What is PTSD?

PTSD is a mental health condition that can develop after you experience or witness a traumatic or scary event. You can develop PTSD at any age after exposure to:

  • Violence
  • Sexual abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Natural disaster
  • Auto accident
  • Medical crisis
  • Military combat

The death of a loved one, especially if it’s unexpected or sudden, can also trigger PTSD symptoms.

Peak Interactive Wellness offers comprehensive, compassionate care for PTSD in adults and children. The experienced psychiatry team tailors a treatment plan to ease your symptoms and help you live a happy life.

When should I seek medical care for PTSD?

For some, symptoms of PTSD begin soon after the event, but you may also develop complications in the months or years after the trauma.

Schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Peak Interactive Wellness if you have PTSD symptoms that negatively affect your quality of life, relationships, or ability to meet your responsibilities. These symptoms can include:

  • Flashbacks
  • Nightmares
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Sleep problems
  • Distressing or intrusive thoughts
  • Avoidance of people, places, or events

You may also experience physical symptoms like a racing heart, excessive sweating, and nausea as a side effect of PTSD.

The psychiatry team provides diagnostic screening services in-office and through the virtual telemedicine platform to confirm your symptoms relate to PTSD. They customize a care plan to ease your symptoms and support your ongoing mental well-being.

How is PTSD treated?

Your treatment for PTSD may include a combination of medications to address anxiety or depression and psychotherapy to help you manage the stress PTSD can have on your life.

Peak Interactive Wellness partners with Genoa, a mental health-specific pharmacy, to handle your initial prescription and refills. You work directly with a liaison in the office, so you won’t have to wait on the phone or at the pharmacy to get your medications.

The team may also prescribe ketamine-assisted psychotherapy to manage severe symptoms of PTSD that aren’t responding to medications. Ketamine helps your brain develop new neural connections for fast and lasting relief of depression and other PTSD symptoms.

Psychotherapy sessions are available virtually and in the office. Your therapist works closely with you to identify PTSD triggers and gives you tools to cope with your symptoms in a healthy way.
