“Generations of veterans have returned from conflict and had difficulties adjusting to civilian life. They remained silent about the experiences of war and repressed the memories of death, violence, and moral injury. We now know the dangers of repressing these memories and leaving PTSD untreated. The Road Home Program envelops veterans and their families with a multi-disciplinary treatment team so they can confront their traumatic memories using evidenced-based treatment and adjunct therapies in a supportive environment. Healing begins here and continues when veterans return home.”
