With the latest update, individuals who were traumatized during active military service or as firefighters, law enforcement officers, or emergency medical service workers can get trauma-informed treatment. The sex addiction center helps patients work through the deleterious effects of the trauma.
This announcement is in line with the facility’s long-standing commitment to providing support to individuals who want to recover from their addiction. The center has enhanced its offerings with trauma-informed care and PTSD treatment for USA military veterans and emergency responders.
Research has shown that individuals who have suffered serious trauma have more beneficial outcomes from therapy in group sessions rather than in private individual sessions. Based on that, clients in the trauma-informed residential program participate in 20 hours of personalized treatment groups per week.
Explanation on the website describes how individuals gain strength and grow emotionally from the external validation they get when they disclose their own issues and then find that others are having similar reactions. At the same time that they gain insight into their own inner turmoil, they gain compassion for others.
Although individual members help each other in this way, Utah Addiction Centers staffs the program with experienced physicians and master level clinicians to direct group and individual sessions.
In addition to therapy sessions, clients can participate in recreational therapy and outdoor adventures, as well as various types of individual and family therapy sessions, all customized to their specific trauma.
Besides trauma-informed residential treatment, Utah Addiction Centers provides treatment programs for sex and porn addiction. The website explains that these addictions can be just as harmful to a person’s mind and spirit as drug or alcohol addiction and can damage a person’s ability to have healthy emotional intimacy with others.
