Trauma Therapy Atlanta

Trauma Therapy Atlanta

When we experience a horrific incident, our brains store the information, which causes a psychological response. Upsetting events can lead to long-lasting trauma disorders that inhibit your ability to perform regular functions. While this is one of the most difficult mental health conditions to overcome, you are not alone in the journey. 

Inner Voyage Recovery Center specializes in trauma treatment to help you address past issues and move on from them. We understand your experiences are unique to you, which is why we offer personalized treatment plans and counseling.

What Causes Trauma?

There are many underlying causes of trauma affecting both children and adults. Every traumatic event can produce different stressors that survivors must cope with. Examples of traumatic events include but are not limited to the following:

  • Emotional neglect or abuse
  • Sexual assault
  • Domestic violence
  • Serving in or living through wars
  • Natural disasters

Trauma Comes in Different Forms

Traumatic events tend to trigger psychological disorders like anxiety and depression, as well as harmful symptoms. Survivors may have trouble sleeping, have thoughts about harming themselves, or experience intense flashbacks to the event. The rate at which you develop these symptoms determines which trauma disorder you have. 

Learn more about the main types of traumatic response disorders below:

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Prolonged distress after experiencing a traumatic event, which becomes chronic PTSD if symptoms last more than three months.
  • Acute Stress Disorder: An immediate reaction after a traumatic event, which can last up to three weeks and potentially evolve into PTSD.
  • Delayed-Onset PTSD: Describes trauma responses that don’t start until at least six months after the event occurs.
  • Complex Trauma: Emotional and psychological responses that typically stem from an ongoing situation instead of a one-time event.

How To Overcome Trauma

Healing from traumatic events requires changing your mindset and learning to cope with stressors that remind you of the trauma’s source. Therapy is the most beneficial treatment for these psychological issues because every patient and traumatic event is different. Our trained therapists cater their treatment to your experience and needs so you can heal faster in a way that fits your lifestyle and goals. 

Speaking with a professional about your experiences and emotions lets them identify concerning thought patterns. They will then help you understand your emotional responses and introduce strategies to cope with your situation. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for overcoming traumatic events, but our compassionate staff can explore every avenue that could offer you much-needed relief. 

We offer trauma-specific therapy as well as group, family, and cognitive behavioral therapy. We’ll work with you to determine the best course of treatment and monitor your progress.
