Treatment for Military and First Responders
We have a dedicated Uniformed Services Unit, created specifically for the military and first responders, including police, firefighters and EMTs. We also have a 28-Day Chemical Dependency Program for those seeking to overcome addiction.
Each person’s treatment is overseen by a team of licensed mental health professionals including psychiatrists, clinical social workers, master’s prepared licensed counselors, certified recreational therapists and psychiatric nurses. Treatment is designed to provide security and structure while simultaneously finding crisis resolution, developing self-awareness, learning coping skills, improving social skills and promoting patient responsibility and autonomy.
The goal of treatment is to teach patients to better manage their emotions, resolve grief over past traumas, express feelings, improve relationships and live their lives with purpose, direction and fulfillment.
