We Appreciate Your Service

We believe when a service member serves our nation, his or her family serves alongside. River Crest 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 & Mental Health Treatment

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

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