Focus: Serving the Military, Veterans and Their Families
We are very proud of our Patriot Support Program, a national network of behavioral treatment centers, support staff and medical professionals who are dedicated to treating active duty members of the military, veterans and their families to help them cope with the emotional and psychological effects of combat, multiple deployments and separation.
The Patriot Support Program includes a comprehensive range that we offer in collaboration with the Department of Defense, Veterans Affairs and TRICARE®. In 2015, we treated more than 9,000 active duty service members, veterans and their families; and we worked with more than 160 military Installations and VA Hospitals across the US and overseas.
Specialty Care for Our Armed Forces
Our multidisciplinary team includes psychiatrists, physicians and clinicians that work closely with base personnel to help patients achieve treatment goals established by Military Command. Each facility has a dedicated Military Liaison who maintains appropriate and consistent communication with everyone involved in the plan of care.
Herschel Walker, Heisman trophy winner, professional athlete, businessman, and author, is the national spokesman for the Patriot Support Program. Herschel has broken free from his own shame related to mental illness and now provides emotional and motivational support to service members, veterans and military families by conducting public speaking engagements at military installations nationwide.
Patriot Support Centers of Excellence accommodate the military infrastructure with special amenities that include a streamlined admission process and special Command access. Treatment includes comprehensive medication management and focuses on reintegration, resiliency, post-traumatic growth and daily physical training.
