Sponsors of legislation dealing with alternative treatments to veterans suffering from PTSD are asking the Senate Human Services Committee to return funding to the bill.
The House Appropriations removed the $1.5 million in the bill and changed it to a study.
Representative Ron Gruggisberg says it's time to act.
He says he believes medicine is relied on too heavily to treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder where alternative methods of healing like Yoga can be used.
Jan Nelson provides mind and body medicine to treat PTSD and other neurological problems.
"Most everything we use is evidence based. It's used at centers already around the United States, it's just that they aren't here in North Dakota. They use this at the VA in Minneapolis and it is very successful. In fact they have an 80% rate of improvement," says Jan Nelson of Heartsprings.
Twenty-four North Dakota National Guard active duty soldiers have died by suicide since 2001.
200 veterans have died by suicide in the state in the last decade.
