There are supposedly levels of treatment for PTSD. The first is to become safe and stable. To learn to use coping skills. Cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy seem to be the two main treatments, although there are others.
Then, there is apparently a second phase where the actual traumatic events are processed. Today, I happened to see an add for one of these treatment centers. They have been featured as a place for those on the show Intervention to go. They are one of a few treatment centers that does processing. They are also expensive and only take very few insurances.
They actually replied to my post today stating that they would help me to find comparable treatment if I called them. Funny, all of the comparable treatment centers do not accept my insurance. I feel like I am stuck. Why can’t some of these centers have a sliding scale? I feel like I am stuck in my treatment and need to immerse myself in phase 2’in order to progress in therapy.
I am sure that I am not the only one out there struggling with treatment and insurance. It is hard to be treated sometimes no matter how much one may want it.
