Common Questions About Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a mental health condition that develops after a traumatic event. It’s normal to develop feelings of fear or unease after experiencing something terrifying.

While most people recover from a traumatic event without it interfering with their everyday lives, some people have a more difficult time and develop symptoms that affect their mood and behavior. With this disorder, you may feel stress or fear even when there is no danger.

Your Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder symptoms may develop soon after the incident or years later. For a diagnosis, your symptoms must last a month or more and interfere with your relationships and responsibilities. Symptoms include:

  • Flashbacks and nightmares
  • Avoiding triggers
  • An exaggerated startle response
  • A quickness to anger or emotional outbursts
  • Impaired memory of the traumatic event
  • Low self-esteem

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder doesn’t occur in everyone who goes through something traumatic. For example, you’re more at risk of the mental health condition if:

  • You lived through a traumatic, life-altering event
  • The trauma occurred during your childhood
  • You were injured or you saw someone else injured
  • There has been little emotional support

Treatment for your PTSD includes medication and psychotherapy. The experienced team at Creative Care offers a comprehensive inpatient treatment program to provide the ongoing care you need to recover from your PTSD. Your treatment may include:

  • Psychotherapy
  • Professional observation
  • Nutrition therapy
  • Equine-assisted psychotherapy
  • Yoga
  • Expressive art therapy
