PTSD Treatment in Florida

Fort Myers Mental Health Treatment Center

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a complex illness that occurs when someone experiences or witnesses a traumatic event. Symptoms can last a lifetime, especially if untreated. According to the VA, about 7% of military personnel experience PTSD. That number has more than doubled since the Korea conflict. At the same time, civilians are not far behind at 5% of adults, which is why getting help for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is imperative. Do you think you may have PTSD? Call us today at 239.266.2141 for a confidential assessment.

What is PTSD?

A traumatic experience or event can leave an imprint on someone’s mind for years. There is no discrimination for who can develop PTSD. Different kinds of trauma can affect people of all ages and genders. That being said, military veterans do experience PTSD more than civilians.

Five Forms of PTSD

Understand the Signs of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Normal Stress Response

This occurs before PTSD develops. Prompted by excessive tension levels, normal stress response is manageable with a healthy circle of support, and those suffering should see improvements in a few weeks

Acute Stress Disorder

This disorder is triggered by life-threatening events or events that the sufferer perceived as life-threatening or traumatic. Acute stress disorder is not the same as PTSD but can develop into PTSD if left untreated.

Uncomplicated PTSD

This disorder can be attributed to one core traumatic experience. While the diagnosis may be straightforward, sufferers may experience a myriad of symptoms, including flashbacks, nightmares, and more.

Complex PTSD

This disorder is triggered by repeated exposure to violence and trauma. For this reason, it is most evident in soldiers and victims of domestic violence. It is not uncommon for sufferers of complex PTSD to develop dissociative disorders and personality disorders.

Comorbid PTSD

An extremely common disorder, Comorbid PTSD is the co-mingling of mental illnesses, usually. It is primarily the result of PTSD sufferers attempting to treat it on their own, often through self-medication.
