At Origins, we believe that cutting-edge treatment takes trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder into account. Our highly trained staff is skilled in working with people who have experienced trauma.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Both men and women suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) which is precipitated by traumatic experiences in one’s life. Many women in drug and alcohol treatment have been the victim of some form of verbal and physical abuse.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) results from one or more traumatic life experience that become embedded in one’s mind and affects one’s life. Women who suffer from substance abuse have a 70% or higher incidence of experiencing PTSD in their lives.
War veterans also suffer from high rates of PTSD. They often turn to alcohol or drugs for relief. PTSD symptoms can include:
Psychological staff members collaborate with each patient’s multidisciplinary treatment team to review a patient’s progress and identify any further psychological issues that may emerge during treatment. Treatment may also include EMDR Psychotherapy.
Our multidisciplinary team of health care professionals at the Lawlis-Peavey PsychoNeuroPlasticity (PNP) Center collaborate to find solutions to the variety of challenges in a person’s neurological and psychological development including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other co-occurring disorders.
Origins’ gender-separate treatment philosophy is based on professional experience and clinical data that demonstrates the separation of men and women into their own milieus can substantially improve outcomes. This is also a critical factor when addressing trauma.
Women are much more likely to have been the victims of trauma, abuse or neglect than their addicted male counterparts, which is precisely why our programs use evidence-based, trauma-informed treatment curriculums that are individualized to meet the needs of every woman who seeks refuge and recovery at Origins.
