Seeing someone you deeply care about struggle to overcome a traumatic past can be challenging. You may worry about their well-being yet feel helpless when confronted by their emotional reactions to the traumatic event.

People experiencing continuing difficulties following a distressing or traumatic event usually become distant or shut down, causing you to feel shut out. This occurs as individuals try not to rethink the trauma or attempt to block out the stressful memories. Others may develop feelings of numbness or sadness due to past trauma and feel out of energy all the time. It is important to remember that all these reactions indicate that your loved one might struggle to cope and require ongoing support. In such circumstances, referring them to a trauma recovery centre is the best thing to offer.

It is essential for patients undertaking trauma recovery treatment to be able to separate their identities from their symptoms. All patients are encouraged to support each other through their recovery processes. The staff appointed to look after the patients aims to help all patients develop compassion by adopting compassionate attitudes themselves.

Most patients that join a trauma recovery centre have underlying issues with belonging and acceptance, particularly because they have been living in isolation, both physically and emotionally, for a long. Hence, trauma recovery for such patients involves breaking this isolation as the first essential element. For people with sexual traumas, efforts are put towards helping them develop self-worth and self-esteem once again. These programs also encourage them to participate in their spiritual, sexual, physical, and psychological growth while supporting them in creating effective coping mechanisms and better ways of thinking.

Different trauma recovery programs have different tracks, and each client is assigned a route depending on their specific needs. One of the most critical parts of these programs that cannot be stressed enough is the need to conduct all therapies in a safe environment to maximise healing. For this purpose, the highly-trained staff members are appointed for round-the-clock supervision and care.

While each treatment facility focusing on traumatic recovery will have its own set of rules, principles, treatment modalities, and schedules, mentioned below are the components of a standard regimen commonly followed by most of them:

  • Therapeutic group to participate in holistic activities like equine-assisted therapy
  • Expressive arts group to overcome traumas and balance emotions using arts
  • Grief group with individuals sharing similar issues
  • Experiential therapy workshops help patients re-enact past traumas to release the emotional burden associated with them
  • Exercise and nutrition plans to promote physical wellness
  • Pain management
  • Educational programs, including sessions on forming boundaries, PTSD, neglect, domestic violence, developing a healthy sexuality, relapse prevention, and more
  • 12-step meetings held on-site at the trauma recovery facility
  • Individual, family and group psychotherapy for a wholesome recovery

Many private mental health recovery centres across the UK offer specialised recovery programs for women who have previously undergone traumas. Most clients enrolled in these programs are women who are sexual assault survivors. In most facilities, the program is offered in a residential setting with a duration of up to 60 days or even more, depending on each client’s needs. It focuses on helping all patients on the following two grounds.

  • To develop interpersonal skills necessary to continue living life in a normal way.
  • To develop intensive skills who may feel that the path to recovery is too rigorous.

Extensive psychological and psychosocial assessments are conducted during the initial days of the program, based on which comprehensive treatment plans are developed.

Women who often come seeking help through this specialised trauma recovery program are often at the edge of disaster and overwhelmed with pain, shame, and humiliation. Through this program, they can share their experiences and bond with other women facing similar issues and come out as a more self-assured and confident version of themselves.
