Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a mental health condition that typically occurs after someone experiences a traumatic event. This condition is most common among members of military, but it can occur in other populations as well. PTSD can affect your quality of life dramatically. In fact, many people become addicted to drugs or alcohol while trying to cope with this condition. If you are dealing with this issue, you may benefit from spending time in PTSD rehab.

What is PTSD Rehab?

A PTSD rehab is a rehab program designed to help people with PTSD learn to deal with the effects of their condition. If the patient has been abusing drugs, for example, this program will help him or her to overcome the addiction and learn better coping mechanisms.

What PTSD Rehab is Best?

A number of different facilities all around the country provide programs geared toward patients with PTSD. Several criteria can be used to evaluate these programs and rank them according to quality. Some of these criteria include:

  • Experience - Some PTSD rehabs have been established for a longer period of time than others. Likewise, some facilities employ more experienced staff members than others do. This experience can increase the program's effectiveness.
  • Success Rates - Most rehab facilities publish recovery or success rates, which are percentages that tell you what portion of program participants recovered successfully. The higher these rates, the more effective the program has been.
  • Reputation - All facilities develop reputations among past patients and members of the medical community. Learning about a facility's reputation can provide you with valuable insight. To find out about the reputation of a given facility, look for reviews online.
  • Amenities - Some PTSD programs offer better amenities than others. For example, some of the best PTSD rehab programs offer gourmet meals, high-end accommodations and recreational activities for inpatient program participants, while others offer only basic amenities.
  • Affordability - PTSD rehab programs may impose different charges for the same services. Likewise, some programs may accept insurance payments, while others may not.
