Why Choose Rogers
To provide adults suffering with intense after-effects of trauma and PTSD, Rogers is proud to offer this next level of residential care to patients. In this supportive, home-like setting, patients will work with treatment teams to develop skills needed to face challenges and find the resilience to achieve and maintain recovery. A typical length of stay in residential trauma treatment programs is 30 to 90 days.
At Rogers, patients learn to develop successful coping strategies to address their trauma and reclaim life.
Triggers addressed through our residential treatment:
We understand how damaging trauma can be to someone's well-being and we have the experience and proven-effective treatment to help.
We use therapeutic methods that research shows to be the most effective for reducing symptoms. Depending on the level of care and diagnosis, patients may engage in:
Family involvement is a key part of recovery that allows for more effective treatment and eases the transition after treatment. This includes psychoeducation for family members about their loved one’s symptoms and treatment strategies being used.
A diverse schedule of therapeutic activity helps keep you focused on gaining the skills and understanding to help you cope and manage your trauma recovery. We provide encouragement and daily structured programming to help you meet your goals and improve your quality of life.
In addition to individual sessions with a psychiatrist and other treatment team members scheduled throughout the day and week, you will have access to residential care specialists 24 hours a day. They provide assistance and one-on-one support to help you stay on track with your goals.
