Review says DoD not doing enough to treat war fighters' PTSD
Monday - 7/16/2012, 8:57am EDT
First, not nearly enough of eligible war fighters are receiving treatment. And second, DOD doesn't have enough information to know whether the treatment it does deliver is effective.
Marine Corps Times reported the review was conducted by the Institute of Medicine. It found fewer than half of all service members and veterans who screen positive for PTSD, even receive referrals for care. The Institute said follow-up procedures don't give up enough information to tell whether those who received treatment actually got well.
