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.
