Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that can develop in response to a tragic occurrence. PTSD can be caused by a single or a sequence of events such as: loss of a loved one, rape, accident, a violent attack, a natural disaster, child abuse, spouse abuse, etc. Many individuals who have experienced psychological trauma turn to various substances to numb their senses to disconnect from their troubling memories. Untreated PTSD is unlikely to disappear and can contribute to chronic pain and depression which undermines the best addiction treatment efforts. In fact, untreated trauma is often one of the main causes of relapse. Understanding the importance of having resolved trauma related issues in order to increase the chances of any successful recovery, we at Center for Addiction Recovery have sought the expertise of one of the nation’s best trauma therapist, Dr. Jon Connelly – founder and developer of Rapid Trauma Resolution Therapy. Dr. Connelly’s Rapid Resolution Therapy® eliminates emotional pain and destructive behavioral patterns that are the manifestation of psychological and physiological effects of trauma.

PTSD in the United States*

PTSD, one form of trauma disorder, not only pose a major challenge to the foundation of many of the families in United States, but they have been proven to be a costly problem to the nation as a whole, as well. An estimated 5.2 million American adults ages 18 to 54, or approximately 3.6 percent of people in this age group in a given year, have PTSD. In 1990, anxiety disorders cost the U.S. an estimated $46.6 billion. Untreated PTSD from any trauma is unlikely to disappear and can contribute to chronic pain, depression, drug and alcohol abuse and sleep problems that impede a person's ability to work and interact with others.

According to psychologist R.C. Kessler's findings from The National Comorbidity Survey Report (NCS) that examined over 8,000 individuals between the ages of 15 to 54, almost 8 % of adult Americans will experience PTSD at some point in their lives, with women (10.4%) twice as likely to be victims as men (5%).
