At Pyramid Healthcare, we have created our curriculum of veteran-first treatment modalities with you in mind. You’ll coordinate with one of our professional care providers before beginning treatment to together create a plan that addresses the areas of your life that are most important to you.

Using our process-based approach, evidence-based therapies are employed to offer a safe space for military veterans and their families to heal. We understand the unique needs of veterans and service members, and we work tirelessly to help you achieve the rest and recovery you deserve. Our safe, non-judgmental atmosphere allows you to embrace treatment in ways that create distance from stressors, triggers, and discomfort.

If you’re a veteran ready for relief, our programs were created for you.

Process-Based Therapies

Process-based therapies represent a core facet of our treatment approach. Structured, individualized treatment packages help address common struggles that veterans may face. Through targeted treatments like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), we help veterans successfully navigate challenges like suicidal ideation, emotional dysregulation and interpersonal issues.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Psychological challenges are often rooted in unhelpful thought patterns. These thought patterns can make mental health challenges even more difficult to manage, in the same way that difficult relationships can drive us toward self-doubt.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) emphasizes the importance of real, authentic relationships between your thoughts and feelings. CBT helps veterans of all ages address issues like substance use disorder, depression, anxiety, panic disorder, psychosis, personality disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as well as any grief, loss or trauma you may have experienced.

As part of a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs, CBT can help reframe the way you process thoughts. You’ll develop a better grasp on thought patterns and learn to optimize the way that thoughts become actions.

Alongside our clinically certified counselors, you’ll learn to restore relationships, refresh your sense of self-confidence and change unhelpful thought and behavioral patterns for the better.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Sometimes, feelings of doubt, guilt or resentment prevent us from sourcing the help we need. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) can help veterans challenge this tendency.

Through ACT, veterans can learn to reduce avoidance of stressors and instead face their pain and suffering to improve quality of life. Over time, ACT can help you develop psychological flexibility and reduce the feelings of distress you often experience when avoiding the greatest problems in your life.

ACT can help veterans address a wide variety of issues. Whether you’re experiencing addiction, obsessive-compulsive disorder, family tragedy, trauma or an eating disorder, ACT can help restore the control over your life that you deserve.

Working with our trained healthcare professionals, you’ll learn to address and embrace life’s difficult aspects, confronting reality and achieving positive outcomes.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Unhelpful behaviors and thought patterns can sometimes derail self-confidence, personal progress and even our own identity. Through dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), veterans of all ages can come to terms with the thoughts and actions that stand between them and progress toward a healthier life.

If you are a veteran who faces challenges like suicidal thoughts, borderline personality disorder, PTSD, bipolar disorder or substance use, DBT can help.

DBT helps veterans learn to confront the conflicting notions of acceptance and change. The goal of this treatment modality is to adapt your outlook to accommodate the change you want to experience. Four core principles can help you feel more in control of your own outcomes:

  1. Distress tolerance
  2. Emotion regulation
  3. Interpersonal effectiveness
  4. Core mindfulness

DBT empowers you to embrace the present moment and replace self-destructive behaviors with productive decisions leading to positive outcomes.

Our counseling team can help you embrace the present moment, while eliminating negative thoughts, to ultimately create, maintain or rebuild meaningful relationships.

Moral Injury Treatment

When a situation or event damages your moral conscience, moral injury may occur. Moral injury can happen any time a veteran witnesses, or fails to prevent, an event that goes against what he or she believes. Sometimes, these events can have lasting behavioral health effects.

Veterans of war are often at risk of experiencing moral injury, particularly if you or someone you know has participated in combat. Unlike PTSD, moral injury cannot be diagnosed medically. Rather, moral injury is more commonly identified by its symptoms. The following symptoms may indicate the presence of moral injury::

  • Avoidance — Veterans might avoid people, places, discussions or other situations that share characteristics with the event which caused moral injury
  • Reliving the injury — You might experience involuntary, painful memories, as though the event is occurring again
  • Substance abuse — Overuse of drugs, alcohol or other substances can represent an attempt to cope with issues that linger from past events
  • Negative emotions — Overwhelming feelings of guilt, shame, trauma or regret might exist as a result of experienced moral injury

Moral injury doesn’t need to control you. Our counseling team can help you achieve relief from major moral injury symptoms.

Trauma-Focused Programming

Many of our programs are trauma-focused. Each treatment modality we offer is geared toward helping veterans understand the ways that trauma may have impacted their emotional and physical well-being. This approach helps all veterans recognize the ways that trauma may have impacted their outlook, demeanor and the decisions they make on a daily basis.

The trauma-focused programming we offer can help you accomplish the following objectives:

  • Realize the impact of trauma on your life and understand associated paths toward recovery
  • Recognize the signs of trauma that might be present in your own life, and in the lives of your loved ones
  • Respond to the situation by seeking help and integrating trauma-focused best practices
  • Avoid re-traumatization through education and initiatives that help you own the life you live

Veterans who engage in trauma-focused treatment programming can experience a number of mental health benefits. You’ll learn positive coping mechanisms useful for combating triggers and decreasing the prevalence of trauma-related symptoms. In addition, you’ll learn healthy de-escalation practices to employ when the effects of trauma arise.
