If this catches on, I can see a whopping spike in reported cases of PTSD coming.

Lt. Col. Stanwick Hardcastle is not just the most popular psychiatrist at Womack Army Hospital because of his strong jaw, jet-black hair and piercing light blue eyes. He also happens to have earned a wide reputation as a strong supporter of prostitutes and hard drugs in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder.

“A lot of [my peers] and my bosses have trouble processing it,” said Hardcastle, in an exclusive interview with Duffel Blog. “But it makes sense if you step back from your initial revulsion and assess it rationally. What do our hurting soldiers, sailors and Marines who have PTSD seek out on their own? Sex and drugs, that’s what.”
[…]
Hardcastle’s professional peers and many senior Army officers have trouble accepting his admittedly outside-the-box form of therapy. Behind his back, detractors derisively refer to it as the “hookers and blow” therapy, and his own performance review for the last year expressed worry at his “rush to embrace untested, socially unpalatable therapies.”

    What, the dude came up with that treatment after having a vietnam war movie marathon?

    Because those same things have helped veterans cope with PTSD in the past, shees! It didn’t even work while deployed.

    This “reality avoidance is good, make drugs legal” thing is getting real old

      And on your left we have a dribbling dumbass who fell for a fake news article. Everyone point and laugh, folks!

          Back pedal faster pedo, reality is catching up with you. Although I am not sure you could tell the difference.

      Um, you know it’s Duffleblog, right?

      suggestion… read text first semantic then snytatic..

      ahh well maybe do both first..

      blowers and hook

  2. Grey Bird says:

    In case you don’t know, DuffleBlog is a parody news site. Like The Onion, but with a military bent.

  3. kerpow says:

    Pretty sure the guy they’re describing is Sterling Archer.

  4. What? The moth is always drawn to the flame? says:

    I would like to understand what the Military’s plan in for returning people to pre-murderous psychological state.

    The military trains people to murder people, then puts the trained people in the field to actually murder people, and then dumps the trained/actual murders on the street when they return home.

    And somehow we all expect everyone to be okay?

    There seems to be something missing in this process.

    • ± says:

      The “process” is for ex-soldiers to suck it the fuck up and not go all whiny and to become productive citizens as the veterans of WWII managed to do.

      Fuck, man; That release is going to require service pack 3, is it not??

    The Movie “MASH” brought that guy out of a coma by a blow job.

    I have always found sex to be kinda a “reset” for me psychologically. Good for what ails you, even if nothing is wrong.

    Drugs… I’ve only used beer and wine. No rebirth, it only makes me happy and that also is a good thing just within itself. I plan to do MJ when its legal. Brownies as I still want to keep my pink lungs pink. No needles ever. If/when I become terminal, I plan to take all kinds of shit. Why not? The cornucopia of life.

    To do list: collect shit to use later.

    Yea, verily.

    • Tim says:

      “”. Brownies as I still want to keep my pink lungs pink.

      You are still being a de3rp with what you assume to be reality — there is nothing more effective on this planet to clean your lungs out as a giant, cough, cough hit. — It is the best, natural, non-cancer or sudden death syndrom causeing, bronchiodialator and expetorant flow initiator that have ever discovered.

      The shit cleans your lungs out and lets you breath clean… I

      • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist and bucket list enthusiast says:

        Well Timmy, my lungs are not dirty and therefor don’t need any cleaning out. Nice and pink with the capacity and pressure capability of a man half my age. The medical community is in awe…. of my lungs. I wish it went further than that.

        Wifey’s blood pressure is so low she has to warn medical staff of that fact before she is tested otherwise they will call a code on her.

        We laugh together and assume its down to our healthy life style and active sex life.

        Ain’t that something?

        • Tim says:

          That is interesting. Of course, i’m making the very bold assumption that your wife is, in point of fact, not a hedgehog?

    • Tim says:

      And it does not make you just a little bit trepidatious now that you willingly choose to die prematurely, ignorant instead of longevity/happy/healthy/cost effective because it wards off chemtrails never smoked pot??? Sad. Do you work at the DMV??

      • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist and bucket list enthusiast says:

        I said “when terminal” so in the parlance of the Death with Dignity community, I am not foregoing life but rather shortening the dying process.

        Pros and Cons to all we do.

  6. ECA says:

    Making LIFE, seem more interesting and important, seems to take the mind off what happened. Once the mind is focused on BETTER THINGS, then let reality sink in..

    WHy use Manmade chemicals when nature has supplied you, with some of the best..

    • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist and bucket list enthusiast says:

      Usually purity, availability, and cost.

        How succinct. You should produce an infomercial — We’ll all get right, stay up all night, and watch.

  7. bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist and junior culture critic says:

    In related Broken News: that UCSB student killed 6 people because he couldn’t get laid.

    Seems to me the message is clear: we need sex ed/virginitiy cessation classes at all community colleges. Ivy League to be given 5 years lag time to figure out whether the sex card helps or hurts their maintaining prestige. Does seem clear that rolling in inherited dollar bills spilled onto a twin bed is a viable substitute for coming into contact with hoomans.

    A good Blow job, or even a bad one….. who knows what the beneficial ramifold effects would be?

    • Tim says:

      It was because Resperidol made him grow tits, bobbo. Sheesh, where have you been…realigning to msnbc on transponder 7?

      • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist and junior culture critic says:

        Made him grow tits huh?

        Where can I get some? ((The beer is working, it just is taking too long.))

        Say Timmy==heads up. I might easily no longer post here. Site has just gone to shit because of “management” whoever that is has lost interest and makes visiting here more often a dissappointment than a pleasure.

        If it turns around, I probably will too. Hard to find a site with intelligent posters such as DU.

        I’ll miss your take on things.

        • Tim says:

          Don’t go, bobbo. I’ll have nobody to put playsand on their sandwich at recess. I’d probably fall back into subtly insulting people whereby they mistake it for compliments — It might grow tiring picking on retards.

          Ahh, good scruffs. If I get bored, I can always google “what happens when we keep putting co2 into the atmosphere”…

          My vocabulary has expanded a little bit, here; At least, to know to be neurotic about hyphens and boiled okra.

          Well, since the other post was closed out…

          “”Every war story ever told is about how horrible and insane it is. Yet every 25 years, you get a whole new crop of “warriors” who want to go kill for their country, and a whole new crop of citizens willing to send them.

          from below the bar .. “”the script was a comment on Regan’s America and how the Military/Industrial Alliance combined with Fundamentalist Right Wing Churches tried to influence US politics.

          Hmm. where’s dallas, when you need him? He’d probably say it was a remake of Victor Victoria, anyways.
