Pharmaceuticals Are Not The Only Way to Treat PTSD In Veterans

We exist to provide public awareness, resources, and treatment options to our soldiers and their families who have been affected by the harsh realities of combat.

 

Get help by contacting our team, the donations provided by civilians and military alike power us to provide free anonymous treatment for Veterans suffering with PTSD.

All cases of PTSD are treatable

PTSD is not about what’s wrong with you, but about what happened to you.

PTSD Symptoms

To be diagnosed with PTSD, you must have symptoms for at least 1 month, PTSD symptoms include:
- Depression, thoughts of suicide
- On high-alert all the time, scanning for threats
- Forgetting important parts of, or unable to talk about, the event
- Emotional distance from people you were close to before
- Substance abuse

And more, your symptoms may cause you to self isolate. But you are not alone, the relief you need is closer than you think.

Non-Pharmaceuticals Options

Some of the drugs prescribed can be very powerful. More options can include;
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Anger Management
- Relaxation Techniques
- Psychotherapy
- Marital Therapy
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

And more. Because of the wide range of symptoms and other issues that go hand in hand with PTSD, a person who suffers from PTSD needs to be treated as a whole, not just for PTSD.

VA Treatment

Chad died of multiple drug toxicity, also known as CDI, or MDI. He had 12 different prescriptions including:
- Ambien
- Clonazepam / Klonopin
- Fluoxetine / Prozac
- Lorazepam / Ativan
- Propranolol

We believe that blindly throwing prescriptions at victims of PTSD and depression is a bad idea. There are many treatment methods that should be considered besides pills.
