Group therapy occurs daily where specific coping skills are taught and practiced. Weekly individual therapy is provided to enhance the daily teachings in group therapy.
  • Our Psychiatrists see patients daily and provide an extensive medical work-up, including labs and medication management needs. In addition, we have Internal Medicine coverage for medical consults.
  • Follow up after care plans are developed from the time of admission and throughout treatment focusing on safety and continuity of care.
  • Active Service Members are provided a Care Conference with their Command and Clinicians prior to their discharge.
  • Veterans are closely connected with the VA for follow up care as well as community resources.

The STAR Military Program uses the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 to track the severity of depression from admission to discharge. The scores of The Patient Health Questionnaire-9 are also complied and reviewed to determine patient outcomes.
