It’s a reality many veterans and their loved ones know all too well – life just isn’t the same after returning from military service. That’s why Atlantic Behavioral Health offers a program called True North, which helps service men and women readjust to civilian life, whether it’s been days, months or years since their discharge.
True North Services
Our licensed clinicians help veterans and their family members overcome the challenges affecting their goals, daily life and relationships. Therapy is available on an individual, couples or family basis in safe and confidential settings. We also provide medication management, if needed, as well as client advocacy, referrals and linkages to other service providers within the community and Atlantic Health System.
Symptoms of Mental Illness Related to Military Service
Veterans struggling with the aftermath of their military experience may experience:
- Feelings of isolation and hopelessness
- Anger, irritability or frustration
- Loss of interest in activities that used to be enjoyable
- Relationship problems
- Frequent reminders of past traumatic events
- Difficulty eating or sleeping
- Drug and alcohol use
- Anxiety, depression or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Those displaying some or all of these symptoms may benefit from a consultation with True North.
True North Eligibility
Any person who has served in the United States Armed Forces, regardless of discharge status or insurance coverage, is eligible for True North’s services. Family members – including parents, spouses or partners, siblings, children and surviving spouses – are also welcome to speak with our clinicians. For those who are already receiving Veterans Affairs (VA) services, our team will collaborate with their case workers.
