What is PTSD?
Post-traumatic stress disorder, also known as PTSD, is a mental health condition that is triggered after you have witnessed or experienced a traumatic event. The trauma symptoms of PTSD can include severe anxiety, flashbacks, nightmares, and recurring thoughts about the event. If not treated, these traumatic stress symptoms can often last for months or years, can lead to self-destructive behaviors, and can drastically interrupt your daily routine.
For those who experience PTSD, receiving proper treatment, trauma therapy, and gaining skills for self-care are critical for improving the quality of daily life and reducing symptoms.
Causes of PTSD
The causes of PTSD can vary, but any individual who has experienced a traumatic event can develop traumatic stress. PTSD symptoms may sometimes not appear until years after the traumatic experiences. These unwanted memories can surface at any time, causing feelings of trauma that can interfere with everyday life. Some specific causes of PTSD can include:
Experiencing or witnessing stressful events
The recurrence of intrusive memories
A family history of anxiety or depression
One’s response to trauma and stress
PTSD and Substance Abuse
Individuals with PTSD are oftentimes at higher risk for experiencing substance abuse and co-occurring illnesses such as anxiety, bipolar disorder, and depression. At Chicago Rehab Center, our expert team takes a whole-person approach to enable you to start healing. The supportive environment at CRC will look at more than the traumatic experience: Trauma counselors will put together a complete recovery plan, rather than simply addressing one symptom of your current condition. Our mental health therapy program meets you where you are at and carefully develops a plan that is right for you. A combination of talk therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, traditional programs, and modern therapies will all be considered as part of your individualized plan.
