IOP and PHP Programs For Veterans

Veterans, our nation’s heroes, often face unique mental health challenges that can make the transition back to civilian life difficult. Among these challenges, depression stands out as a pervasive issue. The pressures and traumas experienced during service can lead to feelings of isolation, sadness, and hopelessness. At New U Therapy, we recognize the profound impact that depression can have on veterans and their families. That’s why we’re dedicated to providing specialized support through our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), now proudly accepting TriWest insurance.

Understanding depression in Veterans

Depression in veterans can manifest differently compared to the general population. The experiences of combat, loss of comrades, and the abrupt change from a structured military environment to civilian life contribute to a complex mental health landscape. Symptoms of depression in veterans may include:

  • Persistent sadness or emptiness
  • Irritability or frustration
  • Loss of interest in activities once enjoyed
  • Difficulty concentrating or making decisions
  • Feelings of guilt or worthlessness
  • Changes in sleep patterns or appetite
  • Physical symptoms such as headaches or chronic pain
  • Thoughts of death or suicide
  • Recognizing these symptoms is the first step toward seeking help. At New U Therapy, our goal is to provide veterans with the tools and support they need to manage their depression and reclaim their lives.

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) are designed specifically to meet the needs of veterans. These programs offer structured support while allowing participants to maintain their daily responsibilities. Here’s how our programs can help:

Veteran-Specific Care

Veterans have a unique culture and set of experiences that can significantly impact their mental health. At New U Therapy, we understand that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work. Our programs are tailored to the specific needs of veterans, ensuring that they receive the most effective care. Being surrounded by peers who share similar experiences creates a supportive and understanding community where veterans can thrive.

Flexible Scheduling
We understand that transitioning back to civilian life can be challenging, especially when trying to balance work, family, and therapy. Our programs are designed to be flexible, with various scheduling options to accommodate the needs of our veterans. This flexibility ensures that they can receive the care they need without disrupting their daily lives.

Holistic Approach
In addition to traditional therapy, our programs include holistic treatments such as mindfulness, yoga, and art therapy. These therapies help veterans reconnect with themselves and find new ways to cope with stress and depression.

Now Accepting TriWest Insurance

We are thrilled to announce that New U Therapy now accepts TriWest insurance for our specialized IOP and PHP programs. This partnership allows us to extend our services to even more veterans, ensuring they receive the care they deserve. With TriWest, veterans can access our comprehensive mental health services without worrying about the financial burden.

The Importance of Community

One of the most significant benefits of our programs is the sense of community they provide. Veterans often feel isolated when they return to civilian life, struggling to find people who understand their experiences. At New U Therapy, our veteran-specific programs foster a sense of camaraderie and mutual support. Veterans can share their stories, learn from each other, and build a strong support network that extends beyond our program.

Referral Information
We encourage healthcare providers, family members, and friends to refer veterans to our IOP and PHP programs. With our new TriWest contract, more veterans can access the specialized care they need to overcome depression and lead fulfilling lives.

At New U Therapy, we are committed to supporting our veterans every step of the way. Together, we can help them heal, grow, and thrive. For more information or to make a referral, please contact us today.
