A new sleep clinic opened in Albuquerque Friday with the sole aim of helping people who suffer from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder.

"Most people with PTSD have insomnia and nightmares. It's almost a given," said Dr. Barry Krakow of the Maimonides Sleep Center.

The effects are devastating for them and others.

"Parasomnia conditions, very disruptive sleep" are common, said Krakow. "They could actually act out their dreams and move around and hurt somebody."

Krakow said he's been treating people with sleeping problems for years, helping them with their nightmares. Recently he's seen a growing problem.

"There clearly is a rise, or at least an awareness of PTSD that's growing in the community," Krakow said.

Friday he unveiled a new PTSD sleep clinic.
