Trauma Disorder Care: Emphasizing Safety and Stability
Our recovery-oriented program provides a range of treatment services, which we offer based on individual needs. We provide a structured and supportive environment that emphasizes safety and stabilization.
Each part of our community — patients, providers, and staff — is important to recovery and healing. Our program uses a therapeutic milieu model, that emphasizes a positive group dynamic that fosters peer-to-peer support. Here, patients help each other identify maladaptive patterns and find better ways to cope with symptoms. Learn more about inpatient trauma treatment.
