Therapy to military veterans, service members, guards, and reservists experiencing combat-related PTSD

Walter Reed is currently recruiting for a study in which they provide free evidence-based therapy to military veterans, service members, guards, and reservists experiencing combat-related PTSD.  The study is being conducted at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence on the campus of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda. 

All participants receive exposure therapy, which is the gold standard of treatment for PTSD. The study is comparing Prolonged Exposure to Virtual Reality Exposure (VRE) with or without cognitive enhancers.

Walter Reed is also offering two free functional MRI (brain scans) to assess recovery in those receiving VRE therapy, comparing them to healthy veterans, those with a history of blast exposure and those with PTSD receiving usual care.
