At Soldier Center we are committed to providing effective treatment to our military personnel and veterans in a timely manner. The staff at Soldier Center (and EMDR clinicians throughout the world) are available if you, or someone you know, is impacted by unresolved problems related combat deployments and other difficult life experiences. EMDR is listed as one of the three effective treatments for adult trauma by the VA/DOD Clinical Practice Guidelines (2010).
On this page we list comments made by our former clients at Soldier Center who want you to know about the effectiveness of EMDR. They share their comments in order for others to know there is effective treatment. You can locate EMDR therapists throughout the U.S. at www.EMDR.com and www.EMDRIA.org. Some of our clients have been so impressed with their EMDR treatment they wanted to share their story so other can know there is help - you are invited to listen to the video below:

OIF Veteran discusses his life-changing treatment with EMDR
The best measure of treatment effectiveness is wheter or not the veteran improves. When the treatment is effective both the veteran and family members notice.
Here is the testimony of an OIF veteran diagnosed with PTSD who came for treatment after being treated in other programs.
