Addiction and trauma disorders are closely linked, as many individuals turn to alcohol or other drugs to escape the pain of traumatic experiences. Our addiction rehab centres provide an effective treatment program to address the co-occurring conditions in a comprehensive manner.

PTSD Definitions and Symptoms

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an incapacitating mental health condition prompted by a traumatizing experience – either through experiencing it first hand or by witnessing it second hand.

Individuals who suffer from PTSD experience symptoms such as flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, in addition to uncontrollable, sometimes irrational thoughts about the event that took place. After a severely traumatic event, people will often find themselves having difficulty coping with normal everyday life. However, PTSD sufferers will usually feel this for a longer period of time, to the point that it will have a severely negative effect on their lives.

PTSD Treatment

Our dedicated team of health care professionals understands that getting effective treatment for your PTSD is your top priority.

We know you need help, and we’re here to provide the latest, most effective psychotherapy techniques in a state-of-the-art facility, helping you come to terms with your condition through cognitive behavioural therapy and other relevant techniques. We can help you get back on track and gain control over your symptoms, helping you move on from the traumatic event that has been plaguing you.

Our compassionate, comprehensive approach treats the whole person, and our holistic residential rehab facility lets you reconnect with nature while we help you work on your issues. In treating veterans and in other challenging cases, Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres is uniquely qualified and experienced in helping those struggling with PTSD.

Residential Treatment

Trafalgar provides residential treatment for PTSD and co-occurring addiction disorders. We have a highly trained and experienced team of professionals ready to provide customized therapeutic addiction treatment for the abuse of substances and mental health disorders.

Outpatient Treatment for PTSD

For those unable to attend residential treatment, we offer intensive outpatient treatment for PTSD. Our outpatient programs are tailored to the client’s schedule and needs and enable them to go home at night.​

Virtual Addiction Rehab for PTSD

We also provide personalized treatment virtually on a secure, online platform that you can access in the comfort of your home.​

Trauma and Addiction Aftercare

As part of all Trafalgar’s trauma and addiction treatment programs, we offer aftercare services to make sure that upon graduation of the client, any kind of relapse will be prevented through our aftercare, ContinUCare and Continuation of Care.

Some may think that if they have made it through a trauma and addiction treatment program, then their problems are over. Completing a trauma and addiction treatment program is a great accomplishment, but it is only the beginning of the recovery journey.

Aftercare is especially important during the first few years of recovery.

How Do We Treat PTSD?

Treatment for PTSD should involve evidence-based methods that can be tailored to your needs.

💡 Learn the Difference Between
Therapist vs. Addiction Counsellor

What distinguishes their roles is the difference in education, training, experience and professional accountability. – A therapist enables you to tackle deep trauma and unresolved issues that fuel your addiction. – A counsellor helps you handle emotional distress during your recovery process with healthy habits on a daily/weekly basis.

What Are Our Alumni Saying?


I came to Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres feeling ashamed, defeated and tired of being me.
I am leaving Trafalgar with the passion I once had for everything life has to offer and most importantly, the tools to keep me grounded.

K. H.

Through my addiction, I had lost myself. I had no self-esteem, many anger issues, a lot of hurt and chaos in my life. Trafalgar helped me find myself, believe in myself and centre my life. I owe them my life.

Spouse of Mike G.

Mike is doing great! Your program certainly is fantastic! it seems I have the old Mike back that I married almost 35 years ago…

A. C.

This being my third rehab in less than a year, I found the therapy I received one-on-one much better here. The staff were all terrific and I would definitely recommend Trafalgar to others.

J. C.

Trafalgar has been an experience unlike any other. The compassion and willingness of the staff is unparalleled. I have never felt so safe and secure when faced with my personal struggles. Ones which were so overwhelming that I had almost given up. The program works!

T. A.

Trafalgar saved my life! The staff were always on point with information and compassion. I highly recommend this place to anyone with a substance addiction or process addiction.


Trafalgar is a great place to get your life back. The location, staff and therapists make you feel at home. There is a real sense of community and the therapists give you the tools to get back on track.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the difference between Residential, Outpatient and Virtual PTSD Treatment Programs?


    Each of our treatment centres adhere to our guiding principles providing a comprehensive treatment protocol. Core to all programming at Trafalgar is our focus on treating the underlying mental health issues fuelling the addiction.

    At our Inpatient Centre in Erin, Ontario, we offer 42-day intensive programs, with extensions available. The client-centred, intensive, evidence-based program treats clients’ addictions in conjunction with mental health issues.

    At our Addiction Counselling Centre in Toronto, Ontario, we provide treatment for addiction and concurrent mental health disorders, based on a client’s needs, schedule and budget.

    Through our secure, end-to-end encrypted platform, you can receive virtual addiction treatment in the comfort of your home, at your own pace.

  • How long are concurrent disorders programs?


    Our inpatient program is a minimum of 30 days. An extension is possible if need be (such as 45, 60 or 90 days). These extensions will be assessed by our clinical team and will be discussed with you.

    At our Outpatient Clinic we offer 4-week, structured, intensive programs. If the 4-week program does not fit with your schedule or budget, we will tailor a program specific to you.

    Our Online Rehab program is also structured as 4-week long. However, you can always complete it at your own pace.

  • Is the treatment for PTSD covered by OHIP?


    No, we are a private facility and therefore our programs are fee-for-service. However, select insurance companies do recognize treatment at Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres and provide coverage. Please contact us for details.

  • Does Private Insurance cover the cost of the treatment program?


    Most insurance companies do recognize treatment with us and provide coverage. However, insurance coverage is dependent on the company you deal with and your individual plan. Rest assured we will support you in providing your insurance company with the information required to submit a claim. Please contact us for details.
