Trauma can take many forms, and one of the most personally devastating experiences you can encounter is when your sexual boundaries are violated. It would be wonderful if sexual abuse never happened. Sadly, experiences like assault, rape, molestation and sexual harassment are far too common. It may be difficult to talk about sexual abuse, but it’s important. Confronting your experience with a compassionate professional can bring understanding — and with understanding can come healing.
If you need help with trauma stemming from sexual abuse in any form, please know you are not alone. The Sanctuary at Sedona understands each person’s healing journey is unique, and we want to partner with you. Our holistic, integrative trauma treatment is personalized to your needs. It helps you process what you survived and transform your wounds into sources of strength. The Sanctuary at Sedona is a 30-Day minimum, residential, alternative, holistic sexual abuse treatment center.
Integrative Holistic Trauma Treatment for Sexual Abuse
Sexual abuse happens far more often than many people realize. Whether or not others would consider it a severe incident, most people have some kind of issue around their sexuality. This can result from non-consensual encounters, growing up in a home where sexuality is shamed, or internalizing cultural beliefs about our bodies and behaviors. Sexually based trauma majorly impacts how we see ourselves, other people, and the world around us.
At The Sanctuary, we understand from years of experience in treating addiction and mental health disorders that sexual trauma is often at the root of unwanted patterns. Unfortunately, the taboo that still surrounds this topic means that most people don’t talk about it, and it’s often buried deep in the shadows. We’re here to change that.
We recognize that a conscious relationship with your sexuality is essential to a happy, healthy life. That’s why we address this as a key component of our holistic treatment program. If you’re struggling with the trauma of sexual abuse, we can help by:
- Creating a safe environment for you to heal
- Examining beliefs you’ve built around your trauma
- Empowering you to come back into your body
- Restoring your connection with your spirit and life force
