The obstacles for the settings are discussed below.
First major problem is unwillingness of veterans to participate in the social group therapy. Despite of offering effective therapies to deal with PTSD, someone will not seek help. Another factor can be logistical problem. Getting to treatment might be difficult due to job schedule or transport options. Some veterans might feel shame or disgrace of seeking treatment for PTSD.
One of the symptoms of PTSD is fear and avoidance of people. That is one of the reasons that many veterans don’t seek help. The stigma attached to PTSD does not let veteran reach out for help. The fear of being labeled weak or unreliable impact their judgment to come forward. Trust is also a big factor. Veterans feel that only a person with military background can understand their feelings. Moreover, the location of social group therapy centers might not be easily accessible.

The social group therapy will also contain peer to peer counseling. They can relate to each other and focus on the problem. It’s the only way they can get into the society. I will try to help them in getting in homeless shelters until they find a decent home. A team of physiologists will be assigned to them.
Drugs like marijuana and cocaine can trigger neurons. These drugs chemical structure replicate that of a natural neurotransmitter.
