PTSD Treatment

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is a disorder in which a person has difficulty recovering after witnessing or experiencing a terrifying event. The condition may last months or years, with triggers that bring back memories of the trauma experienced, accompanied by intense physical and emotional reactions.

PTSD can be treated. With treatment, survivors of trauma can feel safe and live happy, productive lives. Evolved provides various PTSD treatment options to increase the quality of your life.

PTSD Symptoms

There are a number of symptoms that signify a need for PTSD treatment. The following are signs that you may have problems with PTSD:

  • Experiencing flashbacks of the traumatic event
  • Extreme fear or scary thoughts
  • Insomnia
  • Lack of interest in hobbies that you previously enjoyed
  • Nightmares
  • Avoiding places that might remind you of the event
  • Aggression or violent outbursts
  • Feelings of guilt, especially if others were injured or died during the event

When these symptoms start interfering your ability to function at work, effect your relationship with others, or decrease your enjoyment of life, they should be addressed through effective treatment.

Why do some experience PTSD and others do not?

There are a few factors that go into whether someone develops PTSD or not. Some people have specific risk factors that make them more likely to develop symptoms.  These factors exist even before the trauma occurs. Some of these include having a history of mental illness. If you have little or no social support after a traumatic event, this can make it more likely. After a traumatic event occurs if you are dealing with high stress, this can add to the situation and make you susceptible to PTSD. 

How long can PTSD last?
In most cases if PTSD is not treated it can last a very long time. Maybe even the rest of one's life. With some people PTSD symptoms can gradually fade over time. With others even after their symptoms fade away, things can be done to trigger reminders and bring the symptoms back.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy for PTSD Treatment

When someone is looking for PTSD Treatment, they will most likely receive cognitive behavior therapy. The reason for this is because it has been found to be one of the most effective PTSD treatment methods available. This is used in both short term and long term treatment.
