Living through a trauma can change the way you view yourself and the world. This experience can become even more difficult to manage when you’re struggling with a substance use disorder along with the effects of posttraumatic stress disorder.
Being a trauma survivor doesn’t have to permanently impact your quality of life. Making the decision to get addiction and co-occurring posttraumatic stress disorder treatment is an act of courage that can put you on the path to better health.
The Benefits of Treatment for Co-Occurring Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
When you seek addiction and co-occurring posttraumatic stress disorder treatment, you can begin to process the trauma that has caused the intense experiences, overwhelming emotions, and physical pain you’ve been suffering from.
Throughout the treatment process, you’ll gain healthier coping tools that will help you manage daily tasks, perform better at work, and start to rebuild trusting relationships. You’ll also learn relapse prevention techniques so that you can experience sustained recovery from the substance use disorder you’ve been struggling with.
By getting co-occurring PTSD treatment, you’ll also learn that you are not alone in your experience as a trauma survivor. You’ll meet others who are living with the impact of trauma, allowing you to build a support network you can have with you long after you leave treatment.
Choosing the Right Co-Occurring Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Treatment
Healing from trauma is an individual process, and it’s important that you choose the type and level of care that is right for you.
Wellness Resource Center offers treatment options that can help you achieve lasting recovery from addiction and co-occurring posttraumatic stress disorder.
Co-occurring posttraumatic stress disorder treatment at our center begins with phase I, which is our partial hospitalization program (PHP) with community housing. Clients start building the skills they need to transition back to their daily lives through the highly structured support of the day treatment environment.
Phase II of co-occurring PTSD treatment at Wellness Resource Center is our intensive outpatient program (IOP). This step-down level of care offers part-time treatment that supports clients as they seek employment and more fully transition back to their communities.
As you progress through co-occurring PTSD treatment, we may recommend that you transition to phase III, which is long-term support provided through transitional housing or sober living. We will work with you every step of the way to identify the level of care that best fits your needs.
