Summary An estimated 7.8% of all Americans will experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) at some point in their lives. Roughly 5.2 million people have PTSD during the course of a given year. And PTSD can affect anyone - from war veterans and abuse victims to persons directly or indirectly traumatized by other catastrophes including crime, natural disasters, and serious accidents.

Treatment may take the form of medication, pychotherpay, or alternative medicine. Wha.
