Another Combat PTSD Headline Busted!

The Headline: New PTSD study shows promise of faster recovery
KVIA ABC News 7 

The Claim
Last month, researchers released the results of a three-year study of "cognitive processing therapy" at Fort Hood. According to the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs, CPT is a 12-session psychotherapy that teaches patients how to evaluate and change upsetting thoughts since experiencing trauma. Sessions can be done individually or in groups of 6-10 people and last 60 to 90 minutes each.

And how much does it cost? Just an idea on this
SAN ANTONIO (March 19, 2008)—A $33 million research program—the largest ever undertaken to help our courageous armed forces personnel cope with combat-related traumatic stress—will likely ensure better detection, prevention and treatment of traumatic stress’s often-devastating effects and improve countless lives, study leaders said today at a press conference at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.

The research program is supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) as part of $450 million the U.S. Congress allocated in 2007 to address the issue of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The DoD Peer-Review Medical Research Program awarded the grant.

DoD, VA approve $45 million to fund the Consortium to Alleviate PTSD

Award to be managed by the UT Health Science Center San Antonio and the VA National Center for PTSD, leaders of the national PTSD research consortium

SAN ANTONIO (Aug. 12, 2013) — In an unprecedented show of support for our nation's wounded warriors, the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs have agreed to provide approximately $45 million over five years for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) research to advance PTSD diagnosis, prevention and treatment for service members and veterans. The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and the VA National Center for PTSD lead the consortium, announced over the weekend by the White House and DoD and VA officials.

The Consortium to Alleviate PTSD (CAP) will provide an array of cutting-edge clinical treatment trials and biological studies for active military and veterans with PTSD and related conditions, said CAP Consortium Director Alan L. Peterson, Ph.D., professor of psychiatry in the School of Medicine at the UT Health Science Center San Antonio. The consortium's initiatives will include efforts to learn more about the biology/physiology of PTSD development and treatment response to inform diagnosis, prediction of disease outcome, and new or improved treatment methods.

Maybe the DOD and the VA should ask for their money back?
