When an individual is struggling with substance use disorder, it is not uncommon for him to also battle another co-occurring mental health disorder, such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD can cause a bevy of upsetting emotions and impulses. When PTSD is present alongside of substance abuse, symptoms of both conditions can become worse and often require professional treatment. At The Landing, we focus on treating men who have substance abuse issues and co-occurring mental health conditions like PTSD in an effort to help these men manage their symptoms appropriately.
The Landing is a leader in the provision of men’s addiction treatment. Here, men who are addicted to substances and who are co-morbidly afflicted with conditions like PTSD can benefit from our three-phase treatment approach that brings about healthy, long-lasting recovery. Having treated men for nearly 10 years, The Landing is a place where addiction can be stopped and mental health conditions like PTSD can be successfully treated.
Helping a loved one get treatment for PTSD
As a loved one of someone who is struggling with substance use disorder and PTSD, you know just how upsetting it is to watch as they continue to spiral out of control. On a regular basis you try to figure out new and creative ways to get your loved one to accept treatment and end their destructive tendencies. It is no secret that your loved one’s condition negatively impacts you, too. However, there are things that you can do to help your loved one either obtain the treatment he needs or start coming around to the idea of recovery.
For starters, educate yourself about PTSD, from its signs and symptoms to how it relates to substance abuse. The internet can be the most helpful resource for you at this time, as organizations such as Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services (SAMHSA) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) provide excellent resources for the public on their websites. By learning more about this condition and how it co-occurs with substance abuse, you can understand your loved one’s vantage point and begin uncovering more information as you go.
In many instances, power is in numbers. This means that joining forces with other friends or family members of the loved one in question can help bring about a positive ending to an otherwise bleak situation. You can work together to uncover resources, find local treatment centers, and work to approach your loved one in the best manner possible. Also, coming together can help your loved one feel supported when he decides to enter treatment.
One of the most critical things you can do is reach out for professional help. If your loved one is not responding to your interventions, contact a program that treats both addiction and PTSD. They can not only help guide you towards understanding the admissions process, but they can also provide you and your loved ones with resources needed so you can obtain support, as well.
Why consider treatment for PTSD at The Landing of Newport Beach, CA
Men who are grappling with addiction and co-occurring PTSD will go through a series of upsetting effects if they do not obtain treatment. From a physical standpoint, untreated PTSD can cause sleep disturbances and hyperarousal, which can then lend themselves to the development of many behavioral concerns, which may include the abuse of substances. The longer that PTSD and substance abuse simultaneously continue, the more likely it will be that the individual will see many more consequences throughout his life. For example, the presence of these conditions can lead to job loss, financial ruin, divorce, loss of important relationships, and much more. For many, symptoms of PTSD will get worse as time passes, which will continue to impact the overall quality of the individual’s life. It is imperative to understand that there is treatment that can help individuals get the care needed to prevent these types of effects from developing.
Types of PTSD treatment offered at The Landing of Newport Beach, CA
Located along the shores of the majestic Pacific Ocean, The Landing is a leading provider of addiction treatment for adult men age 18 and above. One of the nation’s top 10 luxury rehab centers, The Landing provides clinically excellent care that offers men who are battling addictions and co-occurring mental health conditions the guidance, support, and holistic interventions that they need to live healthier drug-free lives. Through its innovative use of person-centered, cognitive behavioral, and trauma-focused approaches, The Landing sets the standard for truly effective addiction treatment.
Treatment at The Landing occurs in three phases of care: Phase I, residential treatment; Phase II, partial hospitalization programming; and Phase III, intensive outpatient care. These three phases combine to create a full continuum of treatment services that enable clients who come to this center in their darkest hour to leave with the bright promise of a substance-free life. Furthermore, the dedicated professionals at our center are fully devoted to helping men overcome their addictions while reaching and exceeding all of their treatment goals.
When a man elects to receive care at our beachfront center, his first experience will be a complete assessment to identify his unique needs and determine which types of treatment will best meet those needs. With an emphasis on healing each client in mind, body, and spirit, the following types of treatment may become part of a client’s exceptional treatment experience at The Landing:
Medical detoxification: Once an individual stops engaging in substance abuse, uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms can emerge and compromise his efforts to fully participate in the recovery process. When this is the case for a man who has come to The Landing for treatment, our staff is able to help him undergo medically monitored detoxification. Once detox is complete, we then welcome the individual into our community, ready to help him win the war against addiction.
Medication management: For some, managing the symptoms of PTSD requires more than just honing the necessary coping skills to do so effectively. When this is the case, certain psychotropic medications may be helpful for our clients. Within 72 hours of being at The Landing, each man will meet with our expertly trained psychiatrist, who can determine if such medication is appropriate. If medication is prescribed to help a client manage the symptoms of PTSD, our nursing and clinical staff members closely monitor the progress of each client for the duration of treatment.
Individual therapy: Offered three times per week for clients in Phase I of our treatment, individual therapy sessions can be invaluable experiences for men who are working to overcome an addiction and PTSD. Men meet with marriage and family therapist interns for two sessions each week, and then have a scheduled session with one of our certified substance abuse counselors. There is much to gain from receiving individualized attention, and we believe that men can benefit greatly from being able to process their experiences with knowledgeable professionals.
Group therapy: At The Landing, we want to provide our clients with the support, education, and guidance they need to be successful in overcoming an addiction to substances and mental health conditions, such as PTSD. Group therapy sessions, the forums in which men at The Landing convene as a united front against addiction, are integral to the care we supply. The following groups, which are held multiple times per week, are among those that a client may participate in while in our care:
- Life skills implementation
- Trauma groups
- Emotion regulation group
- Nutrition groups
- Recovery movies
- Psychoeducation groups
- Process groups
- 12-Step groups
- Clinical lectures
- Professional development group

Our experiential therapies, which help our clients have a uniquely individualized experience in a group setting, allow men to benefit from therapeutic techniques that are able to heal their minds, bodies, and spirits. The interventions listed below are among the experiential therapy activities that may be included in a client’s customized treatment plan:
- Relationships group
- Hypnotherapy groups
- Art therapy group
- Health and wellness group
- Music therapy
- Gym time
- Acupuncture groups

Family therapy: Having the support of loved ones while on the journey toward a recovered life can enhance a person’s treatment experience. At The Landing, we want to help our clients and those closest to them heal and grow as a unified front against addiction. Led by marriage and family therapy interns, family sessions are available on an as-needed basis, and can help rebuild the bond between our clients and those whom they hold dear.
Family Program: In addition to helping families heal during family sessions, The Landing is proud to offer a Family Program to help friends and family members learn how they can best help themselves during their loved one’s recovery, gain the skills needed to provide effective support, and become more informed about the disease of addiction. This program enables those closest to our clients to participate in group discussions, multi-family sessions with other families, and presentations led by our dedicated staff members.
The aforementioned treatment methods can be incorporated into a client’s personalized treatment plan depending upon his specific needs. Treatment needs and goals are initially assessed during our streamlined admissions process so that the resulting treatment plan elicits the most favorable treatment outcomes. Additionally, should a client’s needs change during the therapeutic process, his treatment plan can reflect these changes and certain interventions can be added as needed.
Following completion of Phase I of The Landing’s treatment, men can then embark on Phase II, and then Phase III of our care. We have designed our programming to see our clients through until they are fully ready to resume their lives, free from the chains of addiction, confident in managing the symptoms of PTSD, and armed with the skills to remain sober for a lifetime.
