Inpatient Trauma Treatment Center
Inpatient Trauma Treatment
Corner Canyon Recovery’s inpatient trauma treatment center is Trauma-Informed, meaning that all elements of the program are designed to make the client feel emotionally and physically safe. The setting, programming, and staff/client interactions are all implemented with the client’s emotional comfort and safety in mind. Our trauma treatment center is completely non-punitive, meaning that clients are not written up or given a consequence for breaking rules, rather we process these kinds of behaviors clinically. We utilize Seeking Safety as one of the Trauma Specific Modalities for trauma care at Corner Canyon Recovery.
Types of Trauma
Trauma is defined as any type of damage to the mind, body, and/or spirit as a result of an overwhelming, severely distressing event in life. Further studies of traumatic stress show that trauma is now representative of two types of trauma; “Big T” and “Small t” Trauma. Before these were differentiated, trauma was only thought of as Big T trauma.
Big T Trauma – Big T traumas are significant, devastating, and often isolated incidents. These events may include natural disaster, sexual assault, car accident, robbery, or war. Because of the distressing nature of these experiences, survivors are left feeling helpless.
Little t Trauma – Little t traumas are not always life-threatening events, but are often events that exceed our emotional capacity. These events may include repetitive, non-isolated occurrences such as being bullied, called names, or humiliated. Little t trauma may also be tied to extremely stressful life events such as starting a new job, divorce, financial trouble, or having a child.
Trauma and PTSD Treatment Center
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a frequent outcome of trauma and can be successfully treated at Corner Canyon’s trauma treatment center. PTSD symptoms usually start quickly after the traumatic event, but they may not appear until much later. They may also come and go. If the symptoms last for more than four weeks, cause a lot of distress, or interfere with your home or work life, you may have PTSD.
Corner Canyon uses multiple modalities to treat PTSD, including EMDR, Brain Spotting, Art Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Vitanya, which provides Brain Balancing, a technology-based brain intervention designed to effectively treat PTSD symptoms without medications. Clients have reported better sleep with a significant reduction in nightmares, less anxiety and rumination, reduced startle reflex, the ability to decrease or stop anti-depressant medications while feeling much better, and many other improvements in mental health. Vitanya is a 90 day process that can be completed remotely if the client does not stay for that amount of time.
PTSD symptoms are different for everyone, but the most common symptoms include:
- Reliving the event
- Avoiding situations that remind you of the event
- Having more negative beliefs and feelings.
- Hyperarousal (feeling keyed up)
- Feelings of shame, hopelessness, or despair
- Depression or anxiety
- Drug or drinking problems
- Physical symptoms and/or chronic pain
- Work problems
- Relationship problems
PTSD can often be successfully treated at Corner Canyon’s inpatient trauma treatment center in 8-14 sessions. Our clinicians are trained in multiple research-based treatments, such as exposure therapy, cognitive processing therapy, EMDR therapy, and are currently being trained in Brainspottting”.
