Support Groups for Veterans and their Families
More than 2.4 million American Active Duty and Reserve Service members have been deployed to Iraq & Afghanistan since 2001 in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. Of those returning Veterans, between 25-40% will have suffered the "signature injuries" of the Iraqi War, associated with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Though the war in Vietnam ended in 1975, many Vietnam Era Veterans, as senior citizens, continue to suffer from psychological and neurological injuries associated with a conflict that ended over 40 years ago.
PTSD can be debilitating, but with early intervention, the effects can be mitigated so service members can return to their homes and communities and lead healthy, productive, and happy lives.
Pro Active Behavioral Health is committed to providing counseling, substance abuse treatment, family interventions, martial counseling, parenting, supportive employment services, case management and commnity intergration, equine assisted psychotherapy using the
EAGALA model, evidenced-based trauma focused therapies (EMDR) and Military Specific Support Groups to enable our Service members to return to their families with the support necessary to recover, heal, and find hope for their future.
Pro Active Behavioral Health understands that the Military has its own culture. Therefore, we have established our porgram on a practice model of "Veterans helping Veterans". Pro Active employs counselors who have served in the Armed Forces, as well as, counselors who are family members of Active Duty or Disabled Veterans, who understand the sacrifice and honor of the Military family.
Our staff has received training specific to the needs of military personnel both pre-deployment and post-deployment and we strive to continue to expand our programs to meet the needs of soliders and their families.
