When your inner world has been painfully overwhelming, it’s hard to imagine a life free from the pain. Sounds, scents, images and feelings can call up memories of abuse, neglect or life-altering events. Sometimes we can’t even recognize the triggers as these painful events replay in our minds, keeping us up at night or preventing us from doing the things we love.
Trauma and PTSD survivors often learn to adapt and develop responses that seem like self-care, but are actually coping mechanisms to avoid or numb the pain. These coping mechanisms serve us well, until they don’t. But there is more to life than just getting through the day. Resolving your trauma will allow you to break free from the binds of your past.
As a result of the stress and burnout caused by the demands at work, executives and professionals may experience some of the conditions below, especially when faced with a crisis:
If left untreated, such conditions may have a devastating impact on you and everyone in your life. Some of the damaging effects are strained social relationships, family misunderstandings and conflicts, decline in work productivity, and even loss of job. This is why it is much better to seek proper help as soon as possible to avoid further complications that could have regrettable effects on your well-being.

How can Roots help us?
One of the reasons professionals don’t seek help is the fear that they won’t be understood, or that their condition will change the way the world views them. Finding a treatment center that can help you with your mental health or substance use issues, and provide an environment where you can heal among peers and staff who understand your position is critical. The vast majority of the people we help are working professionals who are going through the same thing you are, and our program focuses on helping you find a balance that will allow you to be successful long after treatment.
