Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome isn’t something you can just get over. And it’s hard, because you’re hurting so badly but people can’t see it. So, they expect you to snap your fingers and move on. Like it’s a choice. Like you would choose to go through life this way.
At Emergo, we recognize PTSD symptoms for what they are: signs that your brain has experienced trauma, and is imbalanced. At Emergo, we know you can move on and reclaim a life filled with happy moments—but to get there, you need help that’s integrative, effective and focuses first on the one area so many therapies ignore: the brain.
We have a saying: To overcome pain, you wouldn’t talk to your heart disease, would you? Well, what about an imbalanced, dysfunctional brain?
Instead of talk therapy or drug therapy, as part of Emergo’s PTSD treatment, we employ a multi-dimensional, evidence-based approach centred around nurturing the brain (neuroplasticity), the body and the unique person in front of us. We’re also uniquely capable of treating both PTSD and issues such as substance abuseor depression, which, for many sufferers, are linked.
When people suffering from PTSD don’t get effective help, it can set off cascading negative and serious consequences. To overcome debilitating feelings of anxiety and depression that result, many PTSD sufferers turn to alcohol and drugs to self-medicate and make traumatic memories go away. Often, relationships suffer, and failure at school and work is likely. Those suffering from extreme cases of PTSD may become suicidal.
Our residential PTSD treatment and wellness program helps save families because it’s not like other recovery programs. From focusing on nurturing the brain and involving the family to tailored programming and paleo-organic meals, we leave nothing to chance and everything to science.
