If you have been through traumatic events in your life, it is possible that those events affected you in negative ways. Not only can that be hard on your mental health, but it can also cause issues with addiction, binge drinking, gambling, and other related types of problems if you do not treat them properly at a mental health treatment and addiction center. That can leave you asking yourself more about PTSD and how it is affecting your life. If you ask this question, there is likely a part of you who already knows the answer. Generally, people who have been through traumatic experiences are affected by those experiences, and the effect is often not pleasant. But you can get past that when you come to us at Crestview Recovery. We want to help you succeed at living a healthier and better life through PTSD treatment in Portland.
What Is PTSD?
PTSD, or post-traumatic stress disorder, is a mental health condition that can occur after trauma. It is often seen in soldiers, but it can occur in anyone who has had at least one traumatic event in their life. The more events they have experienced, the higher their chances of having mental health problems. But it only takes one trauma to cause PTSD in some people — and the definition of trauma can also be different for each person. Something that one person does not consider traumatic may be devastating to another person.
At Crestview Recovery, we can give you options for help and hope through our addiction therapy services to help you overcome your trauma. Our dual diagnosis therapists have the training and experience to help people manage various mental health problems. Our dual diagnosis mental health programs offer people the tools they need to heal. There are some specific mental health issues therapists commonly treat, including:
- Schizoaffective disorder
- Post-traumatic stress
- Personality disorders
- Relationship issues
- Severe depression
Treatment for PTSD
With a quality treatment program, you can get the help you need. You can find out more about PTSD and get answers you can rely on. That is a great way to start down the path to recovery. But you still need people you can trust to help you. With our trained and caring staff, you will have the right level of support and the proper type of treatment. PTSD can be very similar in many people but can also manifest in different ways in others. We can help you work through past traumas and have a brighter future. Some of the treatment programs we offer include:
Partial hospitalization program (PHP)
Our PHP is perfect for those who need a higher level of care than what our outpatient program offers but do not require 24/7 inpatient care. This program is perfect for those who are struggling to maintain stability in their lives.
Intensive outpatient program (IOP)
If you need more structure than what our outpatient program offers, our IOP might be a good fit for you. IOP is a more intensive level of care that requires you to come to our facility several times per week. But you will still be able to live at home and go to work or school while in treatment.
Once you have completed your time in our program, we want to make sure you have the resources you need to stay on track. We offer aftercare planning and support groups to help you transition back into your life.
This type of therapy is designed to help you work through the traumas that have led to your PTSD. It can be a very effective way to start your recovery.
Dual diagnosis treatment
If you are struggling with PTSD and a substance use disorder, this type of therapy will address both issues.
You will meet with a therapist one-on-one to discuss the issues you are facing. This is a great opportunity to receive more personalized attention and focus on your unique needs.
