Following a trauma, it’s easy to lose faith and feel abandoned by God. Individuals with PTSD can become so preoccupied with events in the past that it can be hard to imagine a future. Sometimes recovery requires something more.
At Brookhaven Hospital’s RENEWAL: Christian Treatment and Recovery program, we understand that getting help for post-traumatic stress disorder can sometimes feel impossible. There are many programs that can treat your PTSD, but they may fail to acknowledge your deeper, spiritual needs. Along with offering you advanced PTSD treatment, RENEWAL incorporates your faith into your recovery process.
It’s common to experience feelings of anxiety following the loss of a loved one or a traumatic event. Sometimes in the aftermath of an overwhelming, tragic or terrifying event, you can experience anxiety symptoms that are so severe that they disrupt your daily routine.
Post-traumatic stress disorder can be triggered by a range of events including exposure to rape, mugging, terrorism, domestic violence or psychological abuse. Though PTSD is common among military and law enforcement personnel, it can affect people in all walks of life.
After a traumatic event it’s easy to feel like you’ve been abandoned by God. But this isn’t the case. By strengthening your relationship with God, and getting proper psychological help you can gain the strength to move forward with your life.
If you or a loved one is experiencing any of these symptoms following a traumatic event contact Brookhaven Hospital for help:
- Repeated flashbacks or nightmares of the traumatic event
- Emotional numbness
- Being easily startled
- Feeling hyper-aware of surroundings
- Poor sleeping patterns
- Avoidance of people, places or events that are similar to the traumatic event
About the RENEWAL program
Brookhaven’s RENEWAL program provides an integrated approach for individuals seeking treatment for PTSD as well as people with a “dual diagnosis” based on meeting the spiritual and psychological needs of the person within a comprehensive, results-oriented treatment program.
The Christian post-traumatic stress disorder treatment program begins with a spiritual assessment which allows us to help you identify the issues which are barriers to your satisfying relationship with God and enable you to incorporate a spiritual dimension into the recovery process and your life after Brookhaven.
