WHY IS SABINO RECOVERY’S PTSD PROGRAM RIGHT FOR YOU?
You did not choose to have PTSD, and you cannot choose not to have it. PTSD causes lasting changes in the areas of the brain responsible for regulating emotion, thought, and memory. When your brain is hijacked in this way, regaining control is difficult, no matter how long ago the traumatic event occurred.
Yet, your brain is resilient and so are you. The treatment program at Sabino Recovery is designed to take advantage of neuroplasticity – your brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections in order to adapt and adjust to new situations, experiences, and environments. Your resilience is a powerful force.
Treatment plans are developed around the very specific needs of each resident. There are no “treatment tracts,” which means each your treatment plan is developed after you arrive. In addition, progress is closely monitored and the multi-disciplinary team makes real-time adjustments based on your progress and your needs.
The highly experienced clinical and medical staff prescribes a custom blend of medical, psychological and integrative therapies to most effectively treat you as a whole person and core issues of trauma that are driving the PTSD symptoms. There is equal emphasis on psychotherapy, including equine therapy, somatic experience, EMDR, and neuro-psychodrama, as well as medical treatment and integrative therapies, which include adventure therapies, acupuncture, yoga and massage. Since trauma “lives” in the body, all of these modalities beyond traditional talk therapy is vital to true recovery.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF PTSD?
While each person experiences the symptoms of PTSD in their own way, symptoms are typically of three main types:
- Re-experiencing the trauma through intrusive distressing recollections of the event, flashbacks, and nightmares.
- Emotional numbness and avoidance of places, people, and activities that are reminders of the trauma.
- Increased arousal that causes insomnia, trouble concentrating, and increased irritation and anger.
Those with PTSD may also experience:
- Drug and alcohol abuse and addiction.
- Depression and anxiety.
- Feelings of hopelessness, shame, or despair.
- Physical symptoms or chronic pain.
- Employment problems.
- Relationship problems and intimacy issues.
