Chandler facility provides dual diagnosis treatment with a focus on trauma and abuse
Chandler, AZ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/10/2014 --Over two million women a year are victims of domestic violence, with a third of female trauma victims developing post-traumatic stress disorder and substance abuse issues as a result. Sovereign Health is pleased to announce the opening of its Chandler, Arizona residential treatment center on Monday, October 13th, offering a specialized trauma track in addition to addiction, dual diagnosis, mental and behavioral health treatment exclusively for women. Accompanying dual diagnosis treatment of co-occurring disorders, Sovereign Health’s new facility offers a treatment program that is mindful of the relationship between past trauma, addiction and mental health issues.
Set in a relaxing and safe location in Chandler, the residential treatment center provides a holistic approach to treatment as well as female-centric activities and therapies. A typical day at the facility would include exercise and yoga after breakfast, followed by psychoeducation on various topics such as addiction and relationships. Around noon, participants can take life skills training on issues like body image or self-esteem and participate in therapy such as cognitive skills training, process groups or mindfulness-based stress reduction. More alternative approaches are also offered during the evening, including psychodrama, holistic wellness and grief and loss classes. After dinner, patients will usually have a meeting followed by free time before bedtime.
“Sovereign Health is looking to expand their treatment model to focus on the co-occurrence of trauma and addiction in adult women,” said Monica Powers, Program Director at Sovereign Health of Arizona. “The program has been designed to be a healing treatment experience tailored to women who have experienced short or long-term traumatic experiences or difficulty with co-occurring addiction. Sovereign Health’s Arizona location is one of the few in the country to focus on this underserved population and promote the safety and serenity of women’s only treatment.”
With a third of all females suffering from PTSD developing alcohol dependence or substance abuse issues, Sovereign Health recognizes the elevated risk that trauma poses to the development of addiction and mental disorders. While many rehabilitation facilities only address cases involving addiction, their treatment centers offer programs that address all underlying issues.
