Military Mental Health Program

We Appreciate Your Service

We believe when a military member serves our nation, his or her family serves alongside. River Crest Hospital treats the spectrum of difficulties affecting the whole person and the whole family, with special understanding of the unique stresses and problems of military and families. We salute your service, and we stand ready to help you if the need arises.

Post-Traumatic Stress and Mental Health Treatment

The River Crest Hospital Military program is designed to address the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in relation to traumatic events and stressors.

The evidence-based program at River Crest Hospital addresses military-specific issues with appropriate interventions and therapy. Moreover, the overall curriculum design is based upon the National Center for PTSD’s best practices.

While some patients experience post-traumatic stress, others struggle with depression, anxiety and adjustment disorders related to noncombat trauma, separation, grief/loss or reintegration issues.

River Crest individualizes the course of care to meet the treatment needs of each military patient. The goal for all service members is readiness to return to his or her duty station.
