Trauma Counseling

What Is Trauma Counseling?

At Pearl of the Sea Retreat, our trauma counseling helps clients begin to heal from past experiences. This is an important part of the recovery process. Too many addiction treatment centers address a person’s problems in a compartmentalized way, but our problems do not occur separate from each other. Therefore, we focus on treating them simultaneously.

However, at our trauma counseling program in St. Augustine, our team can assess and address your problems. Moreover, the ultimate goal is to create a treatment regimen that perfectly fits your needs. The better our staff gets to know you, the better they can help you through your struggles.

Do I Need Trauma Counseling?

This question can be hard to answer. On the one hand, some people are very aware of trauma in their past. They may even be aware of how it affects their addiction. However, many others are not consciously in touch with their trauma.

By its very nature, trauma causes many people to dissociate. They push it down to avoid dealing with it. If you are struggling with addiction, it’s possible that you are wrestling with your past in some way. This is why it’s so critical to have a trauma counseling on hand. During your therapy, you may discover that a force you didn’t know existed is affecting you.

Pearl of the Sea’s trauma therapy and counseling can help you confront your past and present struggles. We recognize that for your recovery to be long lasting, you must be healthy as a human being. Therefore, we assert that abstinence from the substance itself is not enough to find healing.

How Can I Begin Healing from Trauma?

The first step is to seek out professional help. At Pearl of the Sea Retreat, we help our guests through our comprehensive addiction treatment services. Through our services, we intend to help you heal every part of yourself.

For instance, your physical health may need a boost. We provide a number of services to help precisely that. Specifically, nutritional therapy, exercise, rest, and pain management are all a part of our program. This will help you physically heal and will help teach you discipline in the way you care for your body.

Your needs may be more specific to the mental health and emotional aspects. For that we have many evidence-based therapies:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical behavior therapy
  • Trauma therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Dual diagnosis treatment

We also offer unique therapies to help your spiritual health as well. These include:

  • Pet therapy
  • Marine therapy
  • Music therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Meditation and mindfulness

I had a great time in treatment and learned a lot. Staff was very nice. I thoroughly enjoyed the groups and would recommend to anyone seeking help. I will definitely come back to visit for Alumni events with Stay the Course!

When I came to “The Pearl” back in November, on the day after Thanksgiving, I was lost. I had just relapsed after 2 years clean. The Pearl of the Sea Retreat revived my desire for sobriety and my recovery. The staff was beyond loving and cared about me more than I cared for myself.

Having arrived sick and scared I was on the ropes about another treatment but the kindness of the staff and camaraderie of my peers let me settle in a comfortable healing process.
