A life of service in the military puts individuals at greater risk for mental health disorders and co-occurring substance use disorders. Their jobs are often physically, emotionally, and mentally demanding, and they are frequently exposed to trauma with little to no opportunity to process it. Many veterans and active-duty service members feel a profound disconnect from their civilian friends, family, and peers who cannot fully relate to their experiences.
At Harmony Hills, our Heroes Program provides structured, supportive mental health treatment for veterans and active duty service members. Contact our team at 855.494.0357 to learn more about the benefits of comprehensive therapy designed to address the unique challenges faced by our servicemen and women and their families.
The Need for a Veteran Mental Health Treatment Program in Florida
Both active-duty military personnel and veterans face numerous challenges in transitioning back into civilian life. Finding healthy ways to manage the impacts of trauma is difficult without professional mental health treatment. The rates of depression, anxiety, PTSD, and suicide are significantly higher among military personnel than their civilian counterparts. Contributing factors include:
- Increased exposure to trauma
- Combat-related deaths of peers
- Inability to reconnect in civilian life
- Feeling isolated or misunderstood
- Relationship issues
- Chronic pain
- Housing, financial, and employment instability
When left untreated, these conditions can have long-lasting consequences for individuals and their families. Illicit drug use is prohibited in the military and can result in a dishonorable discharge. However, alcohol use is widely accepted, and many service members develop unhealthy patterns of drinking that carry over into their civilian lives. Co-occurring disorders present unique challenges to treatment that require integrated dual diagnosis treatment.
