Stress Recovery – Diagnosis and Treatment 1-800-237-1068
If left undiagnosed and untreated, stress can become increasingly severe and life threatening. A recent article in USA Today discusses concerns with the increase in symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression and PTSD among U.S. Soldiers.
“Veteran groups argue that the failure of early detection and treatment allows mental illness to fester into problems so severe that a soldier must be discharged from the service.”
“The military is excellent at treating visible wounds,” says Joe Davis, a spokesman for Veterans of Foreign Wars. “The military and entire medical community at large still have a long way to go to effectively and reliably screen and treat wounds to the head and mind.”

Diagnosis and treatment can be a long and torturous experience for people suffering from stress-often taking years. Most medical and mental healthcare providers are not equipped with the specialized personnel and skills required to identify and treat stress related symptoms.
