Contact information for the Transcend program Drs. Bev Donovan and Edgardo Padin-Rivera,

15 Aug

Contact information for the Transcend program of Drs. Bev Donovan and Edgardo Padin-Rivera, at the Brecksville, OH V.A. hospital.

Drs. Bev Donovan and Edgardo Padin-Rivera, at the Brecksville, OH V.A. hospital, just completed analyzing their research on 48 subjects, showing that their wonderful Transcend program is getting astonishing results with their population of dual diagnosis (substance abuse plus post traumatic stress disorder) Vietnam vets. A full 12 months out of this intensive, multi-modal 12-week program, 85% of their guys aren’t just still clean and sober, but their PTSD symptoms are continuing to improve. This is dramatically different from the usual decline in efficacy a few weeks or months after a typical treatment program.

The Transcend program has its own manual and so the design can be replicated by anyone who wants to implement a good PTSD program, for any population, not just combat vets. Sure, it’s labor-intensive, but it’s also hugely efficacious, even for the most tenaciously troubled population, and ultimately, of course, it’s a cost-saver. It’s also all spelled out in this very clear and beautifully designed manual. You can learn more about it or purchase the manual by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

The purchase price will help support the continuing viability of the Transcend program, and pay for things like a cohort’s final trip, at the end of the program, to the Memorial on the Mall in Washington DC.
