Not just experienced by deployed military and first responders
Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is an anxiety disorder that stems from a life-threatening event or psychological trauma. Although often associated with soldiers, police officers, and other emergency personnel involved in life-threatening situations, the disorder can be triggered by any overwhelming experience. Whatever the source, it can cause extreme edginess, unprovoked anger, and disturbing memory flashbacks.
The fear felt during traumatic events can have lifelong consequences, with many individuals suffering in silence. Others seek to minimize its effects through self-destructive activities, using drugs, alcohol, food, or sexual behaviors to numb their pain.

Our research reveals that more than 90% of Gentle Path patients report experiences of severe trauma and a significant number show symptoms of adult PTSD. Sex addiction treatment that addresses trauma has proven to be more effective and successful than clinical practices that don’t take trauma into consideration. And the rate of recidivism with sex addiction treatment that is trauma-informed is significantly lower than other modalities.
The Gentle Path team of treatment professionals understands how trauma affects psychological and biological processes, and how the damage caused by overwhelming life experiences can be reversed.
Gentle Path is a safe, nurturing community composed of peers where your journey of recovery will include not just dealing with outward behaviors but examining the underlying causes. The goal is to gain the courage to face difficult issues (including grief and loss), heal from emotional trauma, and become accountable for your feelings, behaviors, and recovery.
Taking that first step is hard, but there’s a new life of health and hope just waiting for you. The next chapter of your life can begin now, but only you can change your story.
