At Intensive Trauma Therapy (ITT) trauma survivors
can make considerable gains in reducing and/or eliminating
intrusive, avoidant and arousal symptoms without the
use of medications in a relatively brief time. They
can learn to manage troubling auditory hallucinations
and suicidal urges that come from trauma.
Many trauma survivors suffer in silence, believing
that their severe depression symptoms, suicidal urges,
depersonalization, derealization, and auditory hallucinations
mean that they are “crazy.” In fact, these symptoms
as well as those of panic attacks, hypervigilance,
social phobia, self-mutilation, eating problems, recurring
nightmares, flashbacks, and substance abuse are often
the result of trauma. At ITT we treat all these symptoms
as we process the traumatic events.
Thank you to everyone who came out and made ITT’s Open House a huge success. If you were not able to make the Open House but would like to know more about ITT, call Nancy: (304) 291-2912.
