Outpatient Mental Health Treatment
Learn more about Novu Wellness and our trauma-informed mental health programs.

PTSD treatment helps people identify and minimize their symptoms while they process the events that led to PTSD. When someone experiences a traumatic event or series of events, it changes who they are and causes distress in multiple areas of their lives. When a person develops post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), they need to seek professional help that gives them a safe place to discuss their emotions and experiences. Novu Wellness provides treatment for PTSD here in Atlanta, Georgia that makes a real difference.

How Does PTSD Treatment Work?

When someone comes to us for PTSD treatment, they have choices for different levels of care. We provide outpatient treatment, which means the person travels to our offices for their appointments without having to move into a residential facility. We offer the following levels of outpatient treatment:

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): The highest level of outpatient care is ideal for someone who needs some of the structure of a residential treatment center but not 24/7 care. PHP includes treatment sessions Monday through Friday that run from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM. 

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): A lower level of care than PHP, it still includes several of the same approaches. The individual attends several weekly therapy sessions that last half a day.

Virtual IOP: This is the same as our regular IOP program but can be done virtually for those who qualify. It takes place on a telehealth platform that allows people to access support via an internet connection in their home or other private setting.

Signs and Symptoms of PTSD

People who have PTSD exhibit physical and emotional signs that may be noticeable to themselves and others. Even when they try to control them, it can be difficult or impossible. Signs that someone is in need of PTSD treatment in Atlanta include:

How Do I Know I Need PTSD Treatment?

Someone who has experienced trauma may think that if they just try hard enough, they can feel better. Still, others try their best to ignore their symptoms, which often end up worsening. If you have gone through or currently are dealing with any of the examples of trauma-causing activities listed above, you may need help. Someone with PTSD finds that they cannot achieve a feeling of moving past the event. It causes difficulties in their ability to participate fully in healthy, loving relationships and move through the world with a sense of calmness. To find out if you need PTSD treatment, speak to your doctor or a mental health professional to receive a full evaluation. From there, a plan of treatment can be devised.
