Delray Center for Healing offers both a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Intensive Outpatient Program and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Partial Hospitalization Program for individuals living with the negative effects of untreated trauma. During this program and throughout PTSD counseling, individuals living with the effects of trauma can develop the skills they need to manage symptoms of PTSD. And, work to identify various individual needs so they can utilize the therapeutic tools and coping skills that will work for them,
The Development of PTSD
PTSD, or post traumatic stress disorder, is a mental health condition that develops as a result of experiencing traumatic situations. Quiet suffering from trauma can often derive from childhood abuse and neglect, rape, military combat, accidents, natural disasters, and more.
Symptoms of PTSD and Trauma
While some individuals exhibit symptoms such as anxiety, depression, and a constant struggle to “move forward” in life. Others turn to substance abuse to help ease their pain and self-medicate symptoms. Still, others may suffer silently, offering only subtle hints to the pain that lies within. However, the effects of trauma can differ from person to person. But, there are some diagnostic symptoms of PTSD that are used in characterizing this condition which include:
Having flashbacks of the traumatic event(s) that led to the development of PTSD
Intentional avoidance of people, places, or things that could bring about flashbacks of the event(s)
Problems sleeping (too much or too little sleep)
Mood swings and irritability
Apathy and numbness of emotion
Feelings of detachment from others
Trouble focusing on tasks
Feelings of guilt
Loss of interest in passions/hobbies
We understand that not all individuals deal with the same effects of PTSD. And, that because this condition is different from patient to patient, individualized care and PTSD counseling is important. That’s why our experienced team of highly trained and compassionate Therapists is adept at identifying and treating post-trauma reactions while remaining sensitive to the unique needs of individuals and families affected by these conditions.
Getting Help for PTSD Through Treatment
When PTSD goes untreated, individuals living with this condition put themselves at risk for other issues. Most commonly, dealing with survivor’s guilt, which is feelings of guilt and shame after experiencing a traumatic event or events. As a result of this survivor’s guilt and other symptoms of PTSD, these individuals may also battle with:
Drug and alcohol addiction
Sex and love addiction
Suicidal thoughts and/or actions
Unhealthy desire to work all the time
During PTSD treatment and counseling, it’s important to identify and address concurrent issues PTSD patients may be living with. Through therapy, individuals can learn the proper coping skills and emotional tools needed to deal with lifelong symptoms of trauma. And, learn to manage the concurrent issues they deal with as a result of the trauma they’ve faced.
