Types of Trauma Rehab Treatment

Types of Trauma Rehab TreatmentThose who are seeking treatment for a trauma disorder have a wide range of options to choose from. One of the first decisions to be made concerns inpatient versus outpatient treatment. Outpatient therapy may suffice for those individuals who are able to function with a reasonable degree of effectiveness in their usual environment. Typically, the client will meet with a therapist on a regular basis while continuing to live at home and attend work or school as usual.

For those with more severe trauma who find their symptoms debilitating, or for those who are not safe in their home environment, inpatient treatment might be the better choice. A residential trauma rehab center provides intensive therapy in a safe environment and allows the client to focus entirely on his or her recovery from the trauma.

Types of Residential Trauma Rehab Treatment Centers

An individual who is considering residential treatment for a trauma disorder again has several choices. Individual and/or group therapy, training in coping techniques and cognitive therapy are, generally speaking, common denominators at most treatment facilities. However, there are some treatment centers that specialize.

  • Treatment centers for specific clientele. A woman who has been subjected to rape or other sexual abuse is likely to feel more comfortable in a facility that treats only women. A veteran suffering from PTSD as a result of military combat might benefit from a treatment center specifically for veterans, where his issues may be more easily understood.
  • Holistic treatment centers. At a facility that specializes in holistic treatment, the usual forms of therapy may be supplemented by nutritional counseling, training in yoga, meditation or martial arts, massage therapy and other holistic approaches.
  • Facilities that treat Dual Diagnosis cases. Alcoholism, drug addiction, depression, anxiety disorders and other co-occurring conditions can usually be best treated in a facility that specializes in Dual Diagnoses. Substance abuse is a common affliction among those who have been traumatized. Depending on the severity and duration of the addiction, detox might be necessary. This should be done in a residential facility under medical supervision. Depression and panic attacks might also benefit from medication in addition to counseling.
