The root cause of post-traumatic stress disorder, also referred to as PTSD, is a traumatic event. At Alive Recovery, we understand that individuals suffering from PTSD have an anxiety disorder caused by a frightening and distressing event.
PTSD can be triggered by a life threatening event which created injury or a reaction to the event which resulted in intense fear and helplessness.
We have partnered with experts in the mental health field who can help patients suffering from PTSD.
Those with PTSD generally are faced with one or more of the following serious symptoms:
- Heightened anxiety
- Anger outbursts
- Lack of concentration
- Being “on guard”
In essence, the traumatic event controls an individual’s thoughts and behaviors. If someone has been faced with a traumatic ordeal and feelings of fear, anxiety and disconnect persist, Alive Recovery is there to help.
