Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

 

At Rehab Guide, we are dedicated to treating addiction, along with examining the deep rooted causes of mental and developmental problems and issues of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

 

It is our contention that trauma may be the underlying cause of many people’s struggle with addiction as well as other complaints. They may stem from trauma suffered as a grown up or going back to childhood, which has stayed with them into adulthood. The trauma may have been the catalyst which drove them to substance abuse, be it drugs or alcohol.

 

Rehab Guide is unique in that, while other treatment centres concentrate on curing a person’s drug or alcohol use, we see trauma as a possible contributing factor in bringing about a relapse, so we want to address that too. Where we don’t just see the surface problem, we also get down to the core.

 

We at Rehab Guide employ the latest innovation from the US, the one of a kind NAD+ protocol, in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder. Where you will be under the care of our highly qualified team of trauma and addiction therapists.

 

This cutting edge treatment counters the loss of brain chemicals called neurotransmitters, which are depleted as a result of post-traumatic stress disorder. Through our nutrient-based NAD+ protocols, consisting partly of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, we give the brain what it requires to function properly by replacing the neurotransmitters, allowing you to overcome PTSD.

 

Be assured that our trauma therapy treatment will take place in the safest, friendliest environment where you could speak to our experienced therapists as part of your complete rehabilitation programme. Where we will provide you with all of the counselling, care and support you need to conquer your post-traumatic stress disorder, which in turn, can help you deal with any addiction issues.

A traumatic event in itself may not cause a person to suffer PTSD. It is how they feel in the aftermath. Where they experience heightened fear, shame and guilt, as well as a sense of loneliness, powerlessness and vulnerability, often resulting in trauma. These emotions can linger long after the event. However, there are many different events which could contribute to PTSD, which may contain the following elements:

 

It occurred suddenly and unexpectedly

A person was unprepared or had not learned to cope with it in advance

It occurred when you were a child

It was intentionally cruel and violent

You felt helpless and powerless during the event

You felt overwhelming fear during the event

The event made you feel intense shame or guilt.

It was a repeated event, happening more than once.

 

We at Rehab Guide understand that a person suffering from PTSD may find it hard to show their emotions. They may have kept their trauma locked up inside them for years and may have trouble talking about it. Be rest assured though that we are always sensitives to your needs and will treat anything you say with the strictest confidence. Our trained therapists and staff are here to help you or someone close to you, put the trauma of your past behind you, so that you can live a happy and fulfilled life once again.
