The rehab I went to was really good. I went to Avery's House. It was welcoming, accepting, and they really do care about us. It was literally a house so it didn't feel like a hospital or treatment center at all. quote-icon

About 5% of American teens experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a prolonged stress response to a traumatic event. Most teens who experience trauma will not experience PTSD. However, left untreated, symptoms could last for years and severely interfere with your child’s life. Avery’s House is here to help teens recover.

Common PTSD symptoms in teens

Only a clinician or mental health professional can diagnose PTSD. Signs and symptoms of PTSD in teens can be described by their intrusive, avoidant, negative, and reactive nature. These symptoms can be expressed in the following ways:

  • Avoiding the event, including talking about it and the people involved
  • Increased irritation or anger, including outbursts
  • Flashbacks to the experience
  • Increased nightmares
  • Hypervigilance, always on alert or easily startled
  • Reduced interest in activities
  • Withdrawing from social settings

What causes PTSD in teens?

PTSD is complex and is caused by a combination of factors in addition to exposure to trauma. Risk is increased by already existing conditions. Many types of trauma can lead to PTSD in teens, including:

  • Being the victim of or witnessing violence or abuse
  • Natural disasters, such as hurricanes, floods, & tornados
  • Childhood trauma, abandonment, and neglect
  • Serious accident or injury
  • Losing a parent or loved one
  • Sexual assault
