The South Texas Research Organizational Network Guiding Studies on Trauma and Resilience, or STRONG STAR, is a multidisciplinary and multi-institutional research consortium funded by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to develop and evaluate the most effective early interventions possible for the detection, prevention, and treatment of combat–related posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in active–duty military personnel and recently discharged veterans.
Under the leadership of The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, the STRONG STAR Consortium brings together the expertise of a world–class team of military, civilian and VA institutions and investigators from across the country, unifying the critical mass of talent required to make significant advances in PTSD research and to develop and deliver PTSD treatment programs that are relevant, effective and feasible in a military setting.
STRONG STAR is currently conducting three clinical treatment trials at Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center (CRDAMC). The studies are examining the effectiveness of Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT–i) with active duty service members. Treatments are offered in individual, group, and online formats, and last from two to eight weeks. Study participants must be active duty service members who will remain in the Ft Hood area for at least 3–4 months to complete initial assessments and treatment programs. Referrals to the treatment studies can be made through a behavioral health provider or through self–referral. For more information, please call (254) 288-1638 or stop by the STRONG STAR office in the CRDAMC lobby. Please review the STRONG STAR website (www.strongstar.org) for more information about the studies at Ft Hood.
