The success of treating PTSD by utilizing conventional pharmaceuticals and psychological therapeutics including CPT and other, has been described by Dr. Hoge as being under 30% in the military populations Hoge . In above quoted study, Dr. Hoge reported a very low compliance rate with conventional treatments as a large part of difficulty treating PTSD patients. The success rate of under 30% is dangerously low considering the acute need for successful treatments. Perhaps the most painful demonstration of urgency for successful PTSD treatments is the spiraling suicide rate. Dr. Kemp assessed suicide rates in United States veterans in the year 2010, by doing a retrospective review. Her findings were grim, approximately 22 veterans have taken their life in 2010, as per Dr. Kempâs Suicide Data Report, 2012, Department of Veterans Affairs Mental Health Services Suicide Prevention Program . In addition, this data is from 2010 and the suicide rate is continuing to increase. The US army has been actively trying to prevent suicides. In the course of US army search to prevent suicide escalation, it is becoming apparent that the suicide causes are due to multitude of interacting factorsâsuch as job and personal stress, psychiatric conditions, and brain injuriesâare contributing to a continuing epidemic of suicide among returning soldiers.
