The Indianapolis VA does NOT have an adequate inpatient program for PTSD. They need another area that can solely focus on PTSD and treatment for those with it. If there was such a program, perhaps my husband wouldn't have been sent home for a second time only 24 hours after being admitted as an inpatient. The issue is that the staff doesn't consider him a danger, so he is discharged. Despite the fact that he has continued on a downward spiral and his perception of reality is not accurate. He has attempted suicide and started self-mutilation...the doctors refuse to change the medications which clearly are not working because he continues to become more withdrawn and out of it.
