Military Program

Our Call to Duty

Windmoor Healthcare is specially designed to provide care to people experiencing emotional problems in their life. Psychiatric and substance use disorders devastate the emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being of all concerned. These diseases are progressive and potentially fatal when left untreated. Our staff of behavioral health professionals can help you through any crisis. We realize every person and situation is unique. Our treatment approach is individualized so we can help each patient navigate through their personal situation.

Mission Brief

Our program is based on a biopsychosocial model of treatment that is dedicated to treating the whole person. Our staff recognizes that each patient is an individual, so the program is specialized to their needs and structured with a variety of consistent daily activities. Our treatment program is based on the integration of evidence-based approaches, including:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • “Twelve Step” models of recovery
  • Motivational interviewing and “Readiness to Change” counseling
  • Cognitive processing therapy
  • Prolonged exposure therapy
  • Family systems therapy
  • Dialectical behavior therapy
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy
  • Electroconvulsive therapy

Each patient who attends the program may not receive all the above treatments, as each patient’s care is individualized based on treatment goals. Comprehensive treatment plans are also utilized and the patient is involved in the development of the plan and its regular update. The program also offers medication-assisted detoxification when medically indicated. Many patients are also prescribed psychotropic medication by their psychiatrist to correct neurochemical imbalances in the brain.
