Traumatic events — such as an accident, assault, military combat, or natural disaster — can have lasting effects on a person’s mental health. When a person develops post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), their brain produces fewer endorphins than a healthy brain, making them more likely to turn toward alcohol or drugs to feel happy. Our PTSD treatment in Huntington Beach works with people who are struggling with trauma and have turned to substance abuse to treat their symptoms.
The goal of the PTSD dual diagnosis program at Newsong Recovery is to identify and address the root causes of the PTSD and provide each patient with the tools necessary to empower them to achieve long-term recovery.
Although PTSD cannot be cured, it can be treated and managed in several ways. Common PTSD treatments used at Newsong Recovery include:
● Cognitive processing therapy
● Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
● Exposure therapy
● Group therapy
● Antidepressant medications
● Mindfulness and meditation strategies and practices
To create a successful outcome, our dual diagnosis PTSD treatment will be finely tailored to your own unique, specific needs.
Newsong Recovery’s PTSD dual diagnosis program is closely supervised by a team of board-certified psychiatrists with more than 35 years of experience using the latest evidence-based approaches to treat the whole person.
At Newsong Recovery, your dual diagnosis treatment will begin with a comprehensive evaluation to determine the most effective combination of psychotherapy, medications, and complementary health approaches. Based on the findings, combined with a thorough and compassionate discussion with you, the psychiatrists will formulate the best course of action for your treatment.
With the right combination of therapies, PTSD can be treated.
