Holistic Early Childhood Trauma Treatment Center San Diego Trusts

client and therapist working at the Early Childhood Trauma Treatment Center San Diego turns toEarly life trauma traditionally refers to traumatic experiences witnessed or experienced by children (0 to age 6). Children struggle to verbalize or otherwise express their feelings in a way adults understand. As a result, we tend to dismiss the impact of traumatic events that threaten their safety (or the safety of their caregivers). Increasingly, research has demonstrated that age doesn’t shield children from the effects of traumatic incidents.

When early life trauma is left unaddressed, it often interferes with mental health, physical health, and relationships during adolescence and adulthood. Fortunately, True Life’s childhood trauma treatment center in San Diego can help individuals work past a number of potentially traumatic incidents through trauma therapy.

Early childhood trauma can be due to many types of incidents, including:

  • Domestic violence
  • Abuse and neglect
  • Natural disasters
  • Painful medical procedures
  • Accidents

Early Childhood Trauma Treatment at True Life Center

Early childhood trauma is often a factor in mental health or co-occurring substance use conditions. Fortunately, these conditions can be effectively treated with a combination of psychotherapy, psychiatric interventions, and integrative services. Treatments such as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) have a very high success rate in the treatment of early life trauma. In addition, a number of medications have proven to be useful in alleviating symptoms. This mind-body approach is crucial for healing physiological conditions like PTSD.

True Life Center’s neurobiological approach combines acupuncture, fitness, mindfulness, yoga, and nutrition with psychotherapy and psychiatric interventions. As a result, patients learn to mitigate trauma’s impact on the mind and body and develop strategies for sustainable health practices.

True Life Center strives to provide the right combinations of treatments, programs, and services, to meet the needs of every patient. We understand that certain events affect individuals differently, so treatment should never be a one-size-fits-all proposition. Instead, we take the time to meet with our clients and determine their specific needs.

We also understand that trauma can lead to other issues, like addiction. We’re ready to combat these co-occurring disorders and provide a variety of drug addiction treatment programs. These include:

  • Benzodiazepine addiction treatment
  • Alcohol addiction treatment
  • Cocaine addiction treatment
  • Marijuana addiction treatment
