Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Treatment

Effective PTSD Treatment

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can affect individuals who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event, such as near death, violence, or sexual assault. It is characterized by a variety of distressing symptoms that develop after the event and can significantly impact a person’s daily life.

Understanding PTSD: Signs and Symptoms

PTSD manifests through a range of distressing symptoms, which can significantly affect your daily life. These symptoms generally fall into four categories

Intrusive Thoughts
Recurrent, distressing memories, nightmares, and flashbacks that make you feel as if you're reliving the traumatic event.
Avoidance Behaviors
Active avoidance of reminders associated with the trauma, including places, people, thoughts, or activities, often leading to social withdrawal and isolation.
Negative Mood and Cognition
Persistent negative emotions, guilt, self-blame, diminished interest in once-enjoyable activities, along with potential memory impairments and concentration difficulties.
Changes in Arousal and Reactivity
Heightened anxiety, increased arousal, difficulty sleeping, startle response, irritability, anger outbursts, and risky behaviors.

Who Can Experience PTSD and When?

PTSD doesn’t pick who it affects – it can happen to anyone, no matter their age, gender, or background. According to experts at the National Institute of Mental Health, about 3.6% of adults in the U.S. had PTSD in the last year. Over the course of a lifetime, around 7-8% of people might go through PTSD. Sometimes, the symptoms show up within three months of a tough experience, but they can also appear years later and stick around for different amounts of time.

Diagnosis: Expert Evaluation at Excel Psychiatry

Diagnosing PTSD requires a thorough assessment by our skilled mental health professionals at Excel Psychiatry. We conduct an in-depth evaluation of your symptoms, medical history, and the triggering traumatic event. Our approach adheres to the criteria outlined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), ensuring accurate diagnosis and personalized treatment planning.

Personalized Treatment Approaches

Our comprehensive PTSD treatment approach combines medication, therapy, and specialized therapeutic techniques to ensure the best possible outcome for you.

Psychotherapy plays a pivotal role in PTSD treatment. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) helps you challenge and manage negative thoughts associated with the trauma. Exposure therapy gradually desensitizes you to traumatic triggers, reducing fear and anxiety. Group and family therapy provides additional support.
Our specialized EMDR therapy assists in processing traumatic memories, decreasing their emotional impact. EMDR involves bilateral stimulation through eye movements or hysical sensations, aiding in reprocessing and healing.
