      What is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?

      Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a complex mental health condition that can affect individuals who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event.

      Trauma can take many forms, from combat experiences and natural disasters to accidents, assaults, or other life-altering events. While not everyone exposed to trauma will develop PTSD, certain factors can increase the risk. These include the severity of the trauma, the individual's personal resilience, and their support system. For some, the impact of these events lingers long after the immediate danger has passed.

      Common traumatic events that can lead to PTSD include:

      • Military Combat
      • Physical or Sexual Assault
      • Natural Disasters
      • Accidents
      • Childhood Trauma
      • Loss of a loved one

      What are signs of PTSD?

      Recognizing the signs and symptoms of PTSD is crucial for seeking timely treatment. While symptoms can vary from person to person, common signs of PTSD include:

      • Flashbacks: Vivid and distressing memories of the traumatic event that feel as if they are happening again.
      • Nightmares: Recurring and distressing dreams related to trauma.
      • Avoidance: Avoiding situations, places, or people that trigger memories of the trauma.
      • Negative Changes in Mood: Persistent feelings of guilt, shame, or fear, as well as a diminished interest in previously enjoyed activities.
      • Hyperarousal: Feeling constantly on edge, experiencing irritability, anger, or difficulty sleeping.
      • Intrusive Thoughts: Intrusive, distressing thoughts and images related to the trauma.

      At Midwest Wellness Center Associates, we are committed to providing top-notch care for individuals dealing with PTSD. Our team of experienced mental health professionals is dedicated to helping you regain control of your life and find relief from the distressing symptoms of PTSD.

      Psychotherapy for PTSD

      Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, is often a cornerstone of PTSD treatment. Our compassionate therapists employ evidence-based techniques to help you process traumatic memories, develop healthy coping strategies, and regain a sense of control. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is just one of the effective therapeutic approaches we offer.

      Medication Management

      In some cases, medication may be a beneficial part of your treatment plan. Our leading psychiatrists in Chicago and Westmont are skilled in prescribing medications that can help alleviate symptoms of PTSD. These medications can assist in rebalancing the brain chemistry disrupted by trauma, making it easier for you to engage in therapy and work toward recovery.
