What is PTSD?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder brought on by intense and threatening events in your life. Many people who have lived through situations like abuse or warfare develop chronic problems like insomnia, flashbacks, or low self-esteem. All of these symptoms of PTSD are normal, and healthcare professionals know how to treat them effectively. However, many returning veterans and others with PTSD turn to drugs in order to alleviate the pain of their symptoms. Drinking, using opiates, and other psychoactive drugs will help mask or deaden the effects of these problems in the short term but can lead to long-term dependence or addiction without appropriate mental health treatment.

For those who suffer from this mental disorder, the raw and often visceral memories associated with past trauma severely affect their daily lives. Like all mental illnesses, PTSD majorly impacts the lives of sufferers, their families, and others they love. In the same way that substance abuse rewires your brain, PTSD creates a disorder in your mind that will require long-term treatment solutions. Veterans and other individuals living with PTSD need to restore their self-esteem and learn new evidence-based skills to improve their symptoms.

To manage the symptoms of this debilitating condition and any substance abuse issues, people need to seek the help and support found at a PTSD and substance abuse treatment center. The best facilities offer programs and treatment plans that will address both PTSD and addiction at the same time. Next Wind Recovery runs a dual diagnosis treatment program for co-occurring conditions that will simultaneously help you detox and face your PTSD.

What Are the Signs of PTSD?

As alluded to in the previous section, people with PTSD relive traumatic events in their lives to the point where they interfere with essential daily functions. Some common signs associated with PTSD include difficulty sleeping and feeling detached in everyday life. In general, people experiencing PTSD will experience three major symptoms:

  • Re-experiencing symptoms—the reliving of the traumatic event or events in the form of flashbacks and recurring nightmares.
  • Avoidance—people affected with PTSD will avoid the people, places, and things connected to the traumatic event. 
  • Arousal symptoms—the constant feeling of unease and always being on alert. People with PTSD will experience a “flight or fight” response if there are things in the environment they perceive as threatening.

Long associated with military veterans experiencing the horrors of combat, PTSD is a condition that can affect young and old and from any background. The following are common traumatic events that can lead to the development of PTSD:

  • Major life-threatening accidents
  • Natural disasters such as earthquakes, tornados, and hurricanes
  • Child abuse, including psychological, physical, and sexual abuse
  • Sexual assault or prolonged and repeated sexual abuse
  • Physical assault
  • Death of a loved one

Paying for Treatment

We Work With Most Major Insurance

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Treatment

Both individual and group therapy are very effective treatments for PTSD. Professional therapists work with you to identify your fear and anxiety sources to change negative thought patterns. Some types of talk therapy that can be helpful include:

Cognitive-behavioral therapy

Dialectical behavior therapy

EMDR therapy

Motivational interviewing

These tools are used to help you process your trauma and pinpoint exactly where your fears come from. You’ll learn how they trigger negative thought patterns, including ones that lead to substance addiction.

In order to be free of these emotions and move forward with your life, you need the help of caring professionals. You may also be prescribed medications that work specifically to lessen negative thoughts and nightmares.

Can PTSD Cause Addiction?

While qualified mental health treatment programs are available to those with PTSD, many will be hesitant to seek treatment or refuse treatment altogether. This is due to the ongoing stigma surrounding mental health in general. Many struggling with PTSD fear being seen as weak for seeking professional help. As a result, they will turn to substances to cope with their condition.

Without professional mental health treatment, people will use substances as their primary coping tool. Their use will spiral towards dependence and then full-blown addiction. If someone with PTSD develops an alcohol addiction, they develop what is known as dual diagnosis. Dual diagnosis is very difficult to treat, and those with this condition will need to seek intensive treatment that is found in addiction and PTSD treatment centers in New Jersey.
