PTSD: What is it?
Healing from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
If you or a loved one is in the midst of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), finding the right support for recovery and healing can be life-changing.
Healing from PTSD isn’t an overnight process. It’s a journey that requires patience, collaboration, support, and the appropriate combination of integrated treatments. At Hope In Health, our expert team brings the highest quality of clinical care to our clients’ PTSD recovery journeys, building personalised treatment plans that help you to achieve long-term healing.
Understanding PTSD and Its Impact on Your Life
PTSD is a mental health disorder that can result for individuals who’ve either been a part of or witnessed a traumatic event, often taking the form of combat exposure during active duty, sexual assault, physical assault, natural disasters, the death of a close family member or other life-threatening events.
PTSD can present itself differently from person to person, but may carry symptoms of problems with intrusive thoughts, avoidance of key triggers, and a heightened experience of anxiety and fear due to the PTSD itself.
Symptoms of PTSD
As with the experience of PTSD itself, its symptoms can vary from person to person. They may include:
- Nightmares or problems sleeping
- A sense of hypervigilance and alertness
- Challenges concentrating or problems with long-term memory
- Negative changes in moods and emotions, including depression, anxiety or irritability
- Physical symptoms, including headaches, digestive issues or fatigue
- Problems with relationships and intimacy
- Difficulty at work or at school
- Substance abuse or addiction arising from substance use as a coping method
Effective Treatment Options for PTSD
Effective treatment for PTSD requires appropriate treatment for the root cause of the disorder, not just treatment for its symptoms.
Our team of experienced professionals draw on a range of evidence-based treatments to help each of our clients explore the root cause of their PTSD, overcome their symptoms and reclaim their capacities. The tools we build with you during your in-person experience are tools that can be used for the long-term, setting the foundation for ongoing recovery and rehabilitation in the midst of your everyday environment.
Finding the Right PTSD Treatment for You
At Hope In Health, we recognise that everyone’s experience with PTSD therapy needs to be unique. That’s why our integrated, holistic treatments are coordinated within a unique program that’s shaped in direct collaboration with you.
You won’t receive a one-size-fits-all approach to care here – no matter the cause or symptoms of your PTSD, our wealth of evidence-based treatments can pave the way to a brighter, more sustainable future.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient PTSD Treatment
