Freedom Track Military Program

Service members, both active and veteran, face very different challenges than most people do on an everyday basis — and so does their mental health treatment. Finding a behavioral health program that gets you and understands where you are coming from, what you have been through, and how to help, is key to a happier, healthier life.

The Freedom Track Military Program at River Point Behavioral Health, located in Jacksonville, Florida, is designed specifically with the unique needs of service members in mind with the help of a treatment team that stands ready and waiting to help.

Outpatient Military Programs

River Point Behavioral Health offers both an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for military members and veterans. Outpatient programs can offer adults the support and structure needed to promote recovery while allowing them to maintain some of their regular activities.

The Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) include:

  • Daily group therapy
  • Weekly psychiatric oversight and supervision
  • Individualized treatment and therapy plans
  • Medication management

Our Part-Time Day Program

The IOP meets Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon. With just a few hours of treatment a day throughout the week, individuals receive many of the same tools and skills to recovery that they would learn in a more intensive, residential program while also being given the freedom to maintain regular activities throughout the afternoon and evening.

Our Full-Time Day Program

The PHP meets Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. This program is more intensive than an IOP due to the extended hours of treatment, but still allows for individuals to maintain their regular activities in the evening.

Daily Group Topics, Therapies and Treatments

Your experiences are unique, and your treatment should be, too. Our daily groups take into account the specific needs of active service members and veterans to provide targeted treatment and therapies.

Daily group topics can include:

  • Understanding and coping with PTSD (Education, Symptoms and Cognitive Theory)
  • Combat trauma
  • Resilience coaching/therapy
  • Overcoming military sexual trauma
  • Coping with military stressors and navigating the military environment
  • Identifying and coping with triggers (combat- and noncombat-related)
  • Overcoming substance use
  • CBT/DBT and Cognitive Processing Therapy
  • Expressive therapies such as recreation, music and art therapy
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), as appropriate
  • Family education and support
  • Building and strengthening a social support structure
  • Relapse prevention

*Adult and child & adolescent inpatient services are also available.

Treatment Team

The staff at River Point Behavioral Health understands what you need as a service member and is here to help. Our treatment team can include a psychiatrist, licensed therapist and registered nurse that are all working together to do what they do best — help you move along the path to recovery.
