Mission Resiliency Programs

To fulfill our mission to serve the needs of our active duty military community, Laurel Ridge has a 60 bed unit on our peaceful 18 acre campus.

This Mission Resiliency Unit is a military-specific treatment program that is exclusively designed to meet the complex, multiple needs related to the active duty service member’s Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), including Substance/Alcohol/Drug Abuse and other behavioral health issues. This comprehensive treatment program supports family involvement with family process and education groups. All aspects of the treatment tracks sustain the primary goal of the Mission Resiliency Program: to reintegrate service members to their duty stations and family, and provide a seamless continuum of care.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

This treatment program is designed to address the symptoms of PTSD in relation to traumatic events and stressors. The evidence-based program at Laurel Ridge 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. The goal for the service member is to gainfully return to his or her duty station.

Chemical Dependency Rehabilitation/Dual Diagnosis

A goodbye hug for a private off to war.This treatment track is specifically designed to assist the service member who is struggling with substance/alcohol abuse in conjunction with PTSD. Each service member will have the opportunity to develop healthy coping strategies while gaining valuable insight into managing his or her condition, including related symptoms and addiction issues. This track also addresses the individual’s PTSD treatment needs, as it is not uncommon for a service member to exhibit both substance/alcohol abuse with PTSD.

Chemical Detoxification

Service members receive close medical monitoring to safely detoxify from alcohol, opiates, and prescription drugs. Detoxification includes implementing medical structures and Relapse Prevention Model treatments.
