An Innovative Plan To Treat PTSD

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is often a debilitating problem requiring extensive treatment in order to bring it to resolution.  This is true regardless of whether the trauma is related to a physical, emotional and/or sexual event.  Rapid resolution of such a problem is seen as crucial in terms of assisting the individual in resolving the traumatic symptoms and facilitating a return to one’s normal life and routines of daily living.

Traditional verbal psychotherapy procedures, while potentially effective, can take extended periods of time in order to bring the trauma to a complete and permanent resolution.  During this time period, the individual’s day-to-day living is often markedly disrupted, or even brought to a complete “stand still.”

Dr. Albert Zbik is now offering an innovative alternative in providing unlimited treatment for a fixed fee in which the treatment sessions are provided in what we refer to as “Marathon” sessions.  Patients can be scheduled for extended appointments on a single day with the goal of resolving the trauma as quickly as possible.  Whether the patient is seen for one hour or 50 hours, the fee for the service is fixed.  Since such an approach cannot be charged to the benefits of any health insurance plan, the fee for such services must be an out-of-pocket expense.

For further information about resolving PTSD in a rapid, effective and cost-contained manner, feel free to contact Dr. Albert Zbik at 954-385-4696.
