US population will experience post-traumatic stress at some point in their lives, the result of experiencing or witnessing abuse, an accident or another form of trauma. We treat PTSD with evidence-based, trauma-focused psychotherapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy.
Unspecified Trauma Disorders
Not everyone who experiences trauma will develop PTSD, but this doesn’t mean they have escaped without scars. Many who experience trauma will struggle with unspecified trauma disorders that mirror anxiety, depression, and other mental health disorders. Trauma can also play a big factor in substance abuse, which makes treatment a necessary part of recovery for those clients.
Panic disorders aren’t always a symptom of trauma, but traumatic events often trigger symptoms. These may include heart palpitations, shaking, difficulty breathing, and generalized anxiety. We treat panic disorders as a stand-alone mental health disorder, and in conjunction with other disorders, as they are often experienced.
