PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) Treatment

For many warriors, coming home to the Charleston, SC area does not mean that the battle is finished. The battle often continues – in hearts and minds, relationships and communities – after deployment. Vets, and their families and loved ones, strive to understand a life-changing experience that a service member may not want to remember, let alone talk about. Reintegrating to home, work, family and community can be arduous. Some find that memories can be even more disturbing than the actual experience, because what they once believed could touch them only on the battlefield has now followed them home. MUSC's Trauma Management Therapy (TMT) is available to all military personnel, regardless of service branch, who were deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan. If you are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, you may qualify to participate in this clinical research program. TMT is part of a multi-site study funded by the Department of Defense that uses Virtual-Reality Exposure Therapy. Between MUSC's Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and the Ralph Johnson VA Medical Center, there are over a dozen programs to manage PTSD. Get help dealing with fear, anger, nightmares or trouble sleeping, difficulty getting along with family after returning home from combat, and other issues.

Warriors ask for help.
