We deliver the most effective outreach and treatment to those suffering from combat stress, trauma, homelessness and other invisible wounds of war and military service, and we work to complement existing military care providers such as the Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense.
We are part of Centerstone, one of the nation’s largest providers of behavioral healthcare. Centerstone has outpatient clinics across Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee, and an extensive national provider network with more than 400 physicians and counselors. It also operates a national research institute that uses research, analytics and technology to bring about innovations in clinical care.
WHY WE’RE NEEDED
We serve anyone whose life has been impacted by military service. This includes those who are serving or have served in any branch of the military – regardless of discharge status or conflict in which they served – as well as spouses, significant others, children, and parents of those who have served.
We ensure our specialists can meet its unique needs by hiring former service members and providing cultural competence training to civilian providers.
We offer a first session for urgent care within 72 hours, and non-urgent appointment within one week. This is a stark contrast to the VA system, which has struggled to see those in need within 14 days.
Best practices in the treatment of PTSD show that 7-12 sessions are most effective. Only 3-5 sessions are received in most delivery models. Our average number of attended sessions is 7, but 12 are always authorized.
We have established partnerships with organizations across the nation to expand access to services. These include the Indiana Veterans Behavioral Health Network, Her War, Her Voice, the EOD Warrior Foundation and the nationally recognized Wounded Warrior Project.
