PTSD Treatment in San Diego

Treatment for Trauma

PTSD Treatment

Trauma leads to the repeated involuntary triggering of a stress reaction in the body, which often causes one to feel overwhelming fear and helplessness. Instead of experiencing the trauma just once, the mind/body continues to relive the traumatic memory over and over, lasting months, years, or decades. This continual hyper-arousal causes severe stress on the body and deep physical and emotional pain.

This incessant stress on your mind and body eventually takes its toll by manifesting evident signs of a traumatic memory, that clearly has not healed.

Casa Palmera’s team of highly specialized professionals works to design a unique healing program to address, treat, and heal your specific trauma-related symptoms.

Signs of Trauma

It’s important to get treatment as soon as possible when symptoms are interfering with the quality of your life, your well-being, and your relationships. Without professional treatment, symptoms of trauma will likely worsen and could soon become disabling.

Common warning signs that indicate the need for treatment include:

  • Depression/Anxiety
  • Abuse of drugs and/or alcohol
  • Disturbances in appetite and/or changes in eating patterns
  • Inability to trust others
  • Difficulty concentrating/easily distracted
  • Feeling uncomfortable or anxious in social situations
  • Recurring thoughts from the trauma interfering with everyday life

What you need to know about trauma: Each person experiences situations differently. What may be traumatic to one person might not necessarily impact another in the same way. It is important to remember that many factors contribute to how a person experiences and remembers a significant event.

Examples of traumatic events include:

  • physical injury
  • physical/emotional abuse
  • neglect
  • witnessing death
  • losing a loved one
  • a natural disaster
