Trauma-Informed Care

It is not suprising that virtually everyone who is struggling with mental illness and/or Substance use Disorder has experiences some form of profound trauma in their lives.

At Reno Behavioral Healthcare Hospital, we recognize that people struggling with mental illness and addiction can be extremely vulnerable. That's why we provide "Trauma-Informed Care" best practices that promote a culture of safety, healing and empowerment.

Our approach is to address a patient's underlying trauma to get to the root of their challenges. Trauma-Informed Care is embedded in all that we do.

Trauma-Informed Care Best Practices

All of our programs are consistent with Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) trauma-informed best practices:

  • Realize the widespread impact of trauma and understand potential paths for recovery
  • Recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma in patients, familes and loved ones
  • Respond by fully integrating trauma knowledge into policies, procedures & practices
  • Seek to actively resist "Re-traumatization"
