South Coast Private runs two types of programs for patients with PTSD. The initial three week group therapy program provides a psycho-educative format by which patients develop insight into the nature of PTSD, symptom management, interpersonal sequelae, and relapse prevention. The group program also provides a stepping stone to the more intensive trauma processing program.
South Coast Private has adopted an innovative approach to the management of PTSD in accordance with the National Guidelines for the Treatment of PTSD. Eligible patients are provided with intensive inpatient one-2-one treatment using trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (for PTSD). This program lasts between 5 and 8 weeks, depending upon the clinical need. Please note; Health fund approval is required to participate in these programs.
