Fact - Breakthrough is not designed as the first line of treatment for those who have suffered physical or sexual abuse as children or adults. Those who have experienced trauma need to first participate in primary treatment with a therapist who specializes in trauma. Trauma therapy is centered on achieving bodily, emotional and physical safety in the here and now. Seeking trauma therapy first helps the client to self regulate and reduces the overwhelming emotional and physical sensations caused by the trauma.
Once an individual is determined to be emotionally stable, Breakthrough may be appropriate to help with ongoing patterns, improve self esteem and address relationship challenges. In the five day program, clients are able to work with the fears of normal life, and have a “real time” experience of positive change. The intake process conducted by our trained staff will help identify the best time to attend.
