What are the benefits of the In Their Own Words study?

While there is a lot of research about effective treatments for PTSD, we know very little about what factors contribute to a veteran choosing or sticking with a particular treatment. Many choose not to come for treatment. This critical information can help us to understand how treatment can better meet the needs of veterans.
