About Trauma Treatment

Women who survive trauma and abuse are often hesitant and possibly fearful of seeking help. Understanding that private, safe and compassionate care is available and affordable is important. It also helps to know that new treatment modalities are being used that have been shown to help improve symptoms and change lives. While all programs at Sovereign Health use trauma-informed care, our Chandler, Arizona facility has a specialized trauma treatment program just for women.

Trauma-informed Care

Sovereign Health of Arizona uses a trauma-informed approach to the care of all of our patients. This simply means that we do the following, according to Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) guidelines:

  1. We realize the widespread impact of trauma and understand the paths to recovery.
  2. We recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma in clients, families and others.
  3. We respond by fully integrating our knowledge about trauma into all of our policies, procedures, and practices.
  4. We seek to actively resist re-traumatization of our patients.

This trauma-informed approach to care provides every patient the safety, support, collaboration and empowerment she needs to be able to recover from trauma and its effects. Trauma-informed care is provided for all patients in our trauma program and all of our other programs as well.

Trauma-specific Treatment

Trauma-specific treatment addresses the consequences of trauma and fosters resilience, so as to promote healing and prevent further traumatization.
