The Traumatic and Operational Stress Services clinic at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth recently opened its "Back on Track" program to the fleet. The program is tailored for combat veterans who are struggling with mental traumas, with the goal of introducing patients to options to improve their daily lives. The program includes a two-week course taught by a wide array of hospital staff with more than 70 hours of class time. The topics range from anger management, physical fitness, stress management and problem solving to sleep hygiene, nutrition and relationships. The program is currently accepting more patients. For more information about the Back on Track program or to enroll, contact Bethany Swogger at (757) 953-6975.
