NEW METHODOLOGIES IN PTSD TREATMENTS
Here is background on this release. PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) is a growing problem throughout Canada. First responders and others who confront stress on a day-to-day basis are among those most likely to suffer from trauma and therefore seek out PTSD treatment programs in Canada. The PTSD program is available to first responders (firefighters, paramedics, police, RCMP), veterans, armed forces, corrections officers, and other "helping" professionals who are struggling with work-related stress injuries. This program involves intensive medical, psychiatric, and psychology care one on one and in groups.
The program focuses on providing clients with (1) therapies designed to build self regulation skills to deal with dissociation, anxiety, depression, anger, and other symptoms of trauma/PTSD, and (2) therapies designed to help clients make sense of suffering and pain so they can go forward in pursuit of a meaningful life. For these reasons, Sunshine Coast Health Centre is proud to announce participation in a MAPS study on psychedelics.
