Alternative Therapies for PTSD – Advancing Heroes Program – Arizona

Alternative Therapies for PTSD

Many Veterans suffer from PTSD, and many struggle to find ways to adjust to a “New Normal” and find a way to live a life with PTSD, not letting PTSD dictate how you live. We want to start showing a series of articles that examine some alternative ways to treat PTSD.]

While medications seem to be the predominant treatment method for PTSD, there are many other options, and most go unused or even unknown. We hope to start bringing you some alternatives for you to explore.

We will start in Arizona, an area that is rocked by the Phoenix VA Debacle, and shift to a story of a veteran who found his own treatment forms, and turned them into a program for all veterans.

The Advancing Heroes Program offered by Terros (www.terros.org) is a program that combones alternative therapies, including yoga, acupuncture, art therapy and equine therapy. Started by a Combat Medic Veteran who was looking for a better alternative to the VA’s treatment for PTSD, he developed a program, and pitched it to Terros Medical, who picked up the program. This is a 12-week program that seems to be helping Veterans in ways other traditional treatments have not.

We hope to bring more options for alternative treatment to all of you as we find them. If you know of any programs for alternative treatments for PTSD, please share it with us, so we may share it with all of our readers.
