Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition triggered by experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. It can affect anyone at any age.
For many, time and self-care can heal the trauma of such events, but for some, the experience leads to long-lasting symptoms that can interfere with daily activities. If these symptoms persist for months or years, you may have PTSD, and getting treatment is crucial to recovering from the trauma of your experience.
At Spectrum Behavioral Health, we are here to help you process what you’ve been through, which can help to reduce your symptoms and improve function.
Symptoms of PTSD are generally grouped into four primary types:
- Changes in physical and emotional reactions
- Intrusive memories
- Negative changes in thinking and mood
Those with PTSD may experience symptoms from one or all of these categories.
We are a compassionate practice and know that the road to feeling like yourself again can be overwhelming at times. We take the time to thoroughly assess your symptoms and history before we recommend a course of treatment for you. Common treatment options include therapy, medication, and lifestyle changes.
