Treatment for PTSD

The majority of people who experience a traumatic incident will experience shock, indignation, nervousness, anxiety, and even guilt. These are normal reactions, and for the most part, they fade away with time.  However, for a person with PTSD, these feelings persist, becoming so intense that they prevent them from going about their  lives as they should. When this happens, professional recommend seeking a treatment center for PTSD. 


Signs of PTSD

  • Unwanted, distressing recollections of the traumatic incident
  • Dreams or nightmares about the traumatic incident 
  • Trying to avoid thinking or talking about the traumatic event
  • Avoiding places, activities or people that remind you of the traumatic event
  • Reliving the traumatic experience as if it were occurring for the first time (flashbacks)

What is Posttraumatic Stress Disorder?

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), also known as shell shock or war fatigue syndrome, is a severe illness that may arise after an individual has been exposed to or witnessed a traumatic or frightening incident in which serious physical damage or danger was present. PTSD is a long-term effect of traumatic experiences that result in extreme anxiety, helplessness, or horror.

It’s not unusual for someone with PTSD to believe they’re alone with their feelings. But at any given time, almost 8 million people in the country have PTSD.

In the modern digital age we’ve seen an epidemic spike in mental health disorders–especially amongst young adults. Record rates of depression, anxiety, suicide, personality disorders, overdoses, increased ADHD and overall malaise. And that was all before Covid; since Covid, depression rates have tripled, anxiety rates have hit record levels and suicides have dramatically increased. According to depression researcher Dr. Steven Ilardi, “Americans are 10 times more likely to have depressive illness than they were 60 years ago…and a recent study found the rate of depression has more than doubled in just the past decade”.
Dr. Kardaras and Dr. Ilardi think that they’ve found the answer: Increased rates of depression  and other mental health woes like anxiety and addiction are a byproduct of our modernized, industrialized and urbanized lives. Our love affair with social media and the gadgets and comforts of being a highly technologically evolved society have made us more sedentary, more isolated and put us on a never-ending treadmill of overworking, under-sleeping and hyper-stressing.
 
 
Young people in particular are increasingly depressed, and their identity and ways of thinking are increasingly and adversely shaped and influenced by their social media platforms and the “social validation feedback loops” that are engineered into our lives via social media . So while there is the illusion of connection via social media, research indicates that Millennials are the loneliest generation, with 25% indicating that they don’t have a single friend.

Help for PTSD

The more Dr. Ilardi looked at the commonalities of these mentally healthy societies, the more he was able to tease out certain common variables; things like living in a close-knit community, being more physically active, having a greater sense of purpose in their lives, not ruminating on the negative. Armed with his findings, he developed a protocol based on these elements called Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes (TLC) and discovered amazing research results when incorporated into the lives of modern Americans.
 
And there is one other key factor as well: For many, the modern age has also vacuumed out a sense of meaning and purpose out of people’s lives. At Omega Recovery, we that that many of our clients are indeed undergoing an existential crisis of meaning and purpose and turning to toxic habits and behaviors to fill the emptiness. In these cases, existential exploration and finding a sense of life purpose is critical in the healing process. 
 
Dr. Kardaras has incorporated “Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes” into the clinical protocols of Omega Recovery in Austin: Unplugging from electronic devices, developing a sense of healing community, physical exercise within a group/community setting, immersing oneself in nature–all combined with existential exploration and traditional psychotherapy and evidence based modalities like CBT and DBT can literally be life-saving.
 
When all of the abovementioned elements are combined together in treatment, the results are often nothing less than human alchemy– a complete psychic transformation.
