Chris Kyle Patriots Hospital provides treatment to military service members and veterans, who have experienced trauma and are in need of detoxification and/or rehabilitation for substance abuse. We also serve service member adult dependents ages 18 and older who are in need of substance abuse treatment.
Our staff is mindful of the importance of family involvement in the healing, recovery, and transitional processes and our program includes a family component referred to as Ohana Nui (The big family).
To implement our care, the program primarily utilizes:
- Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)
- Prolonged Exposure (PE)
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
- A 12-step model
In addition, the program will also include specific curricula in the milieu (therapeutic community):
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy skills groups
- Seeking Safety
- Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) / Narcotics Anonymous (NA)
- Mind Over Mood
- A spirituality curriculum
We recognize that trauma recovery occurs through adaptive, transitional phases (stabilization, trauma processing and reintegration). Therefore, our psychoeducational classes, recreational therapy activities and processing groups are designed whereby information builds upon earlier modules and cognitive processing is progressive in nature. Our program also recognizes that the core of the healing process lies within resiliency traits and achievement of personal values and focuses on developing those areas in each patient.
