National PTSD Awareness Month

After a traumatic event, most people have painful memories. For many people the effects of the event fade over time, but for others, the memories, thoughts, and feelings don’t go away-even months or years after the event is over. This phenomenon is called PTSD or post-traumatic stress disorder and it doesn’t just affect veterans of war, it can manifest in anyone who has experienced trauma.

Psychologists have attributed a traumatic event to the reason people self-medicate and ultimately becoming addicted or alcoholic. Mental health experts are not sure why some people develop PTSD and others do not. If stress reactions do not improve over time they disrupt everyday life.

In 2014, the Senate designated the month of June for National PTSD Awareness (S. Res.481). Raising awareness can help those who may be suffering from this condition but unaware that it is a recognized disorder and treatable.

At Tranquil Shores our counselors are highly trained to deal with dual-diagnosis. We don’t just treat the client for their substance abuse issues, we go deeper to find the underlying issues that contribute to addiction and alcoholism. If you or a loved one is suffering from severe anxiety and depression as well as abusing substances, the staff at Tranquil Shores is equipped to help you identify your mental health issues and to treat PTSD.
