Ambrosia Treatment Center for PTSD

Post-traumatic stress disorder is an anxiety disorder that typically develops as the result of having experienced one or more traumatic events. PTSD can be triggered by several events that a person experiences or witnesses. Common events that contribute to the development of PTSD include:

  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse and assault
  • Death of a loved one
  • Childhood abuse or neglect
  • Being involved in an accident
  • Military service events
  • Natural disasters like tornadoes, hurricanes, and floods
  • Long-term illness
  • Community violence

PTSD can be acute, chronic, or complex. Acute PTSD occurs over a short span of time. Symptoms typically last no longer than four weeks. Chronic PTSD is defined by the development of symptoms that last for longer periods of time. Those who experience complex PTSD are usually children or adolescents who are currently experiencing traumatic events in their lives or who grew up dealing with them. A qualified PTSD inpatient treatment program can treat all three kinds of PTSD.
