One of the best methods of addressing one’s current situation is to revisit past traumas. Trauma is stored in both the body and the mind. How these physical and psychological ordeals combine to manifest themselves in a person provides workable solutions to ongoing problems. Women’s trauma treatment has made strides in recent years in that the approach has changed from focusing on purely psychological symptoms to acknowledging how those memories have affected people somatically, in the body.
At The Willows at Red Oak Recovery, located just outside Asheville, North Carolina, we have established an effective gender-based trauma treatment program for women. Run by master’s level clinicians, each wellness treatment program we have available provides individualized attention to our clients.
Trauma left unresolved can lie in wait for years, if not decades, before it resurfaces and negatively impacts one’s life and relationships. In order to forge ahead confidently through life, one must first deal with the emotional and psychological anguish of the past. Our effective dual diagnosis treatment provides real solutions to these lingering problems. For more information about the treatment options available, please contact The Willows at Red Oak Recovery today at 855.773.0614.
What Is Trauma Therapy?
The first objective is to put a finger on what types of trauma one may be experiencing. While emotional and sexual abuse are two of the most common forms of trauma, there are also traumatic accidents and combat trauma. Unfortunately, many people do not realize these have lasting psychological damage. Another type of trauma our treatment program addresses is the trauma associated with crimes or natural disasters. Whatever type of trauma you have delayed seeking proper treatment for, we have workable and proven solutions to provide relief.
Signs of Trauma
Two of the main signs of psychological trauma are fear and anxiety. Because these are common with most people to varying degrees, one is not always aware of how these could be the manifestation of past trauma. When these feelings linger and regularly disrupt one’s mood, they need to be focused on rather than be ignored. Experiencing mood swings and confusion, particularly becoming irritable or having trouble concentrating on simple tasks, are clear signs that delayed reactions to past traumatic events are coming to the surface. This is often met with disbelief or denial because they are not the product of recent events. But the past is part of the present, and these symptoms need to be addressed.
Treatment Methods for Trauma
As everyone’s personal trauma is unique to them, so must an effective treatment program be designed with this in mind. Both individual therapy and group counseling are essential to one’s recovery. Family and community programs are also crucial. These groups also feel trauma’s effects and are essential in getting the person experiencing trauma back on their feet. Medication-based therapy is also an option.
