Everyone experiences overwhelming events in their lives. Accidents, grief, and high-stress moments are inevitable. But what do you do when your memories are haunting you so much that they’re interfering with your life? 

No one wants to relive traumatic events, but that is the reality for about 6% of Americans who will experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) at some point in their lives. Flashbacks, nightmares, avoiding anything that reminds them of the experience, and more. All of the painful symptoms that come with PTSD can make the condition feel terrifying and isolating.

The good news is, it’s possible to heal. Most people recover from PTSD after treatment, and Wolf Creek Recovery Center is here to help by offering treatment for PTSD and any co-occurring conditions. If you’re seeking veteran PTSD treatment, we’re here for you. Any frightening experience that is still causing significant distress in your life is worth seeking treatment for.

What We Treat: What Is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a condition that develops after someone experiences a traumatic event. This event can be anything that greatly endangers your life, safety, or well-being.

We know that sometimes, the pain of trauma is so great that people will turn to substance use as a way to cope. Because of that, we treat trauma and any substance use disorders and mental health conditions that come alongside it. We’re serious about treating the root cause of what people need care for and fostering comprehensive healing.


PTSD Treatment for Veterans

Veterans dedicate themselves to serving our country, and face unique challenges that many people don’t understand. 

At Wolf Creek Recovery, we do understand. Most people don’t know what war and military combat feels like, and what those things can do to your well-being. We offer customized treatment that will address your individual needs – not just the standard, one-size-fits-all therapy options. 

No one has experienced exactly what you have, and we believe your time with us should reflect that. What you’ve lived through – the good and the bad – matters to us, and we approach every aspect of treatment with that in mind.

How Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Is Treated at Wolf Creek Recovery Center

We offer multiple programs and can help you decide what’s best for you based on your individual experiences. They include:

  • Inpatient treatment, where individuals stay overnight with access to 24/7 care
  • Partial hospitalization, where you’ll visit our facility multiple times a week during the daytime, but stay at home overnight
  • Intensive outpatient treatment, which includes therapy similar to the partial hospitalization program, but with less time spent with us
  • General outpatient treatment, consisting of a few hours with us per week

People in treatment at Wolf Creek Recovery participate in many therapy options, including individual, group, and outdoor therapy. 

A major component of our PTSD treatment is eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR focuses on simple movements, including the movement of your eyes, and uses them to help you healthily process traumatic memories.


Causes of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: The Shocking and Scary

PTSD is caused by a scary, shocking, or dangerous event. Common sources of PTSD are physical or sexual abuse, natural disasters, serious accidents, sudden and/or violent death in your life, life-threatening illness, or war. This list is not comprehensive, and many different events can cause PTSD.
