Veteran Mental Health Treatment

Adjusting to civilian life outside of the structured and goal-oriented daily routines of the military can create disconnection from life and loved ones, increasing chances of anxiety and mental health issues in veterans. Additionally, anxiety in veterans can develop as a byproduct of the hyper-vigilance required during active deployment, during the transition back to civilian life, or as a symptom of co-occurring disorders within particular circumstances, such as managing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and chronic pain while finding civilian employment. Veterans are also at increased risk of loneliness and isolation, suicide and suicide ideation and depression.

Trauma-focused mental health treatment for veterans

Veterans often come to treatment feeling isolated, fragile and fearful. Trauma is so frequently at the core of their struggles with mental health, resulting in a tendency to feel on edge and unsafe in any setting.

For veterans suffering from PTSD, creating safety is the first step to recovery. Our programming creates an atmosphere any veteran can feel comfortable in, which begins with his or her initial encounters with the program staff, with their peers in treatment and their overall experience within the treatment environment.

Our behavioral health treatment curriculum includes:

  • Phase 1 trauma stabilization and building coping skills
  • Addressing moral injury through acceptance techniques and redefining valued living and well-being
  • Utilizing polyvagal theory to reprogram the autonomic nervous system and “fight vs. flight” responses
