We look forward to helping our Veterans.
Through the experience of soldiers from actions like Vietnam, which ended in 1975, our senior veterans were experiencing psychological and neurological injuries associated with a conflict that ended over 40 years ago. That has given the Psychology world the opportunity for growth the field of post service mental health counselling to grow and allowed veterans of all age’s new opportunities.
Since 2001, 2.77 million service members have served on 5.4 million deployments across the world with soldiers from the Army accounting for the bulk of them. Deployed personnel were under 30 years old on average, over half were married and about half them have children. These service members have been to the war zones of Iraq and Afghanistan, and over half of them have deployed more than once.
Of those returning Veterans, between 25-40% will have suffered the "signature injuries" of the Iraqi War, associated with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
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 community integration, 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 program 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 soldiers and their families.
