Christian PTSD Treatment Program
Christian PTSD Treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder which is a very real condition that impacts all areas of survivors’ lives. In addition to the man or woman who suffers from PTSD, family and friends are also affected. Unfortunately, many who suffer from PTSD don’t get the help they need. They cope with it as best they can, and just continue to suffer. While some of the symptoms of PTSD may resolve themselves over time, untreated PTSD can linger for years, and can lead to a variety of other issues, such as substance abuse, chronic depression, anxiety and even suicide. This is a condition that should be taken seriously, and no one should have to just “tolerate” it.
Post-traumatic stress disorder affects approximately 7.8% of the population at some point in their lives. This goes to show you how common PTSD really is. Many people associate the condition with military veterans who have been in combat, and while that is a common cause of PTSD, it isn’t the only one. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder can come about as a result of domestic violence or assault, childhood sexual or physical abuse, natural disaster, experiencing or witnessing violence, automobile accidents or other traumatic events. Women are twice as likely to experience PTSD as men. In addition, women’s PTSD symptoms may go undiagnosed, either because they don’t seek help for their symptoms, or they are misdiagnosed. It’s common for a woman to go to a doctor with PTSD symptoms and be told she has anxiety and given a prescription. While prescription medication may be used in the treatment of PTSD, it should never be the sole course of action. PTSD requires comprehensive treatment and meds alone will not fully address it. New Creation Treatment’s Christian PTSD treatment for women is proud to offer a comprehensive medical, psychological and spiritual PTSD treatment program with traditional Christian values combined with the best medical practices.
Christian PTSD Treatment Program for Women with Complex Disorder
Women often experience trauma over long periods of time. This may result from long-term sexual abuse in childhood or domestic violence. This type of long-term trauma can give the victim the feeling that they have no control over their lives. Their symptoms don’t just go away, they linger on for years, and create a host of issues that affect their relationships choices, their ability to care for themselves and their ability to care for others. Women will often minimize the impact of their trauma, feeling that it wasn’t “bad enough” and may not recognize their symptoms as being related to their trauma.
