Our psychiatrists are qualified in the efficient diagnosis and treating of PTSD, they will guide you through an assessment during your initial evaluation appointment, discussing your experiences, feelings, and symptoms. This evaluation follows criteria outlined in the DSM-5, a recognized diagnostic manual used by behavioral health specialists.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is typically treated through a combination of medication, psychotherapy, and eventually, self-management coping strategies.
In terms of medication, there are several options available to help manage PTSD symptoms. The first class of medications falls under SSRI, such as Prozac (fluoxetine) or Zoloft (sertraline). Another category is SNRI, which includes Cymbalta (duloxetine) or Effexor XR (venlafaxine). Additionally, medications like Prazosin have been utilized to alleviate nightmares associated with PTSD. In addition to these options, your provider might try Atypical antipsychotics that have also proven effective in reducing anger and intrusive thoughts associated with PTSD.
Psychotherapy stands as a primary treatment for PTSD and can be conducted individually or within a group setting. Trauma-Focused Therapy and Prolonged Exposure (PE) therapy are two forms of cognitive-behavioral therapies commonly employed for treating PTSD. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) represents another therapeutic approach involving the processing of traumatic memories while simultaneously focusing on a distracting stimulus, such as hand movements or sounds.
Patients also need to leverage self-management coping strategies that they learn in therapy to manage symptoms and stress. These strategies can include meditation, relaxation techniques, regular physical activity, maintaining a healthy diet, refraining from alcohol and drugs, and ensuring sufficient sleep."
