At Origins, we believe that cutting-edge treatment addresses dual-diagnosis disorders, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Our highly trained staff of masters-level therapists are skilled in treating those with past 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 percent 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:
Treatment Modalities for PTSD
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 include Somatic Experiencing or EMDR Psychotherapy.
PsychoNeuroPlasticity at Origins
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.
Gender-Separate and Gender-Specific Treatment
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.
