Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

A mental health condition that you may develop in response to a traumatic event, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) often causes symptoms such as avoidance, severe anxiety, and flashbacks. Combat exposure, childhood abuse, sexual violence, physical assault, and many other situations can cause PTSD. Even though you cannot change the fact that the trauma occurred, we can help you reduce the resulting symptoms. Because most people who live with PTSD also live with additional mental health conditions like anxiety or depression, it’s important that you are evaluated for them as well and receive comprehensive treatment. Our psychiatrists and medical team at Elite DNA Behavioral Health will do an evaluation to determine if you are experiencing PTSD. The primary treatment for PTSD is psychotherapy but can also include medication. Types of Psychotherapy that are beneficial for PTSD include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Exposure therapy, and Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). We have many therapists who specialize in these areas and offer the SHIFT Trauma Therapy Program at our home office, a safe and neutral space to receive treatment for PTSD.
