PTSD is one of the many mental health conditions the Berman Center can assist with at our outpatient mental health center in Atlanta. If you or a loved one are looking for a PTSD treatment center, not only can we provide personalized care, but we also focus on trauma using evidence-based techniques and a soul-to-soul connection.

Understanding Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

After experiencing a traumatic, challenging, or shocking event, a person may develop PTSD, sometimes unknowingly and possibly even months after the event. Those with ongoing issues regarding the event may be assessed by a healthcare provider and then diagnosed with this condition. 

Anyone can be at risk for PTSD, and its progression can unfortunately affect activities of daily living. It may even cause a fight-or-flight response during times that are not normally considered threatening or dangerous. 

While factors such as extreme stress, lack of emotional support, or family history can contribute to the development of PTSD, it is usually the combination of these factors before, during, and after the traumatic event that increases the risk. 

Everyone’s experience of PTSD is unique, and symptoms in response to the trauma can last for months if left untreated. The condition can ultimately affect interactions with others, hindering thinking processes and negatively affecting mood. 

A PTSD treatment center such as the Berman Center can provide a personalized approach to a client’s specific needs. Here at the Berman Center, you will find effective and customizable care that fosters connections and prioritizes family therapy as well. Our team of healthcare professionals prioritize guiding clients to long-term success.

Treatment for PTSD is Essential

Treatment for PTSD must be provided by a healthcare professional who specializes in this condition. A mental health therapist with the right expertise can deliver treatment designed for each individual’s specific needs. 

Recovery has many paths, but the final destination is one everyone deserves: to live free of trauma and distress while overcoming any challenges that were once difficult to deal with. 

If you or a loved one find yourself consistently feeling detached or disconnected from reality, give yourself a chance to return to who you once were by seeking treatment with a licensed therapist.
