Addiction and trauma disorders are closely linked, as many individuals turn to alcohol or other drugs to escape the pain of traumatic experiences.
At Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres, we 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.
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.

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.
