Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
One of the central characteristics of armed conflict is “loss of control.” Combat may rank second only to death in terms of experiencing a loss of control. Many of us, in the midst of a fire fight, have implored God to, “Please get me out of here!” Even if we escape without a scratch, the specter of impending disaster may haunt us for years, invading our thoughts, causing an unwanted emotional response and disrupting our lives.
Beyond counseling and traditional treatment avenues, CVI helps those afflicted with PTSD re-establish a feeling of control over their lives through innovative initiatives like our Organic Therapy Program. Gardening rewards control, particularly self-control, plus it breeds success. Planting a seed is an investment in the future.
