Military Veterans and PTSD
Military veterans who have been in or seen combat situations experience extraordinary stress. Many vets will develop post traumatic stress (PTSD).
Veterans using alcohol or drug to cope struggle with addiction – complicated by co-occurring disorders.
To recover, integrated dual diagnosis treatment will be needed.
Dual Diagnosis Integrated Treatment for PTSD and Addiction
We integrate Mindfulness into our dual diagnosis addiction rehab treatment. We have found that while mindfulness is easy to learn with a knowledgeable instructor – it is not an automatic behavior. However once learned, mindfulness provides a lifetime of stress relief and more.
Our evidence-based treatment includes a combination of:
• Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)
• Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
• Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
• Prolonged exposure
Trauma and PTSD
For more details, see What is PTSD?
Your nervous system has two automatic ways of responding to traumatic events: Mobilization and Immobilization.
Mobilization, or fight-or-flight, occurs when you need to defend yourself or survive the danger of a combat situation. Your heart pounds faster, your blood pressure rises, and your muscles tighten, increasing your strength and reaction speed. Once the danger has passed, your nervous system calms your body, lowering your heart rate and blood pressure, and winding back down to its normal balance.
Immobilization occurs when you’ve experienced too much stress in a situation and even though the danger has passed, you find yourself “stuck.” Your nervous system is unable to return to its normal state of balance and you’re unable to move on from the event. This is PTSD.
Recovering from PTSD involves transitioning out of the mental and emotional war zone you’re still living in and helping your nervous system become “unstuck.”
Mindfulness Whole Person Addiction Recovery
Once learned, Mindfulness costs nothing to practice.
“Mindfulness gives me a chance to center myself and just think about one thing at a time and allow my brain to take a moment to relax,” said Peter Lisowski, a Marine Corps Veteran and mindfulness program graduate.
Mindfulness can be done anywhere, at any time. It requires no setup. Mindfulness can be practiced while sitting, standing, walking, gazing at the ocean – the possibilities are endless.
Mark Williams is a professor of clinical psychology at Oxford; and the co-author of Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Finding Peace in a Frantic World.
According to Williams, after nine weeks of training – participants in a mindfulness program had “an increased sense of purpose and had fewer feelings of isolation and alienation; along with decreased symptoms of illness as diverse as headaches, chest pain, congestion and weakness.”

VA Community Care Provider
Veterans may be eligible for care through a provider in their local community, depending on their health care needs or circumstances; and if they meet specific eligibility criteria. Even if a Veteran is eligible for community care, they generally still have the option to receive care from a VA medical facility.
Last June, a landmark legislation known as the VA MISSION Act of 2018 made dramatic improvements in how Veterans can receive some aspects of health care.
In most cases, Veterans must receive approval from VA before receiving care from a community provider to avoid being billed for the care. VA staff members generally make all eligibility determinations for community care.
We are in-network with TriWest, in coordination with Sierra Health and Wellness Centers.
The health and safety of our community has been, and remains, our greatest focus.
