Behavioral Health Therapy for Military in San Antonio

Military family reunited on a sunny dayFor those who have dedicated their lives to serving our country, the trials of everyday life can be compounded by challenges inherent in deployment cycles and the military lifestyle, as well as individual issues. San Antonio Behavioral Healthcare Hospital can help with care that is focused on the individual. We help our patients succeed by providing an environment that fosters positive changes through evidence-based therapeutic interventions, including:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Prolonged Exposure (PE)
  • Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)

These mental health services are also interwoven with physical wellness, mindfulness, and medication management.

Our highly-trained staff has received specialized training from experts, thought leaders, and creators of evidence-based treatments in collaboration with the Department of Defense (DoD). Clients and referring professionals work with one identified Military Case Manager, who coordinates all aspects of care. This Military Case Manager is the conduit for communication among referring providers, nurse case managers, and the chain of command to develop an uninterrupted transition of care back to the Military Treatment Facility.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Patients often battle co-occurring substance and behavioral health conditions, compounding the challenges facing our service members. The dual diagnosis treatment program is a therapeutic regimen that combines group, individual, and psychotherapies to identify triggers and develop self-regulation skills to avoid a potential relapse. Service members enrolled in the Military Dual Diagnosis program also receive treatment to address their specific behavioral health conditions using strategies like mindfulness, acceptance, and emotion regulation. Patients suffering from co-occurring diagnoses benefit from the hybrid therapeutic approach due to the program’s intentional ability to tailor and individualize the treatment to address the complex challenges they face.

If you or someone you know is suffering from severe psychiatric issues that are negatively affecting the ability to function in everyday life, San Antonio Behavioral Healthcare Hospital can help.
