Published by

 

PTSD is an issue that many veterans struggle with. Every veteran either has some degree of PTSD themselves or has a close buddy who suffers from it. Here are the latest developments and news about PTSD treatment.

VA Releases Online Tool to Help Deal With PTSD

The Veterans Affairs has recently released a new online tool that is designed to help returning military personnel deal with the effects of PTSD. The tool, called PTSD Treatment Decision Aid, has a lot of information, videos, and presentations about various treatments for PTSD, such as talk therapy. Users can also build charts to compare the various treatments to help them decide which one they prefer.

Colorado Approves PTSD for Medical Cannabis Treatment

Governor John Hickenlooper has recently approved PTSD as a condition that qualifies for treatment with medical cannabis. It is the first condition to be approved for cannabis treatment in Colorado since 2001. Nineteen other states have already approved PTSD as a qualifying condition.

Research Into Effects of Service Dogs on PTSD

Researchers at Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine’s Center for the Human Animal Bond are conducting a new clinical research study to find out what effects service dogs have on veterans suffering from PTSD. It’s been suggested that bonding with dogs can produce positive emotional reactions which can help people deal with PTSD. The new study was created to discover exactly how and which PTSD symptoms are affected by service dogs. The study is being done in partnership with K9s for Warriors.
