The aftermath of abuse and trauma can affect the survivor for years. But whether you suffer from a trauma-related mental illness or physical issues like dramatic weight loss, sleeplessness, or academic challenges, the professionals at NeuroHealth Arlington Heights offer effective treatment.
In particular, we provide abuse treatment and trauma treatment for adults, teenagers, and children in and around Arlington Heights. You don’t deserve to deal with trauma- or abuse-related issues on your own. Instead, let our compassionate healthcare team work with you to help you recover and regain your quality of life.
Physical, emotional, mental, verbal, and sexual abuse all leave scars, only some of which are visible. In fact, all types of abuse cause emotional and psychological suffering, not just physical pain. Individuals who experience abuse are disproportionately likely to be diagnosed with a mental illness.
Many survivors struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, or anger. Others experience disassociation or mood swings, engage in self-harm, and have difficulty trusting others, even those who care about them the most. Children in particular might suffer academically and socially and experience changes in weight and sleep patterns.
Victims often blame themselves for the abuse they endured, but abuse is never the victim’s fault. You deserve to find effective treatment for the mental and emotional scars someone else might have caused you. We offer neuropsychological treatments and assessments that help us create individualized treatment plans for each patient.
Those who experience trauma often show similar symptoms as those who experience abuse, and many survivors of abuse experience trauma as well. Trauma can be caused by experiencing a disturbing event, like being abused physically or verbally, but it can also be caused by witnessing a disturbing or violent event.
The symptoms of trauma are also comparable to those of abuse. Again, if you’re diagnosed with trauma, including PTSD, we work closely with you to create a personalized treatment plan that can improve your life and help you recover.
