Understanding Mental Health

What is Acute Stress Disorder?

Acute stress disorder often results from trauma. Trauma is the experience of or the threat of the experience of death, serious injury, or sexual violation, specifically in one or more of the following ways:

Traumatic injury impacts the entire body in different ways. It can make someone feel guilt, fear, shame, and pain about what happened. It can cause physical pain and impact relationships. Trauma can also limit a person’s ability to make good decisions and fully process thoughts. In some cases, it will change the way someone sees the world and understands society.

A traumatic event can cause such emotional and psychological trauma that if it is left untreated, an individual may develop other severe disorders. An individual may develop major depressive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorder, or psychotic disorder. Any of these are a sign that a person needs treatment to help process and manage trauma. Fortunately, there are treatment options available for treating trauma from multiple dimensions.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Acute Stress Disorder?

Symptoms of acute stress disorder can begin immediately after a traumatic event. The individual experiences disturbance in the form of intrusion, negative mood, dissociation, avoidance, or arousal in relation to the traumatic event for at least three days through one month after the traumatic event. As well, the disturbance causes distress or impairment in the areas of social, education, occupational, or other significant areas of functioning. Finally, such disturbance is not better explained by the presence of another medical condition, the use of substances or prescribed medications, or by psychosis. The symptoms of Acute Stress Disorder include:

What Are the Differences Between Acute Stress Disorder and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?

In both acute stress disorder and PTSD, a traumatic event occurs that leads to changes in mood and feelings. However, the main difference between acute stress disorder and PTSD is the timing and duration. Acute stress disorder refers to the first month after the traumatic event occurs, whereas PTSD refers to disturbance after a month has passed since the traumatic event. A diagnosis of acute stress disorder is a risk factor for PTSD. However, the majority of people diagnosed with PTSD weren’t previously diagnosed with acute stress disorder.

Silicon is a great program.

Silicon Beach Tx is full of bright staff in a world that feels very dark and isolating. I think if you’re struggling with substance use, it is the best place to go. If you are struggling with mental illness, lower your severity of symptoms at a residential before coming so they can help you as best as possible.

Trauma therapy is a type of therapy used by counselors and doctors to help someone overcome a traumatic event. There is no one specific thing that defines trauma therapy. It includes many different types of therapy that are used separately or together to help one deal with the traumatic event. Trauma treatment helps reduce the symptoms of the trauma. Trauma treatment can help one face what happened in the past and focus on today and not what happened in the past. Treatment also assists one with learning to function in daily life, such as reducing behavior that tends to get in the way of living everyday life. Trauma treatment also can help one overcome addictions that are a cause of the traumatic event. ​
