PTSD Therapy in Laguna, California
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is the brain’s naturally occurring response to a severely traumatic event. These events can include experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening situation such as a car accident, medical emergency or wartime violence.
People with PTSD are plagued by disrupted sleep or disturbing dreams, high levels of anxiety and stress, and lowered resiliency towards the unavoidable stressors in life. They are also much more likely to develop an addiction as they attempt to self-medicate with mind-altering substances. By treating the underlying trauma of PTSD, we can also help treat addictive behaviors.
