Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that can develop in response to a tragic occurrence such as: loss of a loved one, rape, accident, a violent attack, a natural disaster, child abuse, spouse abuse, etc. Many individuals who have experienced psychological trauma turn to various substances to numb their senses to disconnect from their troubling memories. Untreated PTSD is not likely to disappear and can contribute to chronic pain and depression which undermines the best addiction treatment efforts. In fact, untreated trauma is often one of the main causes of relapse.
At Florida Center for Recovery (FCR), we know the importance of resolving trauma-related issues in any successful recovery, and for that reason, we have sought the expertise of one of the nation’s best trauma therapist, Dr. Jon Connelly, founder and developer of Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT).
RRT helps clients to permanently overcome the negative effects of trauma by eliminating the ongoing psychological suffering that stems from disturbing or painful past experiences. Treatment is painless, does not involve re-experiencing of the traumatizing event(s) and often takes as few as 1 to 3 sessions. Rapid Resolution Therapy delivered exclusively by Dr. Jon Connelly at our facility is part of FCR’s addiction treatment program which is geared towards comprehensive healing for clients.
If you or a loved one needs help with recovery from a traumatic experience that contributed to an ongoing substance dependence problem, Florida Center for Recovery can help. Call us at 800-851-3291 for information and admissions.
