Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Post-traumatic stress disorder, commonly referred to as PTSD, can impact individuals from all walks of life, but Fresh Start Behavioral Health can help!

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a complex and occasionally debilitating mental health condition characterized by a range of possible symptoms. It commonly revolves around an experience of trauma, whether directly encountered or witnessed happening to others. PTSD can also manifest when individuals learn about the violent or unexpected death of a family member or friend.

Examples of trauma include:

  • exposure to war zones
  • incidents of physical or sexual assault
  • natural disasters
  • serious accidents
  • terrorist attacks
  • child sexual or physical abuse

The onset of the illness may be immediate or delayed, and symptoms may fluctuate over an extended period, spanning many years.

PTSD is a diverse diagnosis, and as such, your treatment plan should be tailored to suit your individual needs.

Both psychotherapy and medication have demonstrated efficacy in addressing PTSD. PTSD treatment is personalized to individual needs, combining psychotherapy and medication. Antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications may offer relief. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) addresses PTSD by confronting fears, challenging memories, and addressing negative thought patterns.
