Individuals who experience a life threatening event face unseen challenges that can cause stress and anxiety in their everyday lives. Whether a recent veteran returning home from combat or a family involved in a vehicle accident can face the challenges and headache brought on by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). These headaches and challenges that can arise after the traumatic event can not only be treated by the many different options such as therapy but they can also be relieved with a strong support system at home. Right now there is extensive research being done to help those who are suffering with this disorder. Since the beginning of the Iraq war an increase of study’s have taken place to further understand how to treat this disorder. Many are quick to turn to medication while other doctors take a different approach, there are a number of different options when it comes to the treatment of PTSD. Medication is not the best way to deal with PTSD nor should it be the first option in the treatment of this disorder. Medication will not solve the problems brought on by PTSD such as the neurological damage that has taken place.
