Dominion Hospital October 18, 2018

TraumaSci is available Monday – Friday for adults 18 and older.

Falls Church, VA (October 18, 2018) - Dominion Hospital is pleased to announce the launch of TraumaSci: Complex Trauma Disorders Program. The program is designed to help individuals 18 or older who have experienced not only single, but multiple traumatic events throughout their lifetime, cope with their experiences and achieve a higher quality of life throughout the healing process. 

Traumatic events can include a number of things, such as threatened death, serious injury and physical, sexual and emotional abuse. Effects of trauma on the individual can be complex, impacting their psychology, physiology and neurobiology, often times impairing or debilitating one’s ability to function. 

“Launching the TraumaSci program was a logical step for our team,” said Lee Higginbotham, CEO of Dominion Hospital. “As our community continues to grow so does the need for more personalized care for those struggling with mental health conditions. And, we are committed to ensuring that our community has access to the resources they need, when they need them.” 

The new TraumaSci: Complex Trauma Disorders Program at Dominion Hospital is launching as a Partial Hospitalization (PHP) Program, but an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and an Inpatient Program are also being planned for Adults who are suffering from the aftermath of traumatic experiences resulting in Posttraumatic and Dissociation Disorders. The TraumaSci Program integrates trauma and neuroscience-informed treatment within a therapeutic group framework. 

Key components of the program include:

  • Comprehensive intake assessment
  • Trauma focused group therapies
  • Expressive therapies
  • Resilience training
  • Therapeutic community
  • Active collaboration with outpatient providers. 

Offered at Dominion Hospital’s Adult PHP location near the main hospital campus, TraumaSci is available Monday – Friday for adults 18 and older.
