What is PTSD?

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that develops after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. These events can include physical or sexual assault, military combat, natural disasters, serious accidents, or the sudden loss of a loved one. PTSD can manifest through various symptoms, such as flashbacks, nightmares, severe anxiety, and uncontrollable thoughts about the event. These symptoms can significantly impair a person’s daily functioning and quality of life.

What is Trauma?

Trauma is the emotional and psychological response to an event or series of events that an individual finds deeply distressing or disturbing. Not everyone who experiences trauma will develop PTSD, but the impact of trauma can still be profound. Trauma can disrupt a person’s sense of safety, trust, and well-being, leading to a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues. Understanding the nature of trauma is the first step toward effective treatment and recovery.

If these symptoms persist for more than a month and interfere with your daily life, seeking PTSD treatment can help you regain control and start the healing process.

Types of Trauma Therapies We Offer

At Peachtree Recovery Solutions, we offer a variety of trauma-focused therapies tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual. 

Our therapies include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): This evidence-based therapy helps individuals identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors related to their trauma.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): EMDR is a specialized therapy that uses bilateral stimulation to help individuals process and integrate traumatic memories.
  • Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE): This therapy involves gradually confronting trauma-related memories, feelings, and situations to reduce their power and impact.
  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT): TF-CBT combines cognitive behavioral techniques with trauma-sensitive interventions to help individuals process and heal from trauma.

Our PTSD Treatment Programs

We understand that each individual’s journey to recovery is unique. That’s why we offer several levels of care to meet your specific needs. At Peachtree Recovery Solutions, we provide a comprehensive continuum of care, including Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), Evening IOP, and Outpatient Program (OP). 

Our PHP is designed for individuals who need intensive, structured support but do not require 24-hour hospitalization, offering a blend of individual therapy, group therapy, and holistic interventions.For those who need a flexible yet robust treatment option, our IOP allows you to maintain daily responsibilities while receiving intensive therapeutic support. Lastly, our OP serves as a step-down from higher levels of care or a primary treatment option for those whose symptoms are more manageable, providing consistent, ongoing support to help maintain progress and prevent relapse. Each program is tailored to address the specific needs and goals of our clients, ensuring that everyone receives the personalized care they deserve.

Partial Hospitalization Program

Our PHP provides intensive, structured treatment for individuals who need more support than outpatient care but do not require 24-hour hospitalization. PHP offers a comprehensive approach, including individual therapy, group therapy, and holistic therapies, to help individuals develop coping skills and begin their recovery journey.

Intensive Outpatient Program 

IOP offers a flexible treatment option for individuals who need more support than traditional outpatient care but have commitments that prevent them from attending a full-day program. Our IOP includes individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy sessions, focusing on building resilience and managing PTSD symptoms.

Outpatient Program

Our OP provides ongoing support for individuals transitioning from higher levels of care or those who need periodic therapy sessions to maintain their progress. OP includes individual and group therapy sessions tailored to each person’s needs, helping them stay on track with their recovery goals.

PTSD Statistics

Understanding the prevalence of PTSD can help raise awareness and reduce stigma. According to the National Center for PTSD, approximately 7-8% of the U.S. population will experience PTSD at some point in their lives. Additionally, About 5 out of every 100 adults (or 5%) has PTSD in any given year, and in 2020, an estimated 13 million Americans had PTSD.

Women are more likely than men to develop PTSD, with a lifetime prevalence of 10-12% compared to 5-6% in men, according to the American Psychological Association (APA). 

When Does Trauma Turn Into PTSD?

Not everyone who experiences trauma will develop PTSD. It becomes PTSD when the symptoms persist for more than a month and cause significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. Factors such as the severity and duration of the trauma, a person’s support system, and previous mental health history can influence the likelihood of developing PTSD. Early intervention and treatment are crucial in preventing the progression from trauma to PTSD.
