Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

What is post-traumatic stress disorder?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can develop after you experience a traumatizing or terrifying situation or event. The symptoms of PTSD typically start within a month of the event, but they can also appear years later.

Many people with PTSD experience symptoms like:

  • Flashbacks
  • Nightmares
  • Severe anxiety
  • Persistent depression
  • Being easily startled or scared
  • Intrusive, uncontrollable thoughts

These symptoms can interfere with your ability to work or engage in your usual routine. The side effects of PTSD can also disrupt your sleep patterns and make it difficult for you to go out socially or be involved in certain activities.

How do I know if I qualify for a clinical trial for PTSD?

To access your overall health and the severity of your post-traumatic stress disorder, Dr. Brown and the psychiatric team at Community Clinical Research offer comprehensive psychiatric assessment services.

The staff uses the latest diagnostic testing technologies to assess your candidacy for participating in outpatient clinical trials.

After a full evaluation of your condition, the Community Clinical Research team can recommend whether you will benefit from participation in a PTSD clinical trial.

What is involved in clinical trials for PTSD?

The staff offers PTSD clinical trials on an outpatient basis. The purpose of these trials is to identify medications and treatment alternatives for the short-term and long-term management of PTSD symptoms.

The team of licensed mental health experts closely monitors your treatment and your general health, tracking the progress of your therapy. They also collect vital information about the results of the trial throughout your treatment.

Your health and safety are a top priority for the medical team at Community Clinical Research, and they customize your care to your needs.

Outpatient trials are at no cost to the patient and include your initial psychiatric assessment and necessary follow-up visits. You also have access to staff recommendations for continued treatment with community health professionals and other resources after the trial is complete.
