I am a psychiatrist and the medical director of the Road Home Program, which is the Center for Veterans and Their Families. At the Center, we treat what are termed the invisible wounds of war, which are often the illnesses — mostly psychiatric or neurological — that prevent people from really having a fulfilling life, so post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, military sexual trauma.
Our care model at the Road Home Program really depends on the individual case. So sometimes we get the veteran coming in first. Sometimes we get the spouse coming in first, or the partner. So oftentimes we’ll do individual work before we do group work or family work or couple’s work. So we have capacity to do all of those things, it just really depends on the individual situation. The amazing thing is if you take care of the family, oftentimes the veteran gets better faster than if you just focus on the veteran alone.
