Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Civilians can absolutely get treatment to PTSD. Usually trauma psychotherapists offer a systematic program to treat a patient with PTSD. Each psychotherapist may offer a different method of treatment depending on their own knowledge and the particular history of the patient.

Below I have pasted a link to a HER article that more deeply explains treatment for PTSD.
I hope that helps.
