Can you suggest a program to deal with PTSD due to childhood

Resolved Question:

Can you suggest a program to deal with PTSD due to childhood abuse that is not addication based and that accepts insurance. I have repressed memories that are flashing back and although I am in therapy and on medication I don't know if I can do this slowely one hour at a time, one week at a time.
Thank you
