PTSD outpatient services

Millions of people in the United States currently have posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a mental illness that touches many more than our brave service members alone. You or someone you love may have developed PTSD from experiencing or witnessing life-threatening or traumatic events, such as:

  • sexual assault or threats
  • physical assault or threats
  • natural disasters
  • car accidents or other serious accidents
  • terrorist attacks
  • military combat
  • life-threatening illness or injury
  • secondary trauma (such as first-responder witness of the aftermath of abuse, accidents, death, etc.)

Untreated PTSD may be causing you to relive the event, avoid it entirely or experience heightened emotions—all of which prevent you from carrying on with your day-to-day life in a safe way. We understand how damaging PTSD can be to your well-being and we have the experience and proven-effective therapy methods to help.

At Rogers Behavioral Health, current treatment options include specialized outpatient care:

  • partial hospital program (5 days a week, 6 hours per day)

Inpatient care is also available at all Rogers hospital campuses in Wisconsin.

Your treatment plan is specifically designed for your needs. Our PTSD treatment for adults is based on a proven-effective method called cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and emphasizes prolonged exposure, which will help reduce your anxiety related to the traumatic event. 

Therapeutic approach

While here, you may participate in:  

  • Group therapy
  • Acceptance, self-compassion and mindfulness strategies
  • Experiential therapy
  • Patient and family education
  • Individual therapy

Over time, these techniques and therapies will help you identify your personal values, gain acceptance of your thoughts and feelings and help you begin living the life you want.
