Invisible Scars: How to Treat Combat Stress and PTSD without Medication
Everyday approximately 22 veteran suicides occur with many of them using or having used mind altering psychiatric medications, prescribed for residual effects of combat stress, such as PTSD.
Unfortunately, for well over a decade, the military and VA has had a policy of treating combat related stress problems with psychiatric medications, which have a host of Black Box side effects, including suicide, homicide, anger, hostility, poor judgment, etc.
Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) is a normal human reaction to what can be considered abnormal situations. The 'D' (Disorder) is added to PTS when the soldier or veteran can't return to normal functioning.
In this tell all book, Dr. Billings chronicles the VA & the Militarys decision to use brain/mind altering medications for residual effects of combat stress, why they do it, the effects on veterans/soldiers, and how new integrative treatment programs are now helping military veterans return to normal, healthy lives, without brain/mind altering psychiatric medications.
Leading the call for a more intelligent, more effective and humane treatment is Bart P. Billings, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist, retired enlisted soldier, and Medical Service Corps officer (USA retired - 34 yrs.). He has successfully treated hundreds of soldiers with combat stress reactions and PTSD without psychiatric medications.
Dr. Billings is also the Director/Founder of the International Military & Civilian Combat Stress Conference, the longest running conference of its type in the world and developer of the Human Assistance Rapid Response Team (HARRT)readiness program, which helps soldiers and their families prepare for the stress and challenges of deployment. The HARRT readiness questionnaire is included in this book.
This book is a must read for anyone who knows or treats those with combat stress related problems, such as, PTS, PTSD, or TBI.
Praise for Invisible Scars:
If we had read your book about the dangers of the drugs that the VA gave our son to treat PTSD, I am positive that he would be alive today. The cocktail of drugs given our son killed him. Since his death, we have been on a mission to help other veterans obtain drug free treatments for PTSD.
Stan and Shirley White (Marine Corps parents)
As much as we may wish for an elixir of drugs that could magically heal mental health disorders, there is none. And the side effects are often much worse than the cure. Dr. Billings has done yeoman service by underscoring this reality, as well as the grim dangers that result when we rely on psychoactive drugs as a curative. We owe him a thank you!"

Decades later, sustained by her work, a second marriage, and a son, Cregan reflects on this pivotal experience and attempts to make sense of it. She weaves together literature and research with details from her own ordealand the still visible scar of her suicide attemptwhile also considering her life as part of the larger history of our understanding of depression. In fearless, candid prose, Cregan examines her psychotherapy alongside early treatments of melancholia, weighs the benefits of shock treatment against its terrifying pop culture depictions, explores the controversy around antidepressants and how little we know about themeven as she acknowledges that the medication saved her lifeand sifts through the history of the hospital where her recovery began.
Perceptive, intimate, and elegantly written, The Scar vividly depicts the pain and ongoing stigma of clinical depression, giving greater insight into its management and offering hope for those who are suffering.

It is said scars make us stronger - but the truth is, life can be hard. But with ScarOut! you get up to 4 Months continuous scar reduction and that strength you were looking for.
Why Do Doctors Recommend Silicone Gel Sheeting (SGS), like ScarOut!
Silicone Gel Sheeting (SGS) has been used to treat scars for more than 30 years, and largely remains the first clinical recommendation for scar management.
Scars are thick levels of collagen that form after injury. During stage-2 of skin repair, water is lost causing dehydration. This signals cells to release collagen, forming that thick ugly scar tissue you're struggling to love. But when SGS is applied - like ScarOut! - it normalizes hydration and blocks the thick collagen buildup.
... So scars are flatter, lighter and smoother.
C-Section, Keloid, Knee Surgery and more - ScarOut! Loves Scars.
ScarOut! gives you 2-4 months continuous scar treatment with 4 reusable silicone gel sheets. This is the same medical-grade Silicone as seen in SGS studies and used in hospitals around the world. Not only is it extra-adhesive, but ultra-hydrating too.
