The effects of emotional and psychological trauma can be devastating, but they do not have to permanently disrupt your life. Cascade Behavioral Health helps adults age 18 and older achieve long-term healing from acute symptoms of psychological trauma through our continuum of services that includes an inpatient program, a partial hospitalization program (PHP), and an intensive outpatient program (IOP).
What is Emotional Trauma
Emotional and psychological trauma can be caused by experiencing a stressful event that destroys your sense of security or makes you feel helpless or vulnerable. While traumatic events often involve a threat to your safety and life, any situation that takes away your sense of control — even if the situation does not cause physical harm — can be traumatic.
A person who is struggling with the symptoms of psychological trauma may experience insomnia, nightmares, agitation, or shock or may become easily startled. For some people, these symptoms might last for a few days or a few months, but others may find that these symptoms become so severe that they can’t function in their day-to-day lives.
Cascade Behavioral Health has helped many people successfully process emotional trauma, allowing them to live healthy, productive lives again.
Care for Psychological Trauma
At Cascade Behavioral Health, we recognize that every person walks a unique path to healing. We offer multiple levels of care for adults age 18 and older who are struggling with severe symptoms of psychological trauma.
It’s crucial that we meet you where you are in your recovery process. Your care for emotional trauma at our hospital in Tukwila, Washington, begins with a detailed intake assessment, which allows us to gather the information we need to identify the type and level of care that best meets your needs.
Our primary focus is making sure that all our patients receive care in an atmosphere of dignity and respect.
You are at the center of our care philosophy, which means that we always put our patients first. Our multidisciplinary team provides holistic care that doesn’t just focus on your symptoms — we care for your whole self, including your mind, body, and spirit.
Throughout your stay at Cascade Behavioral Health, we will work right alongside you to make sure that you feel empowered to take an active role in your care. You will feel compassion, respect, and kindness in every interaction you have with the members of your care team at our hospital in Tukwila, Washington.
Treatment for Emotional Trauma
We recognize that the care you receive at Cascade Behavioral Health may be just one step on your healing journey. To ensure that your progress continues after you transition out of our care, we will create a personalized discharge plan that will include the next best steps on your path to recovery.
You’ll work closely with your care team to develop an aftercare plan that meets your specific healing goals. This might include a referral to an appropriate provider, such as continuing care at a residential program, transitioning to traditional outpatient therapy, or getting recommendations for other community resources.
Wherever you are in your healing journey, we will work with you to make sure that you are set up for long-term success.
