Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in Young Adults

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in Young Adults

By: Josh White, MA, LCMHC, CGPPosted: Section: Articles

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is not something that is only experienced by adults; unfortunately, it is a sad reality for many teenagers who are just coming into adulthood.

PTSD in Young Adults is a Major Issue

PTSD in young adults is something that must be confronted and managed as quickly as possible. The National Institute of Mental Health defines Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as a type of chronic anxiety that occurs as a direct result of seeing or experiencing a traumatic event. Many people have the misconception that only those who have dangerous jobs or have experienced some type of horrible tragedy can experience PTSD, but that is not the case. It is far more common in children and young adults than many people realize. In fact, the National Center for PTSD lists four main reasons that young adults could potentially experience this debilitating condition. These include neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse and psychological abuse. Of course, these are certainly not the only reasons that someone might experience PTSD. Everyone knows that PTSD is dangerous and that it requires someone with specialized knowledge to help a person who is suffering from it. The question then becomes, what is the best way to help a young adult who is struggling with this challenge?

Finding Realistic Solutions for PTSD

Red Mountain Sedona (RMS) specializes in helping young adults deal with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. RMS also helps individuals who are suffering from "failure to launch". Regardless of the reason behind their suffering, Red Mountain Sedona provides realistic solutions that will help them learn how to cope and eventually, how to thrive in everyday life.

Methods Used in Treatment

Red Mountain assists individuals in a variety of ways, using a multi-pronged approach. This involves intensive physical activity coupled with emotional and spiritual fellowship, therapy, and evaluation of the individual's personal journey. All of these activities are combined to help sort through all of the clutter and see things in a different light. This is when the transformation starts to take place. Our young adults participate in martial arts, mindfulness therapy, various 12 step programs, yoga, group and individual therapy, life skills management and other physical activities. All of these programs are designed to help our clients whether they are suffering from failure to launch, PTSD, or other problems.

PTSD & Young Adults Article Summary

Obviously, no one wants to suffer through endless days of despair. This is where Red Mountain Sedona comes in. RMS gives young adults the chance to succeed where their other attempts at finding peace have failed. It also gives them the skills that they will need to find success as they continue along their journey so that they can truly enjoy their lives instead of being controlled by their fears.
