How PTSD is Treated at Growth Extended
Flashbacks, detachment, racing heart rate—the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can come on quickly when triggered by a real or perceived threat of danger. For people who suffer from PTSD, this fills every day with a persistent, often disturbing uncertainty that makes it impossible to feel safe. It means constantly fighting against an urge to flee from threats that may or may not be there. It’s no wonder people struggling with this debilitating anxiety disorder see their personal relationships fall apart, their careers plummet, and their sense of self-worth evaporates before their eyes.
However, not all hope is gone. At Growth Extended, our comprehensive PTSD treatment program addresses the underlying causes of this all-too-common mental health problem. Our holistic treatment approach is personalized to every client who walks through our doors, allowing them to manage PTSD on their own.
Are PTSD Treatments Effective?
If you’re thinking about seeking treatment for PTSD, you’re probably wondering if it actually works. Rightfully so. While it’s true that PTSD can be difficult to treat, finding the right program for you can make all the difference. Part of what makes treatment so tricky is that PTSD may affect multiple regions of the brain, including the amygdala, hippocampus and prefrontal cortex. Not only this, people with PTSD commonly show an increase in stress hormone production, which may contribute to a persistent “fight or flight” state.
At Growth Extended, we believe the best path to recovery from PTSD is to address the person as a whole. After all, everyone is unique; what works for one person may not work for the next. For this reason, we offer an individualized treatment approach that considers your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing—as well as any co-occurring mental health conditions like depression, bipolar disorder or addiction.

Joint Commission Accredited Treatment for PTSD
Many PTSD treatment centers can tell you they offer a great program. But, only the best can back it up with Gold Seal accreditation from the Joint Commission. Founded in 1951, this independent, non-profit organization is nationally recognized as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting key performance standards.
While we’re proud of our accreditation and what it means for our clients, we’re even prouder of what our alumni have to say about their experiences at Growth Extended. From depression and eating disorders to addiction and co-occurring conditions, we specialize in treating the whole person, not just a single set of symptoms.
