Fort Hood PTSD Study Gives Hope for Faster Recovery

Written by Jeremy Schwartz

A recent Fort Hood-based study holds hope for a speedy recovery from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms — in as little as two weeks — for service members returning from combat.

Researchers say the study, which involved 370 active-duty service members seeking PTSD treatment, has already led to a Defense Department directive to make the treatment more available at its clinics on military installations across the country.
