Our values and principles of conduct guide our day-to-day operations and can be defined by one word: Honor.
For those who have dedicated their lives to serving our country, the trials of everyday life are now compounded with challenges many active-duty members face as a result of deployment cycles, military lifestyle, and their individualized issues. Our goal is to provide an environment in which a patient’s current behavioral health concerns can be addressed so that they can begin to make positive changes.
We provide therapeutic interventions based on evidence based behavioral approaches including:
- Prolonged Exposure (PE)
- Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
These evidence-based modalities are also interwoven with various themes such as substance abuse, trauma, medications, physical wellness, mindfulness, and medication management. We put our patients in a position for success by providing an atmosphere that promotes recovery using an individualized treatment care plan.
Our highly trained staff has received specialized training from subject matter experts, thought leaders, and creators of evidence-based treatments in collaboration with the Department of Defense (DoD). All 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 with the referring providers, nurse case managers, and the chain of command to develop an uninterrupted transition of care back to the Military Treatment Facility.
Program Specifics – tailoring each service member’s treatment plan to meet individualized needs.
We firmly believe that the best patient outcomes begin with empathy, compassion, and understanding to tailor an individualized treatment plan. That is why within the Victory program, we supplement the behavioral health treatment with specific, individualized programs for our service members.
In conjunction with multidisciplinary professionals, DoD and VA clinical guidelines, San Antonio Behavioral Healthcare Hospital offers a specific trauma program for active-duty service members. This treatment regimen has been purposefully designed to address the needs of service members that have experienced sexual trauma or been diagnosed with PTSD, acute stress disorder and/or other co-occurring conditions. We incorporate a range of therapies alongside empowerment and self-esteem building techniques in intensive induvial and group treatment. The Victory Trauma team places an emphasis on a holistic approach to help patients discover the tools they need to recover and reintegrate back into a healthy, productive life.
Detoxification and Substance Abuse
Our detox and substance abuse program utilizes evidence-based treatment therapies to enhance a 12-step model of recovery. The treatment approach focuses on education of addiction, identifying relapse triggers, positive coping strategies for cravings, and setting up a positive recovery support network to ensure long term recovery. Patients will receive daily visits with a psychiatrist and meet with their therapist and/or chemical dependency counselor as outlined in the service members individualized treatment plan. Treatment includes daily education and process groups, therapeutic recreation services, journaling, mindfulness practice and AA/NA meetings via Zoom at this time.

Military Dual Diagnosis
Patients often battle co-occurring substance and behavioral health conditions, compounding the challenges facing our service members. The dual diagnosis track 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.
