There are many known treatment options for PTSD. CBT therapy, EMDR, and other therapies.

Thanks for that! I think that my brother thinks that the VA is his only option. He has not improved at all for a very long period of time. He's very secretive and it's hard to get info out of him. So, I don't know if it's the quality of care from the VA or he's just the way he is and he's treatment resistant.

Your second post really hit home as both my brother and I were the victims of extreme physical abuse at the hands of my father. I'm going to see if I can talk to him about EMDR as I'm doing that therapy with some successs for my PTSD.
