Sexual trauma, especially childhood sexual trauma, can have a deep harmful effect on a person. It can lead to a wide array of mental health and chemical dependency complications. The University Behavioral Health of Denton has sexual trauma programs staffed with caring and compassionate psychiatrists and clinical professionals dedicated to each patient’s unique needs.
Research has shown that traumatic sexual occurrences can cause severe mental health disorders many years after the original events, and the suffering can continue throughout a long portion of one’s life. Without adequate assistance, sexual trauma can have an extremely negative impact on a person’s mind, body and spirit. Adults who were abused as children often experience problems such depression, anxiety, fear, panic disorders, agoraphobia, or substance abuse.
The Exclusively Women program at the University Behavioral Health of Denton Psychiatric Hospital is specifically designed to treat the unique difficulties of women in crisis. This program addresses sexual trauma and other women’s issues with educational gatherings and specialized therapy sessions that are for women only.
The University Behavioral Health of Denton Freedom Care program is specifically designed for service women who have experienced sexual trauma in combat. The Freedom Care program uses evidence based treatments for sexual trauma or other combat related issues such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It also furnishes therapies for patients with a combination of PTSD and other disorders as part of an integrated system of therapy.
