Nice article BUT it states MUST BE REFERRED BY THE VA which means there are many vets who are not recognized by the VA for PTSD and this retreat is only dressing on the wound. There are many vets who live in fear of even talking about this because they are trying to forget in their own mind and don't want these horrors brought up again. Teaching these men to 'adjust' to the 'norms' of every day life is the accomplishment here. Just open the newspaper in the morning and tell me what you 'feel' when you are angered by something you read. Tell me about the divorce rate, or raising children when you come home to 'adjust'. There is a lot of hidden anger and 'adjusting' to these changing times is NOT an easy thing to do for these vets. Try finding a job, especially when someone want to talk about 'what was it like over there'?
Look at these issues that a vet has to adjust to?
Stay strong brothers/sisters and learn to survive in the NOW.
