Veterans encounter distinct mental health challenges, including:
PTSD is a common challenge for veterans, marked by intrusive thoughts, flashbacks, and nightmares from traumatic events. Symptoms often include anxiety, sadness, anger, concentration difficulties, sleep disturbances, and avoidance behaviors. At Montare Outpatient, we understand the complexity of post-traumatic stress disorder and offer effective treatment and support to address its multifaceted impact.
Many veterans struggle with depression, experiencing persistent sadness, despair, and disinterest in activities they once enjoyed. Factors like the transition to civilian life and past traumas contribute to this condition. Recognizing the frequent co-occurrence of depression with PTSD, Montare Outpatient provides a holistic approach to treatment, addressing the full spectrum of mental health challenges faced by veterans.
Veterans often face anxiety symptoms, including excessive worry, stress, restlessness, and concentration difficulties, typically linked to their service experiences. At Montare Outpatient, we design treatment programs to specifically target these symptoms, equipping veterans with practical tools and support to treat anxiety and improve their daily functioning.
At Montare Outpatient, we offer a range of outpatient mental health services tailored to the unique needs of veterans. This includes a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Our therapeutic approaches are individualized, ensuring that each veteran receives care that resonates with their experiences and challenges.

To cater to the unique requirements of veterans, Montare Outpatient offers an array of therapeutic methods, such as:
These varied methods enable a more customized and all-encompassing approach to mental health treatment for veterans, guaranteeing that every veteran receives the necessary care and support.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a highly effective, evidence-based form of psychotherapy that focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviors. It helps individuals understand the connection between their thoughts, emotions, and actions and teaches them strategies to modify unhelpful thinking and behavior. CBT is particularly effective for treating a range of issues, including depression, anxiety, and PTSD, making it a valuable tool in mental health treatment.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a form of therapy that combines cognitive-behavioral techniques with mindfulness practices. It is particularly effective for individuals who experience intense emotions and struggle with relationships, self-harm, or suicidal thoughts. DBT focuses on teaching skills in four key areas: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. These skills help individuals manage their emotions more effectively and improve their interactions with others.
Trauma therapy encompasses a range of therapeutic approaches specifically designed to address the psychological impact of traumatic experiences. This type of therapy aims to help individuals process and make sense of their trauma, reduce trauma-induced symptoms like flashbacks and anxiety, and regain a sense of control over their lives. Techniques can vary but often include exposure therapy, cognitive restructuring, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
Holistic treatment approaches mental health by considering the whole person – body, mind, spirit, and emotions – in the quest for optimal health and wellness. It often combines traditional therapies with complementary practices like yoga, meditation, acupuncture, and nutrition counseling. The goal is to achieve maximum well-being, where everything functions at its best. Holistic treatment is particularly beneficial for those seeking a comprehensive approach to healing that extends beyond conventional medical treatments.
