Posttraumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a mental health disorder that occurs in the aftermath of one or more traumatic incidents. Among the general public, PTSD is perhaps most commonly associated with military combat, but this disorder can be brought on by a wide range of other experiences and can affect individuals of all ages. Physical attacks, sexual assault, abuse or neglect, serious automobile accidents, and acts of terrorism are among the many events that can precede the onset of PTSD.

Why Consider Treatment

Why consider treatment for PTSD at Southstone Recovery Center in South Boston, VA

Untreated PTSD can have a devastating impact on an adult’s life. A person who needs, but does not receive, comprehensive professional treatment for PTSD may experience a wide range of negative outcomes and may struggle with increasingly more severe effects. 

Adults who develop PTSD may withdraw from or push away friends, family members, and other sources of vital interpersonal support. They may act in ways that cause problems within their families, among peers, and at work. They may find it difficult or impossible to make appropriate progress, which can put them at increased risk for failure, expulsion, or quitting. 

Untreated PTSD can also increase the likelihood that an adult will engage in violent or aggressive behaviors, abuse alcohol or other drugs, and develop additional mental health disorders. The cumulative impact of these experiences can include considerable physical and emotional harm. They may also put the adult at risk for arrest and incarceration, among other distressing effects. 

However, when an adult receives proper professional treatment for PTSD, the likelihood that they will achieve improved quality of life increases significantly. Our PTSD treatment center in South Boston, VA, is a safe, highly structured, and extremely supportive environment. Here, adults receive the guidance and therapeutic interventions that can empower them to overcome their struggles with PTSD and achieve true and lasting healing.
