Greenleaf Behavioral Health Hospital offers the H.E.R.O. (Honor, Empower, Restore, Overcome) program for active-duty military members and veterans who need support for trauma-related mental health and substance use disorders. This specialty inpatient track addresses the unique needs of individuals who are currently serving in the military or have had military careers.
The H.E.R.O. program provides an acute level of care for individuals whose symptoms have become so disruptive that they are unable to function in their day-to-day lives. You or your loved one will receive round-the-clock monitoring and evidence-based care provided by a multidisciplinary team that is experienced in helping veterans and members of the military learn to manage the symptoms they’ve been struggling with.
There’s no single way to heal from the effects of trauma, so your recovery journey will begin with a detailed assessment so that we can gain a better understanding of your specific needs. Based on that assessment, your personalized care plan may include elements of:
- Group and individual therapies
- Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
- Recreational and music therapies
- Equine therapy
- Community-based outings
- Daily physical training and yoga
Our initial goal is to help you achieve stabilization, but we will also empower you to continue your progress at a lower level of care so that you experience recovery that lasts well beyond your time at our hospital in Valdosta, Georgia.
Get information about the benefits of our inpatient program for military members and veterans at Greenleaf Behavioral Health Hospital in Valdosta, GA
Many people who have served in the military have experienced a traumatic event at least once during their career, while some members of the military face traumatic situations regularly. Service members are often confronted with natural disasters, injuries, deaths, threats to their lives, and threats to the lives of people close to them. And they typically have very little time to process the emotions behind those experiences before facing the next threatening situation.
When you choose the H.E.R.O. program at Greenleaf Behavioral Health Hospital in Valdosta, Georgia, you benefit from programming designed with the specific needs of veterans and members of the military in mind. Group therapy is a crucial component of this program, allowing you to connect with others who have shared similar experiences so that you can hear their perspectives, exchange stories, and see that you are not alone in your recovery journey.
We also understand just how difficult it can be to verbally communicate the emotions tied to the traumatic events you’ve experienced. This specialty program offers interventions that can help you find ways to express those feelings and start to process the effects of trauma, such as EMDR, music therapy, recreational therapy, and equine therapy.
By taking part in this specialized program, you can begin to regain control of the symptoms that have disrupted your day-to-day life.
