Our team can tell you more about our treatment programs, amenities, and more.

The brave men and women who serve in the United States Armed Forces put their lives on the line each day in the service of our country. In devoting themselves to the defense of our freedom, veterans may also put their mental health at risk. In fact, veterans and members of the military are at a notably higher risk of developing mental health conditions due to the immense strain that their jobs put on them mentally, physically, and emotionally. The Heroes Program at Harmony Hills provides structured therapy for those who have served or are serving in the military to help them navigate their mental health issues in a residential setting. To learn more about the mental health treatment options available, please contact Harmony Hills today at 855.494.0357.

Most Common Treatment Needs at Our Heroes Program

We provide support for a wide array of mental health issues. However, there are common issues that our veteran guests often face.

PTSD

One of the most common challenges for those in the military is post-traumatic stress disorder. Roughly 17% of those serving in active combat will return with some form of PTSD. With evidence-based treatment options, we can address this challenging condition and help veterans learn to manage their symptoms. Some symptoms of PTSD are:

  • Intrusive memories
  • Avoidance
  • Negative changes in thinking and mood
  • Irritability
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Difficulty with concentration
  • Guilty or shameful feelings

Depression

Depression is also a common problem that veterans face. This mood disorder can impact the way a person behaves, feels, and thinks. Depression can be due to genetics, chemical imbalances, or environmental factors. Veterans may be at a higher chance of developing depressive symptoms, such as:

  • Intense, pervasive sadness or hopelessness
  • Changes in sleeping or eating patterns
  • Body aches or pain
  • Loss of interest in usual hobbies
  • Social isolation

Depression can lead to suicidal thoughts or actions. If someone is suffering from suicidal thoughts, it is critical to seek mental health treatment immediately.

Co-Occurring Disorders

Mental health disorders can often lead individuals to turn to drugs and alcohol as a method of coping. A significant number of military members suffer from alcohol abuse or opioid addiction. When mental health conditions and addiction co-occur, it is best to seek treatment of both disorders simultaneously.

What Type of Mental Health Treatments Are Available?

Harmony Hills provides a safe and dignified environment in which our veteran guests can seek treatment tailored specifically to their needs. We recognize that members of our military are facing unique challenges. However, we also know that these individuals are resilient, and they have the ability to acquire the skills that they need to overcome their challenges with the proper support. At Harmony Hills, we provide the specialized treatment our military service members need to recover. Our treatment options include:

  • Trauma release
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical behavior therapy
  • Somatic bodywork
  • EMDR therapy

In addition to these, we also offer trauma-releasing exercises. These innovative and simple activities can assist veterans’ bodies in releasing deep muscular patterns related to trauma, tension, and stress. Through this treatment, it is possible to calm the nervous system and release muscle tension in a safe and controlled environment. As a result, their bodies can return to a peaceful balance. These exercises significantly support the needs of the veterans we serve.

Most Common Treatment Needs in Our Heroes Program

We provide support for a wide array of mental health issues. However, there are common issues that our veteran guests often face.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-traumatic stress disorder is one of the most common mental health concerns among veterans. When the body undergoes a traumatic event, the brain releases chemicals like adrenaline that help the body fight, flee, or feign being dead. In dangerous situations, this helps us save our lives and the lives of others. Unfortunately, if the chemicals made during a traumatic event aren’t metabolized, a person may experience PTSD. The prolonged stress and reoccurrence of trauma result in increased instances of PTSD among men and women of service.

We can address this challenging condition and help veterans learn to manage their symptoms with evidence-based treatment options. Some symptoms of PTSD are:

  • Intrusive memories
  • Re-experiencing
  • Avoidance
  • Negative changes in mood
  • Cognition issues including dissociation and mental processing issues
  • Irritability
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Difficulty with concentration
  • Guilty or shameful feelings

Trauma-informed therapy can help reduce PTSD triggers, aggression, and depression. Studies show pairing traditional behavioral therapies with alternative therapies can help reduce PTSD symptoms and release stored trauma.

Depression

Depression is also a common problem that veterans face. This mood disorder can impact the way a person behaves, feels, and thinks. Depression can be due to genetics, chemical imbalances, or environmental factors. Veterans may be at a higher chance of developing depressive symptoms, such as:

  • Intense, pervasive sadness or hopelessness
  • Changes in sleeping or eating patterns
  • Body aches or pain
  • Loss of interest in usual hobbies
  • Social isolation

Depression can lead to suicidal thoughts or actions. If someone is suffering from suicidal thoughts, it is critical to seek mental health treatment immediately.

Co-Occurring Disorders

Mental health disorders can often lead individuals to turn to drugs and alcohol as a method of coping. A significant number of veterans and active-duty members of the military suffer from alcohol abuse or opioid addiction. When mental health conditions and addiction co-occur, it is best to treat both disorders simultaneously, which is precisely our approach at Harmony Hills.
