There are many components that compound the stress response related to serving our nation:
- Multiple deployments
- Length of time between deployments
- Duration of current conflicts
- Family separation and reintegration
These situations, when combined with the high intensity of the conflicts, cause additional stress on the family structure and resources. Often times, this can result in substance abuse issues or other behavioral health problems such as depression.
Patriot Support Programs have board-certified psychiatrists, registered nurses, military-trained therapists and other professionals prepared to help. Through treatment, we can teach the necessary resiliency skills to support healthy coping strategies for the stress of conflict.
We help families prepare and plan for the deployment cycle, learn and utilize new skills, while accessing the support offered through civilian and military resources.
