Hi. I've a friend who is a police officer and has lost friends to PTSD. One of the programs he believes in, involves a trained dog. It helped a police officer who almost killed himself that my friend knew. I've another friend who trained to work with rape victims using art to treat their PTSD.

<-- Assuming that dogs get along with you.

I've heard some people, presumeably doctors, (in Canada, a doctor can prescribe it), believe that medical marijuana helps with "something" but I'm unsure if it is flashbacks. (Flashbacks are a side effect for regular marijuana users so maybe it doesn't). <-- Note - in keeping with rules of this forum, I'm only recommending this if a) it's legal in your state and b) if a doctor prescribes and c) if the same doctor doesn't have a better alternative.

I did try google and your health service has lots of information about several medications on this link. http://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/publi...et/index.shtml

Hugs if they are acceptable to you. Whatever your survived through be it work, violence or an accident, I hope you will beat it.
