On Monday EMDRIA President, Sharon Rollins, and EMDRIA Executive Director, Scott Blech, sent a letter to Army Brig. General Sutton, M.D., regarding EMDR and the treatment of active duty military and veterans.
As most of you know, EMDRIA has been working dilligently to increase the awareness of EMDR’s effectiveness in treating Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder among the officials in the Military, Government, Insurance Agencies and Veterans Administration. This particular letter asks General Sutton to remove the restrictions and exclusions against EMDR treatment put in place by TRICARE, the Department of Defense and Veterans Administration.
