Trauma is an unfortunate reality for millions of women across the United States and throughout the world. According to the National Center for PTSD, slightly more than 50 percent of women will experience at least one traumatic event in their lifetime. Domestic violence, sexual assault, child sexual abuse, and the sudden death of a loved one are among the most common types of trauma experienced by women in the U.S. In many cases, women who experience trauma will be able to process the experience in a healthy manner over time. However, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) reports that about 8 percent of women who survive trauma will develop posttraumatic stress disorder, or PTSD.
PTSD is a serious mental health condition that is characterized by the development of several distressing symptoms following exposure to one or more traumatic events. Symptoms of PTSDinclude but are not limited to recurrent involuntary memories, dissociative reactions during which the person re-experiences the trauma, marked physiological reactions to reminders of the trauma, and avoidance of people, places, conversations, or other reminders of the trauma. Individuals who develop PTSD may withdraw from family and friends, experience a persistent inability to experience happiness, and engage in reckless or self-destructive behaviors, including substance abuse. The abuse of alcohol or other drugs is unfortunately common among women who are struggling with PTSD. Without proper treatment, the substance abuse and the PTSD can exert a continued negative effect on the afflicted women, pulling her deeper into a downward spiral of addiction and despair. The important thing to know is that there is help available at rehab and treatment centers for addiction and co-occurring posttraumatic stress disorder.
At The Rose of Newport Beach, we have significant experience helping women whose lives have been disrupted by substance use disorders and PTSD. Within our nurturing and supportive environment within our treatment and rehab center, women can benefit from specialized programming that has been specifically developed to help them heal from trauma, overcome the distressing symptoms of PTSD, and escape the compulsion to engage in substance abuse.
Helping a loved one or family member get PTSD treatment
If someone you care about has endured or been exposed to trauma, it is likely that she will experience a range of negative emotions, including but not limited to sadness, anger, fear, and grief. Unfortunately, such psychological pain is a normal part of the healing process. However, if these symptoms persist or worsen to the point that they infringe upon your loved one’s ability to function socially, occupationally, or in other areas of her life, then professional assistance from a treatment and rehab center specializing in addiction and co-occurring PTSD may be in order. Please consider the following
- First, it is essential that you educate yourself on the signs and symptoms of PTSD. Consult reputable and reliable sources, such as the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) or the National Center for PTSD, to ensure that you understand the variety of ways that PTSD may reveal itself.
- If your loved one is also engaging in substance abuse, it will be beneficial for you to learn about the drug or drugs that she has been using. You should also familiarize yourself with the disease of addiction and the signs and symptoms of a substance use disorder.
- If you can, enlist other friends or family members in the effort to help keep your loved one safe while you all work together to get her the professional help from a treatment and rehab center for addiction and posttraumatic stress disorder that she needs.
- Research the types of treatment and rehab centers that have helped other women whose situation is similar to what your loved one is experiencing, and identify treatment centers that provide the programming that seems best suited to meeting your loved one’s unique needs.
- Talk to your loved one. Just as importantly, listen to her. Share your research on treatment and rehab centers that address addiction and PTSD, help her to understand PTSD, discuss what you believe to be the best options for helping her to overcome the challenges that she is experiencing. Most important of all, reassure her of your continued love and support.
- When your loved one has agreed to get help at her chosen treatment and rehab center for her addiction and PTSD, eliminate the logistical obstacles that may prevent her from doing so. Provide transportation, cook meals, arrange for childcare, and take care of all other responsibilities so that she can focus on the essential work of getting better.
Of course, please remember that treatment is just one step on the long path of recovery. Depending upon your loved one’s unique circumstances, she may require a variety of personal and professional support following her initial treatment experience.

Why consider treatment for PTSD at The Rose in Newport Beach, CA
Without proper treatment, posttraumatic stress disorder and a co-occurring substance use disorder can have a profoundly detrimental impact on virtually all aspects of a woman’s life. The distressing symptoms of PTSD can make it difficult or even impossible for a woman to perform to her potential in school or at work, which can lead to failure, expulsion, job loss, and unemployment. Women who are struggling with PTSD will have trouble maintaining healthy interpersonal relationships and are likely to withdraw from friends and family members, thus denying themselves of essential sources of support at a time when they are most needed. Without proper treatment, a woman who cannot escape the psychological pain of PTSD may turn to alcohol or other drugs as a means of numbing herself. This misguided behavior is likely to exacerbate the PTSD symptoms while also introducing a host of other risks into the woman’s life. Chronic substance abuse can cause considerable damage to a woman’s physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social wellbeing. With her mind and body weakened by substance abuse, and her life also plagued by the symptoms of PTSD, a woman will find it difficult to escape this downward spiral without effective professional help at a high-quality rehab and treatment center for addiction and co-occurring posttraumatic stress disorder.
