Trauma Treatment Center for Women & Girls

Traumatic events can cause lasting damage to virtually all aspects of an individual’s life. Making the decision to enter a trauma treatment center demonstrates both courage and hope. Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center offers personalized care and comprehensive support for women and girls who are struggling with the effects of trauma.   

The Benefits of Trauma Treatment 

Directly experiencing, witnessing, or otherwise being exposed to a traumatic event can cause significant distress.  

Women and girls who need, but do not receive, professional treatment for trauma may struggle to maintain healthy relationships, make appropriate progress in school or at work, and otherwise fully engage in a productive and satisfying independent lifestyle. 

The exact benefits of trauma treatment will vary for each woman or girl depending on their unique circumstances. In general, when womaor girl gets individualized care at an effective trauma treatment center, they can identify and address the specific ways in which their life has been affected by trauma.  

When they work together in close collaboration with a team of trauma treatment professionals, women and girls can process their experiences, develop better coping skills, and learn to manage the impact trauma has had on their lives.  

Choosing the Right Trauma Treatment 

When you’re struggling with the untreated effects of trauma, it’s important to choose the trauma treatment center that is best prepared to meet your specific needs. Making this decision involves understanding the features and benefits of various levels of care. 

Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center offers trauma treatment at the residential and partial hospitalization levels. 

Our residential programming provides round-the-clock support for adolescent girls ages 12-17 and adult women age 18 and older. Your care will follow an individualized plan that includes multiple forms of evidence-based therapies and services. During your time in our residential trauma treatment program, you will live in one of our comfortable lodges. 

Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) offers trauma treatment for adult women age 18 and older. If you receive trauma treatment at the PHP level, you will benefit from full days of services provided by experienced professionals. When treatment is not in session, you may either return home or choose our on-campus housing option.  

Adult women can enter our trauma treatment center directly at the PHP level, or they may step down to our PHP after completing our residential program.
