Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a spiritual wound. That’s the contention of Chad Robichaux (Row-ba-show), a retired U.S. Marine who served eight tours of duty in Afghanistan. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Chad explains that his crippling panic attacks were God-sent, a way for his body to cope with trauma. Today, he counsels people with PTSD to recognize that medication should be a pitstop on the road to recovery, not the destination. The antidote is the peace of God through a relationship with Christ and solid biblical counseling which does not assign blame.

He is also the co-founder of Save Our Allies, a non-profit organization that focuses on the evacuation and recovery of Americans, our allies, and vulnerable people trapped in Afghanistan. Chad is a best-selling author and has written a number of books related to veteran care and overcoming life’s challenges. He has been featured on national news outlets and his biography, An Unfair Advantage, will soon be developed into a screenplay for a major motion picture. In addition to Chad’s military service, he has served our nation as a special agent with the U.S. Federal Air Marshal Service and the U.S. State Department as a surveillance detection senior program manager.
