Trauma & PTSD

Treatment for Trauma & PTSD

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) affects 3.5% of the U.S. adult population. When we experience a traumatic event, the body focuses all our resources on surviving the event physically. This can result in a damage to the brain’s response system, called PTSD. PTSD in adults is characterized by flashbacks or bad dreams of the traumatic event, avoidance of objects or places that are reminders of the traumatic event, outburst of anger, out-of-body experiences and feeling tense or startled easily. PTSD in children is often characterized by extreme temper tantrums, acting out scary events during playtime and forgetting how or being unable to talk.

Mind Springs Health offers several effective treatment methods for both children and adults who’ve been through a traumatic event and/or are suffering from mild to severe PTSD, including: Counseling & Therapy for Trauma & PTSD, Hospitalization for Trauma & PTSD and Ongoing Resources to Manage Trauma & PTSD.
