What Is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?
Traumatic events can have lasting effects, and for the nearly 9 million U.S. adults suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), it can impact daily life. At Red Top Wellness Center, we offer comprehensive residential care in Georgia for those suffering from PTSD.
PTSD can present itself at any age and affects everyone differently. A qualified healthcare provider can diagnose someone with PTSD based on a discussion regarding the types of symptoms presented as well as the frequency and duration of these symptoms. It is important to note that certain symptoms are similar to other mental illnesses, so your provider might recommend additional therapy to better understand whether PTSD is a co-occurring condition or not.
Symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder can include:
- Avoiding social events, crowds, or triggering situations
- Trouble sleeping or concentrating
- Experiencing flashbacks or dreams
- Thoughts of harming yourself or others
- Wetting the bed (most often presents in children)
If left untreated, PTSD symptoms can worsen and begin to affect relationships and performing daily activities.
Why Choose Our Facility?
Our goal at Red Top Wellness Center is to help those suffering from PTSD restore their self-esteem, control emotions, eliminate re-experiencing events, and reduce anxiety. We strive to reach this goal by crafting a tailored treatment plan that might utilize a combination of medication and therapies to meet your unique needs. Therapies can range from cognitive processing therapy (CPT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and exposure therapy to acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and group therapy. If needed, we pair these therapies with medication management, with antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications being most commonly prescribed for those suffering from debilitating symptoms.
