Women's Health - Trauma Recovery Program



About Us

This program is designed specifically to help women heal from trauma they experienced during their military service. The recovery program is one of two tracks within the Women's Trauma and Recovery Center.  The other track is the Women’s Addiction Treatment Center

Who We Serve

We care for women who experience different types of military trauma including, but not limited to, military sexual trauma, combat, nursing or medical trauma, accidents, domestic violence and body recovery.  The three most common difficulties people have after experiencing trauma are posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depressive disorders, and substance-related disorders. We also tailor our treatment approaches to help women with other common difficulties, including other anxiety disorders, eating disorders, bipolar disorders and borderline personality disorder. 


Our staff is made up of mostly female mental health providers trained in delivering the most effective forms of treatment for difficulties experienced by trauma survivors.

Contact Us
