Learn More About Trauma and PTSD Treatment
Treatment for trauma & PTSD at Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center
Trauma can take many forms, and if you’ve experienced things like violence, assault, unexpected loss, active duty, natural disaster, or abuse, you are at an increased risk for developing the mental health disorder known as PTSD. This painful condition can impact your mental, physical, and emotional health in significant ways. It can rob you of your ability to attend to the tasks of daily living, impact your eating and sleeping patterns, and make it hard to perform to potential at work or school.
When struggling with PTSD, your life may seem ruled by triggering memories of the traumatic event(s), and you may soon find yourself withdrawing from loved ones or activities you used to enjoy. PTSD involves a pervasive fear of people, places, and things that remind you of your trauma. These fears can be so intense that you begin shaping your life to avoid exposure to anything that may cause your symptoms to worsen.
Fortunately, there are more options for effective trauma and PTSD treatment than ever before. At Timberline Knolls, our expert treatment team understands how PTSD impacts the girls and women we serve. We are here to create a unique treatment experience that reflects your strengths and your presenting symptoms so that you can begin living the healthy life you deserve – one no longer marked by the fears and triggers that accompany PTSD.
