Learn About Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Treatment

Discover treatment for co-occurring posttraumatic stress disorder at Sierra by the Sea in Newport Beach, CA

Posttraumatic stress disorder, also known as PTSD, is a condition that results from being exposed to or being involved in a traumatic event. An individual may develop PTSD if they are involved in a situation where their life is at risk, they experience violence, or they witness death. PTSD may also impact someone who is deeply affected by sudden news of injury or death to a loved one, such as in an accident or natural disaster.

PTSD may cause dissociative symptoms that can make people feel unaware of their surroundings, while the depersonalization associated with PTSD can make an individual feel disconnected from their own body and thoughts. These symptoms may also be accompanied by visual or auditory hallucinations.

These symptoms, among others, can cause many individuals with PTSD to have difficulty sleeping, experience varying mood changes, and engage in impulsive or reckless behaviors. Many individuals who are struggling with PTSD may turn to substances to cope with their symptoms. This can cause some people to develop addictions along with the PTSD symptoms they are struggling with.

Why Consider Treatment at Sierra by the Sea

Why seek treatment for co-occurring posttraumatic stress disorder at Sierra by the Sea in Newport Beach, CA

Without treatment, you are at an increased risk of experiencing many of the negative outcomes that co-occurring PTSD and addiction may have on your life. These effects are often harmful and much more deeply rooted than most individuals expect. Not only can these outcomes impact you, but they can also impact your family members, friends, and other loved ones.

You may be experiencing difficulty falling or staying asleep. You may find yourself unable to control feelings of anger, irritability, and aggression toward seemingly minor annoyances throughout your day. You may find it more and more trying to spend time with loved ones or participate in the activities you once enjoyed. It’s possible that you find yourself wondering when, if ever, you will feel peace and relaxation again.

This may be what most days look like if you do not receive treatment for co-occurring PTSD. Co-occurring PTSD has both small- and large-scale impacts on a person’s life, especially if it is accompanied by addiction. These changes may range from difficulty focusing on daily tasks to disciplinary action at work or school to legal troubles. These outcomes have the ability to negatively impact most things you do on a daily basis and may cause significant pain and emotional distress.
