The National Center for PTSD, located at the VA Boston Healthcare System, has programs to help veterans strengthen their personal relationships. Participation in the program is confidential and involves: weekly group meetings that last 2 hours each (for 10 or 12 weeks, depending on the group) and 3 or 4 visits for 2-3 hours each to fill out questionnaires. Participants will be paid for their time.

The Strength at Home programs are for veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. One program is for male veterans, the other for couples.

The Strength At Home programs' vision is to disseminate evidence-based treatments for relationship strengthening and violence prevention for military couples, and to reduce and end domestic violence in intimate relationship partners.
