Trauma Recovery Programs
Our trauma recovery programs are focused on resiliency and reunification. The goal of resiliency is to help the client heal from traumatic life experiences to move them to a healthy lifestyle. Reunification is an especially important piece of this program because of the ability for the client, following achievement in resiliency, to move with the family toward healthy relationships - this being vital to the client's children. The intensive and long term programs are developed specifically for adult men. We will use evidence based counseling treatments, primarily cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Dsensitization and Repressing (EMDR), with other theories and modalities available as needed. The Refuge will see clients become healthy individuals, reestablish beneficial family roles, and productive community members.
Our program is designed for Military Veterans and Civilians.
This program is a nine month alternative program. Three phases here include stabilization, trauma treatment, and reunification. This programs' focus will emphasize reunification by including family therapy and provider support such as job skills. The framework of this level of programming is vital to the wellness of each client and achieved through understanding the dynamics of relationships and conflict management. Accountability is vital to each mans future; being accountable as a future or current husband and father; these values being the backbone of our program, set our program apart from other programs. To achieve reunification, our clients will identify loved ones, together with their children, that will be included in voluntary treatment. This program will allow the client to have a safe and secure environment to reach established goals.
Every man who enters our program has encountered the life-shattering consequences of trauma; whether they have sacrificed by choice or by survival. 60.7% of men have experienced a traumatic event in their lives. Although not a complete list, the most common events are sexual assault, combat, and childhood abuse. We seek to provide a place of Refuge for all suffering from trauma.
Without treatment and support, PTSD causes devastating effects in the lives of these veterans and civilians and for their families... in fact:
Refuge Trauma & Counseling Center - is a unique concept in the care and treatment of men afflicted with PTSD and for their families. Our goal is to bring each man to resiliency and reunification:
This calling is to be fulfilled by providing a safe and secure environment for our clients to heal from trauma and to re-learn their accountability as husbands, fathers, family members and friends. Clients' individual goals for reunification will be achieved by tapping into their natural potential for resiliency.
Barracks-style housing will aid clients with comfortably familiar surroundings while they transition into and out of long-term inpatient treatment. During their stay, these men will work as a unit to support each other through their healing and to build important relationship skills.
