Childhood abuse. Workplace accidents. Military Trauma. Violence and crime. Sudden loss or destruction. Healing from such traumatic events requires courage, strength, and perseverance. Survivors of trauma must learn to cope with painful memories, a sense of isolation, and feelings of shame, guilt, and fear. Many also experience symptoms of depression or anxiety and may suffer from addiction.
Homewood Health Centre's Program for Traumatic Stress Recovery (PTSR) is the only in-patient program of its kind in Canada. This program helps people recover from the after-effects of trauma.
