How Treatment at Bellwood Helped a Veteran Manage His PTSD


Michelle Levesque describes her husband’s crippling post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that he developed after sustaining psychological injuries during his military service. She says that sending him to the treatment program at Bellwood was life changing for both her husband and for the rest of the family. The program at Bellwood gave him the tools to manage his PTSD symptoms, allowing him to return to being an engaged family member and to do things like go out into crowded public places.
