The stress and rigors of daily life may affect a person’s general well being every once in a while. However, certain distressing events may cause people to endure severe trauma, scarring them emotionally and mentally for life.

Trauma may occur more commonly than we think, with 6 out of every ten men and 5 in every ten women suffering from at least one traumatic incident in their lives. Natural disasters, physical abuse, loss of a loved one, and acts of war and violence often trigger these and develop worse conditions, such as posttraumatic stress disorders.

Transcend Recovery Community helps address these issues by providing supplemental recovery services specifically for patients with mental trauma.

What Is Trauma Therapy?

Trauma therapy is a type of recovery that identifies and examines how a traumatic experience impacts a patient's developmental, behavioral, social, physical, and spiritual well-being. It is crucial in providing adequate mental wellness support to individuals experiencing trauma and a necessary step for them to begin recovery.

Understanding the connection between the individual's traumatic experience and their emotional and behavioral responses is at the heart of this therapy form.

Another aim of trauma therapy is to better equip the person with skills and techniques to help them better understand, respond to, and process feelings and memories associated with traumatic events, with the ultimate goal of helping the patient to create a healthier and more adaptive context for the incident that occurred in their life.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration further elaborates trauma therapy's objectives with these four main points.

Trauma-focused programs within a system, company, or organization should:

Recognize the wide-ranging effects of trauma and the various pathways to recovery;
Identify the signs and symptoms of trauma in clients, families, employees, and other participants;
Address the issues at hand by implementing trauma awareness into strategies, procedures, and practices; and
Aim to prevent re-traumatization as far as possible.

Does Transcend Recovery Community Offer Trauma Treatment?

Transcend Recovery Community offers extended support for individuals suffering trauma through spiritual guidance and sober living arrangements. It works closely with its partner company, The Heights Treatment, a treatment specialist with aftercare programs for trauma-suffering patients, depending on their need or preference.

After Care Program

Its partner company for inpatient rehabilitation treatment, The Heights Treatment, introduces two programs that may benefit each patient for their longer-term rehabilitation. First, there is a partial hospitalization program (PHP), which is a structured outpatient recovery program regularly scheduled for patients. It is developed for clients who have finished a residential treatment program. On the other hand, the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) requires fewer hours but will tackle recurring mental health issues, such as addiction, through various therapies.

Sober Living

Living in sober residences provides a haven for people dealing with mental health issues, such as trauma, to better their lives and proceed on their path to rehabilitation. Individuals who have accomplished a trauma therapy program are more likely to continue to live in a sober living home.

What Does Trauma Therapy And Healing Involve?

o promote effective rehabilitation and healing with someone suffering from their trauma, trauma therapy must address these five key points.

Learning About The Trauma

Trauma-focused therapy should provide space for individuals to learn about normal responses to trauma. It allows people to digest why specific thoughts and behaviors occur and shed light on their experiences.

Recognizing The Triggers

Trauma-focused therapy should help the patient identify, recognize, analyze, and describe trauma-related memories and feelings. Individuals can begin to realize what experiences or feelings trigger them to adapt and refine their responses over time.

Developing Healthy Coping Mechanisms

Trauma-focused counseling sessions aim to help patients discover and strengthen coping mechanisms to better respond to traumatic memories and feelings by introducing anxiety management and calming techniques. Developing these skills in response to trauma encourages adaptability from their distressing experience.

Re-Establishing Safety In An Individual

With exercises and discussions that target their unique experiences, trauma-focused therapy helps patients reintegrate internal and external safety senses.

Practicing Trauma Processing Or Integration

Trauma counseling can help patients regain power and control over their past experiences by sensitively assisting them in re-telling their stories. With time, the patient can "process" or organize these traumatic encounters through their daily lives, making sense of these events and how they relate to their perception of themselves and their surroundings.

What Are The Three Stages Of Trauma Recovery?

Recovering from severe trauma is something that can't be done overnight. However, with a mental health professional's help and ample support from loved ones, individuals can once again reclaim the normalcy in their lives. Complete rehabilitation entails three phases for patients to fully recover.

1st Phase: Safety and Stability

Your healthcare provider will communicate with you about your long-term needs after you've been cleared. Following treatment, their trauma specialist may prescribe some medication and equipment. It is critical to adhere to their advice.

The patient must collaborate closely with their counselor to navigate the first phase of recovery as they deal with emotion management, re-stabilize themselves when confronted with triggers, and avoid potential environmental stressors.

Transcend’s sister company, The Heights Company, can provide further treatment and support through its relapse prevention services to keep patients from turning to drugs or alcohol.

2nd Phase: Remembering and Grieving

When a patient has regained a sense of safety and stability after the traumatic incident, their specialist will help them process their pain and realize what they've lost. However, it does not imply reliving the event but exploring and incorporating it in a safe setting.

3rd Phase: Restoring Relationships

The patient will reach and celebrate emotional resolution with a mental health counselor's assistance, helping them come to terms with and move on from their trauma. Depending on the patient's capability, specialists can recommend the patient to engage in group reintegration activities with a rehabilitation practitioner's assistance to acclimate to daily life, and allow them to eventually reconnect with their loved ones.

What Are The Success Rates Of Trauma Therapy?

According to studies, between 77% and 100% of patients who undergo routine, personalized trauma therapy sessions will decrease their symptoms. It is consistent with research on trauma patients who received medicine to relieve their symptoms.

If you or a loved one is experiencing trauma-related problems, treatment must be done right away as mental and psychological damages rarely resolve on their own.

However, with time and the guidance of a compassionate and professional therapist, trauma-related symptoms may be permanently alleviated.

Transcend's vast array of recovery services encourage mental health wellness and growth on top of trauma therapy. These help people recovering from trauma in coping easier by fostering spiritual growth and self-affirmation to these individuals. Life skills workshops, group therapy, and counseling promote confidence and trust in themselves that they once lost through their mental suffering.

How Does Transcend Recovery Community Help Address Trauma?

Transcend Recovery Community works closely with its sister company, The Heights Treatment, in addressing trauma. The Heights Treatment’s programs dealing with trauma recovery and therapy are intricately designed by a team of mental health and trauma experts.

These programs comprise scientifically-backed and industry-approved practices that address a particular problem that may arise due to their trauma.

Careful consideration and planning have been done with each custom approach for varying cases, as trauma may differ for each person. A one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t always apply to every patient and may even aggravate conditions that would lead to supplemental therapy, such as anxiety disorder treatment.

These therapies may include:

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

DBT is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy that attempts to change and process negative thinking patterns and encourages positive behavioral changes.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR therapy may last up to 90 minutes that incorporates specific eye movement exercises while recalling trauma. It believes that remembering distressing events becomes less emotionally upsetting when your focus is shifted. It is often used to relieve psychological stress.

Art therapy

Art therapy is an alternative therapeutic method that promotes healing and mental wellness through creative pursuits and expression.

Equine Therapy

Equine therapy is a form of experiential rehabilitation that involves the bond between people and horses to facilitate physical or emotional rehabilitation.

Is There Trauma-Informed Care Near Me?

Fortunately, many trauma-informed care centers are readily available for people who wish to inquire or seek treatment regarding their condition. Major cities such as Houston, Los Angeles, and New York ensure that ample trauma therapy facilities are within reach for a wider population.

While it is not exclusively a treatment center, Transcend Recovery Community provides adequate support and spiritual recovery to people diagnosed with trauma while partnering with its affiliate company for patient treatment and care, The Heights Treatment. With this strong partnership, patients get a holistic approach to their mental rehabilitation.
