Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Programs

PTSD is a serious, chronic condition that affects millions of people. Trauma, such as from combat, sexual assault, natural disasters, accidents, and other causes can lead to major impairments in a person’s ability to live their life fully.

The Salisbury VA Health Care System has three specialized programs that work with PTSD in male and female Veterans.

  1. Outpatient – The Military Sexual Trauma (MST) team serves male and female Veterans who experienced sexual trauma during their military service.
  2. Outpatient – The PTSD Clinical Team (PCT) serves Veterans diagnosed with PTSD from any trauma other than MST.
  3. Outpatient – The Virtual Intensive Outpatient Program for PTSD (VIOPP) is a six-week focused intervention for PTSD, serving Veterans remotely and virtually all over the country.
  4. Residential – The PTSD Residential Rehabilitation Treatment Program (RRTP) is a six-week in-house program for combat Veterans. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the PTSD-RRTP is currently closed. Contact the program for the latest information on the reopening process.

The National Center for PTSD, a part of the US Department of Veterans Affairs, leads the world in studying trauma including effective treatments for PTSD. If you or someone you know may be suffering from PTSD, please review the excellent materials available on the NCPTSD website:
