Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may be more common than you think. PTSD can happen to anyone who has experienced a traumatic or life-threatening situation. If you experience the following symptoms, PTSD might be an issue in your life:
- Inability to sleep well at night
- Reliving past trauma through nightmares, flashbacks, feelings of illness or distressing intrusive memories
- Mood swings, anger, irritability, depression or suicidal feelings
- Inability to trust other people
- Hyper alert moods, feeling jumpy, difficulty concentrating and nervous feelings
- Attempts to self-medicate difficult emotions with drugs or alcohol
Post-traumatic stress can take over your life. It can affect your happiness, your relationships and your employment. If alcohol, drugs or compulsive behavior have become part of your PTSD pattern, it may be time to seek real help. Traditional substance abuse treatment facilities are not usually equipped to help patients overcome PTSD or other anxiety disorders. Foundations Recovery Network offers specialized programs to help you treat and manage your PTSD effectively.
PTSD Treatment for Soldiers and Military Professionals
While PTSD affects everyone and certainly not just military professionals, we do work with many military families in crisis. Not every military professional chooses to seek PTSD treatment on a military base. Many soldiers and professional military personnel choose to avoid government PTSD assistance in order to maintain autonomy and privacy. Advanced officers often skip the treatment they need in fear that their PTSD or addiction problems may affect future promotions. Foundations Recovery Network offers a specialized program to help military professionals and their families get back on track. We offer advanced treatment methods including the following:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
- Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
We have the educated staff and overall experience to help you put your trauma safely in the past. As with all of our treatment programs, we work hard to maintain your confidentiality and strictly follow all HIPPA privacy regulations to ensure patient privacy.
Integrated Treatment for PTSD and Addiction
PTSD and addiction often work together. Because PTSD causes such unpleasant symptoms, it is no wonder that many people attempt to self-medicate with alcohol or drugs. Addictive substances only offer a temporary relief from PTSD symptoms and often lead to dependence and addiction, creating a cycle of abuse that is difficult to break. Integrated treatment can help. Foundations Recovery Network specializes in integrated treatment for both mental health conditions and addiction. Our integrated programs can help you treat the PTSD symptoms that make addiction worse while treating the addiction that keeps your anxiety coming back. Integrated treatment is both evidence-based and well researched. You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to learn more about our unique PTSD programs and recovery professionals.
