Residential Treatment Center for PTSD

Inpatient PTSD Rehab Treatment Center

BrightQuest Treatment Centers provide world-class residential treatment and rehab for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other complex mental illnesses.

Our unique therapeutic approach and expert staff ensure your loved one receives treatment and support they need for lasting change. Our evidence-based PTSD treatments, including residential care and therapy, offer the intensity and duration necessary to go beyond immediate stabilization to help our clients attain greater independence.

Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD as it is commonly called, has made its way into mainstream lingo as a term sometimes misused for a variety of trauma or anxiety disorders. It has become a recognized illness in the last 20 years due to the acknowledgment that combat veterans returning from wars have had significant and specific issues—where in the past, the psychological and emotional outcomes of soldiers had mostly gone untreated. One does not have to be a combat veteran to have PTSD, as many individuals who have endured a traumatic event will show symptoms of it—such as childhood abuse, witnessing a death, going through a natural disaster, or experiencing a violent crime.

By learning what effective post-traumatic stress disorder treatment looks like and understanding the value of a long-term residential treatment center for PTSD, you can help your loved one receive the care they need to work toward lasting recovery.

PTSD Treatment


Living with PTSD without mental health rehab treatment can be challenging for your loved one, and watching them suffer can leave you feeling hopeless.

Individuals who suffer from PTSD may self-medicate, isolate, withdraw from society, find it too difficult to engage in everyday tasks, have a hard time making simple decisions, have recurring flashbacks, nightmares, and chronic pain. PTSD residential treatment is an excellent option for help with PTSD to learn how to manage the effects of the disease.

At our BrightQuest locations in San Diego and Nashville, our unique therapeutic model for PTSD rehab and structure of long-term residential care ensure that your loved one will receive the support necessary for healing and recovery. With the guidance of our clinical team, their peers, and your family involvement, your loved one will work through underlying issues, gain strength, build confidence, regain control of their life, and work toward greater independence.

Why Choose BrightQuest?

Focusing on Lasting Behavioral Change

Treatment Options for PTSD


Individuals diagnosed with PTSD can be adverse to professional treatment because one of the main symptoms is isolation and withdrawal. There also may be feelings of shame and guilt, as not being able to control what is happening to them or feeling like they should be able to “get over it.”

A support team of family and friends, doctors, and therapists will be needed, as well as a consistent schedule and education for helping your loved one with PTSD. Support groups for friends and family member are available through treatment centers and national associations.

Residential Treatment for PTSD


At BrightQuest, clients receive the many benefits of our mutually supportive therapeutic community where daily living experiences become a part of the therapeutic process and PTSD rehab. Your loved one will learn and practice the emotional and behavioral skills needed to address the triggers, flashbacks, and anxiety experienced with PTSD. Because your loved one will attend regular therapy, interact with peers and experience support, they are able to more fully understand and integrate the treatments and intervention they have learned during their time in residential treatment at BrightQuest.
