1: Dollars per vet
Does the average treatment cost come to about $10k per vet? How many are treated for the annual $4m budget?n And this is just home management, not actual PTSD, depression, or TBI treatment, correct?

Home Base treatment for veterans and families experiencing post traumatic stress, deployment-related stress or traumatic brain injury is comprehensive and evidence-based. At the Home Base outpatient clinic, veterans and families may receive: Evaluation and treatment for both PTSD and TBI; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; Prolonged Exposure Therapy; Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT); Cognitive Behavioral Con-joint Therapy for PTSD (Couples therapy for PTSD); relaxation and other therapies to treat PTSD and deployment stress related disorders; Pharmacotherapy Family counseling (individual, couples, child and adolescent treatment)and a support group for parents. In addition to clinical care, the annual Home Base budget covers the cost of our extensive clinical and community education activities and well as research.
