Alexandria Bay’s River Hospital and VETS Peer-to-Peer Outreach Center, Watertown, will receive a total of $185,000 in special state funding to support post-traumatic stress disorder treatment programs, according state Sen. Patricia A. Ritchie.

Sen. Ritchie, R-Heuvelton, secured the same amount last year that was split between the outreach center’s PFC Joseph Dwyer Peer Support Program for Veterans and River Hospital’s River Community Wellness Program.

“Many troops who have served in combat zones return with wounds we cannot see and as a result, struggle with PTSD as they try to re-acclimate themselves with life at home,” she said in a news release Tuesday. “It’s critical that we provide support to those returning soldiers.”
