Active Duty Military and Veterans

Active military and veterans place their lives on the line for the safety of our country. However, many who offer their service come back home with more than just physical scars, having experienced the ill effects of combat and other traumatic events. This can lead to feelings of isolation and inability to connect intimately with family and friends. In certain cases this can also lead to PTSD, with many turning to alcohol and drugs in order to decompress.

For family members, it can be hard to come to the realization that the person who returned home is not the same person they know and love. In these situations, seeking treatment from Warriors Heart is the best option to ensure that they are able to recover and truly come home.

Comforting & Healing Facilities

Located in Bandera, TX in a beautiful, private ranch, our goal with Warriors Heart is to provide treatment in a home-like environment. We strongly believe that healing is best done at home, and by avoiding the sterile-looking feel of a hospital we have created a treatment center that helps highlight those qualities. Within the many acres of our ranch you will find comfortable suite-like client rooms, recreational rooms, relaxing outdoor activities, and plenty of space to reflect. There is also a warrior fitness center, wild game for hunting, and delicious meals cooked by a private chef.

We pride ourselves in having designed Warriors Heart as an environment where you won’t feel alone by providing a place where warriors can interact with others who have experienced similar situations.

Treatments We Offer

Our treatment programs start at a minimum of 28 days (4 weeks), but our main program and one that will provide the most benefits consists of a 6 to 8 week program. These programs are tailored to treat a variety of symptoms, including PTSD, grief/loss, and moral injury.

Once treatment begins, we will provide your loved one with an individual treatment plan developed by their primary counselor after an initial screening. These treatment plans are designed to address the problems that are identified and ensure that their challenges are addressed correctly.

Outpatient Program

Once your 28 day inpatient program has been completed, we offer an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) to allow for a smoother transition out of treatment. This provides a greater chance of success of long term sobriety and is done through at least 1 session a week of individual counseling/therapy.

Residential Treatment

Treatment will last for a minimum of 28 days alongside others who understand what they are going through. This is our most effective treatment program since it allows for your loved one to be with others who have experienced similar hardships and can provide support while being under our care 24/7.

Long Term Sober Living

Relapse is often considered a normal part of treatment, and for most cases we recommend your warrior join one of our sober living programs. There they will be able to attend meetings and counseling sessions that will help them continue a sober life while staying away from alcohol and drugs.

Day Treatment

A cornerstone of our treatment program, the day treatment process involves group counseling and therapy sessions. Several of those in this program are also involved in the Warriors Heart Sober Living community which provides structure, accountability, and a sense of togetherness that’s unrivaled. There’s a minimum of 2 hours of group counseling or group therapy during 4 days of the week.

Detox

Our detox facility is located within Warriors Heart and offers safe and comfortable drug and alcohol detoxification for all warriors. We’re fully staffed with experienced and licensed substance addiction specialists which provide the highest quality treatment possible, personalized monitoring, and management of withdrawal symptoms 24/7.

Warriors Heart is TRICARE Certified

Signs To Look For

It’s important to look out for a few telltale signs that your loved one in the military might be experiencing symptoms of PTSD. While some of these symptoms might occur after stressful situations, such as not wanting to engage in enjoyable activities, they become of concern when they are sustained.

A fear of losing a promotion, lacking trust to articulate emotional pain, or even just saving face and acting tough could often lead many to not seek help within the military and the resources they provide. This is why Warriors Heart was made, to provide assistance to those who are in a time of need.

Feelings of unrest

After their return they might be unable to sleep well as a result of the vivid memories they experienced during service. Some may even attempt to drink alcohol or take drugs in order to get sleep, however, this can ultimately lead to addiction which causes more harm.

Inability to feel happiness

Those who experience PTSD or addiction tend to lose pleasure in activities they once enjoyed. This can include losing interest in doing any activities at all or simply having difficulty experiencing any positive emotions when spending time with friends and family. This can also include isolating themselves from others in an attempt to hide their inability to express positive emotions.

Shift in mood

A shift in mood is one of the most noticeable signs to watch out for and one that family will notice upon their return from service. This can include feelings of irritability, aggression towards others, expression no hope for the future, mentions of feeling trapped, among many others.

Using drugs or alcohol excessively

Alcohol has long been a socially acceptable outlet for stress. However, those who are experiencing PTSD or addiction tend to abuse alcohol to the point of blackouts, hangovers, and binge sessions. This also includes the abuse of drugs to the point of dependency and withdrawal symptoms if attempts are done to stop.

Threats to cause self-harm or suicide

One of the most alarming signs is your loved one stating that they want to cause self-harm or commit suicide. It’s important to not take these threats as simple words. If a loved one in the military has taken action or threatened to harm himself, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 for immediate assistance.

Violent behavior

Upon returning from service there could be an increase in risk-taking behavior which indicates a disregard for their safety and life. They might also threaten to hurt or actually harm someone they love. This can include domestic violence where the partner or family members are subject to intimidation, physical assault, sexual assault, or other abusive behavior.

Since my transition out of the military I have never really been able to find home. Warriors Heart has shown me the path that leads to it.
