Trauma and PTSD causes people to relive events, avoid them, or have them affect their emotions and decision-making. That can lead to troubling behavior, like relying on drugs and alcohol as a way of self-medicating. However, the trauma therapy program at Atlantic Recovery Center allows clients to work through any trauma-related issues in a safe clinical space. Addressing underlying trauma helps individuals accept and give in to their treatment program.

How Our Trauma Therapy Program Helps ClientsDuring a trauma therapy program, a man is comforted by the people around him.

Atlantic Recovery Center uses a combination of traditional therapies along with other evidence-based approaches to address trauma that lies beneath substance abuse or mental disorders. Moreover, we provide comprehensive diagnostic assessments for each client.

Our therapists provide personalized treatment planning and make recommendations on follow-up outpatient are for those enrolled in our residential treatment program. They also evaluate a client’s current medication and look for other therapies they believe would be beneficial.

We help patients overcome triggers for traumas related to:

  • Physical or sexual abuse during childhood or adulthood
  • Surviving a natural disaster
  • Living through a terrorist attack
  • Coming to grips with the realities of military combat
  • Dealing with a life-threatening illness or injury
  • Secondary trauma experienced as a witness to an event

Our trauma therapy program in Davie, FL relies on therapeutic methods proven effective at helping clients work through their problems. They learn skills to help them get through social, personal, and professional scenarios they would experience in the real world. The techniques allow clients to rediscover their own values and figure out the life they want to lead.

How Trauma Therapy Works

Trauma therapy typically breaks down into different phases. The stabilization phase is where you work with a therapist to learn coping skills and find ways of dealing with strong emotions without melting down. Then, during the processing phase, clients learn to incorporate different feelings and thoughts into their memories of a traumatic situation.

Options for Our Trauma Therapy Program

Atlantic Recovery Center is a smaller, more intimate facility than most. For instance, our new residential treatment program only has seven available beds. That lets us give each client the individual focus they deserve. We believe that leads to more positive outcomes and reduces the chances of a relapse after leaving our care. Additionally, clients can roll directly into our aftercare programs after leaving treatment.

For clients who need more flexibility, we offer a partial hospitalization program and an intensive outpatient treatment. Each gives clients the structure and support required for their recovery while allowing them to go home at night. Furthermore, we consider our clients as family, so we celebrate each success and are there when they need more encouragement.

Sometimes people come to us for help while still suffering from withdrawal. We work with Serenity House Detox to get them through the process safely. Once you are safely on the other side, we sit down and give you a complete evaluation.


We look past the physical signs of a substance abuse disorder. Our therapy programs allow us to help clients look deeper and deal with unresolved trauma. Also, they receive education on how they are driving their current actions and show them how to break the patterns of self-abuse. In addition, clients begin finding a new sense of self as they begin resolving the hurt and anger lying beneath.

Clients also get to explore other therapy programs that help them find relief from their traumatic experiences:

  • Dual Diagnosis Treatment
  • Group Counseling
  • Individual Counseling
  • Music and Art Therapy
  • Recreational Therapy
