Dissociative Disorders and Trauma Inpatient Program

Safe and secure care for individuals in crisis

Supporting Trauma Survivors

The Dissociative Disorders and Trauma Inpatient Program provides comprehensive treatment for adults who live with the effects of childhood abuse or other painful traumatic events.

If you struggle with intrusive thoughts and feelings related to traumatic events, emotional numbing and social isolation, memory difficulties, altered perceptions and personality fragmentation, our program may be right for you.

Our staff is particularly attuned to the needs of our patient population and has extensive experience working with individuals who struggle with conditions such as depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and personality disorders.

The program uses a model of treatment that is highly sensitive to the needs of trauma survivors. Emphasis is placed on the overall psychological health and functioning of the individual and not simply on identifying and working on trauma-related symptoms.

Patients receive help in gaining control over their own experiences so that they can proceed in treatment without being re-traumatized by the intense feelings and experiences that invariably arise throughout treatment.

Find the care that’s right for you or your loved one. Call us today at 877.964.5565.

At McLean, we understand that trauma disorders and symptoms caused by traumatic events or experiences can be unique to the individual. Let us show you why McLean is a leader in the treatment of PTSD and other trauma-related disorders.
