Residential Trauma Treatment Programs

Residential Trauma Treatment Program

As expected, traumatic experiences give rise to what is formally defined as trauma and stressor-related illnesses. Exposure to traumatic events like being abused as a child or domestic abuse, sexual assault, severe neglect (often in childhood), war, natural catastrophe, the unexpected loss of a loved one, or violent crime can lead to trauma disorders (as either a victim or a witness).

The after-effects of a traumatic event may not become apparent for a long time after it has occurred. All kinds of traumatic experiences can leave behind emotional and mental wounds that may never completely heal without therapy.

Serious post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is not something that usually goes away on its own. Fear, worry, anxiety, paranoia, and discomfort can manifest suddenly at any time, usually in reaction to people, places, or things that bring up traumatic memories.

Suicidal ideation or conduct is a possible outcome if one does not seek treatment for a severe trauma problem.

Trauma Disorder Symptoms

Your loved one’s emotional and mental stability will be threatened by trauma disorders and associated problems. Depending on the nature and intensity of the traumatic circumstances that emerge, people with these diseases may have a wide range of symptoms.

Among the most typical signs of PTSD or other co-occurring disorders include:

  • Symptoms of extreme anxiety
  • Continual distrust and suspicion
  • Trouble falling asleep or staying asleep
  • Withdrawal from social interactions and constant solitude
  • Inability to process traumatic events and negative emotions
  • Lack of feeling or numbness, including bursts of intense emotion
  • A sense of isolation

At Exclusive Hawaii Rehab, we provide mental health treatment for trauma recovery and acute stress disorder. We also specialize in co-occurring disorders involving substance abuse or otherwise.

Traumatic Conditions Addressed at Our Residential Treatment

Those who have been diagnosed with trauma disorders or problems connected to trauma that produce persistent and long-lasting symptoms can benefit from our high-quality, evidence-based holistic trauma treatment.

PTSD following a Traumatic Event

PTSD is one of the trauma-related illnesses we treat. When someone with PTSD recalls a traumatic incident, they may experience distressing flashbacks to the time when it occurred, as if the triggering circumstances were occurring once more. Those who suffer from post-PTSD frequently experience intrusive and distressing thoughts and dreams about traumatic experiences, are readily triggered by environmental or social cues, and struggle to maintain emotional regulation.

Complex PTSD (C-PTSD)

Complex PTSD is a more severe type of PTSD. It has comparable effects, but the symptoms can be far more severe and debilitating. Chronic PTSD develops after months or years of experiencing distressing flashbacks or memories of the traumatic incident.

Adjustment Disorders

Disorders of adjustment: an adjustment disorder may be diagnosed when a person has trouble adjusting to significant life changes like the death of a loved one, the diagnosis of a serious disease, the loss of a job, the end of a relationship, or any other traumatic experience. Concurrent mental health issues, such as depression or substance misuse, are a common reason people with these disorders seek mental health treatment or trauma treatment.

Relationship Trauma

Relationship Trauma

Relationship scars sustained over the course of a long period of time might make it difficult to build or maintain new relationships. Treatment strategies must address not just the mental health issue itself but also its origins in prior dysfunctional or toxic relationships because of the significant likelihood of developing such disorders among those who have experienced relational trauma.

Dissociative Disorders

Although they are not technically trauma disorders, these incapacitating ailments often manifest after exposure to trauma so acute and frightening that it causes a change in the brain. Mental and emotional disconnection (depersonalization) and lapses in continuity (dissociative amnesia) are hallmarks of dissociative disorders (derealization).

In severe cases, they might trigger the emergence of whole new identities. Disorders of dissociation are multifaceted and may call for protracted, intensive, and interdisciplinary care at a trauma treatment center.

Dissociative illnesses are indicators of underlying mental health issues and should not be taken lightly. Untreated PTSD increases the likelihood of developing dissociative disorder, therefore the two conditions are often diagnosed together. Many people with dissociative disorders, both men and women, turn to self-medication with substances like drugs and alcohol in order to cope with the disorder’s distressing symptoms. Substance abuse is most likely to develop if treatment ignores dissociation symptoms. Our trauma treatment center provides care for this condition.

Any form of severe mental disorder presents substantial difficulties in daily living. Having your loved one undergo intensive therapy at Exclusive Hawaii Rehab, where we will help them toward empowerment in their transition to a healthy, sustainable lifestyle, may have a profound and long-lasting effect on their condition.

Co-Occurring Disorders

Statistics show that almost 80% of sexes equally suffer from other mental or behavioral health issues alongside PTSD. Anxiety disorders, acute stress disorder, depression, and drug abuse are the most prevalent diagnosis in these cases. Your loved one’s risk of developing other disabling disorders increases the longer they continue without attending a trauma treatment center for their PTSD.

Who Needs Trauma Therapy?

Both men and women who have experienced marital trauma or adjustment problems are at high risk for developing an addiction. Many people opt to self-medicate with alcohol or drugs when they don’t have access to professional help, and as a result, they develop dependency.

Those who have experienced relationship trauma may also be more susceptible to anxiety disorders and depression. People who are prone to have a poor reaction to a major loss or disappointment are more likely to suffer from an adjustment disorder.

Inpatient trauma treatment centers’ offerings are sometimes complicated by the presence of co-occurring problems. However, the most effective method is one that treats all illnesses in equal measure at the same time with the right treatment programs. At Exclusive Hawaii, we use complete diagnostic tools to evaluate our clients and offer comprehensive dual-diagnosis treatment that can help in such cases.

Getting a Loved One into a PTSD Treatment Program

PTSD Treatment Program

The vast majority of persons suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder are aware of their need for care. However, individuals may be too ashamed or embarrassed to seek help from mental health specialists or relatives who may potentially intercede on their behalf. Their illnesses might worsen to the point where they are unable to initiate admittance into a treatment program alone.

Those who have loved ones who will stand by them through their mental health issues have a significantly higher chance of attaining a full and lasting recovery than those who do not. You may send healing vibes their way and show them how much you believe in them by being there for them through the ups and downs of their recovery.

Once they’ve accepted your support, they’ll be more open to consulting with mental health specialists.

Holistic Treatment at Inpatient Trauma Treatment Centers

For PTSD sufferers and others dealing with the after-effects of trauma, a holistic approach that goes beyond traditional medicine can be quite beneficial. Holistic trauma therapy includes:


Massage therapy is the practice of manually manipulating soft body tissues for therapeutic purposes, such as stress reduction and general well-being. Researchers looking examined the effects of massage therapy on veterans’ physical discomfort, stress, anxiety, and depression and concluded that it was the most effective integrative treatment. The feeling of dissociation (when a person feels “disconnected” from themselves) is common among trauma survivors, and other studies suggest massage treatment may provide relief.


A small needle is inserted into a specific acupuncture point on the body. In order to activate nerves, muscles, and connective tissue, acupuncture needles assist regulate the body’s energy flow. Veterans were studied and it was shown that acupuncture helped them sleep better, including those who had been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or another trauma-related condition.



When practiced regularly, the physical and mental benefits of yoga can be substantial. Because there are so many various kinds of yoga, practitioners of all ages and physical levels may discover a practice that suits them.


Reiki is a form of alternative medicine used to balance and harmonize the body’s energy fields, thus the name “energy healing.” In a Reiki treatment session, the practitioner will lay their hands on the patient’s body in various positions and hand positions to promote relaxation and overall health. After receiving Reiki sessions, individuals who had experienced trauma were evaluated using a PTSD checklist. Clients with PTSD who got Reiki sessions said their symptoms lessened. These findings are significant in the field of trauma treatment.


Mindfulness, or the capacity to live in the present moment, is the goal of meditation’s aforementioned set of procedures. This practice uses deep breathing and other methods to improve mental clarity, optimism, and focus. One study found that meditating helped PTSD patients by reducing PTSD symptoms and improving sadness.
