My son was a combat Marine, serving tours in Fallujah and Ramadi, and currently suffers PTSD, and alcohol dependency. He admitted himself to 3 Rivers, having been unable to negotiate the hurdles to receiving care at the VA. As a parent and retired psychologist, I believe I have a reasonable idea regarding the etiology of my son\'s pathologies.
The six day course of \"evaluation\" and \"treatment\" at 3 Rivers exposed nothing short of incompetence and malpractice in my opinion. He was abruptly diagnosed with a severe mood disorder, had his current medication regimen stopped, completely changed, and then abruptly reversed 48 hours later, and was discharged with little more than an outdated list of AA meetings and a referral to the VA. He would have been clinically better off spending a week in a homeless shelter.
