Compassionate, no-cost care for your loved one struggling with invisible wounds

If your loved one is a service member or a veteran who served one day post-9/11 struggling with invisible wounds such as PTSD, traumatic brain injury (TBI), military sexual trauma (MST), depression, or anxiety, the Emory Healthcare Veterans Program is here to help.

We offer confidential care for post-9/11 veterans and service members, regardless of location, discharge status, deployment history, or length of service - at no cost to the warrior or their family.

Although your loved one may feel as if no one will understand what they’re dealing with, our team is made up of kind and compassionate professionals who specialize in treating veterans and service members. They understand and they’re here to help.

“The Emory Healthcare Veterans Program helped Derrick in a lot of ways. It helped him get his life back, his family back, his friends. But it also helped me by giving me a partner instead of someone to take care of. He’s loving and caring and kind. Treatment made a huge difference. Huge.”

Common Symptoms of Invisible Wounds

  • Nightmares, trouble sleeping
  • Flashbacks, intrusive thoughts, or images
  • Strong startle reactions
  • Problems with anger
  • Constantly feeling alert or on edge
  • Avoidance of crowds, social gatherings, driving in traffic, or other potential triggers
  • Anxiety or panic attacks

How We Treat Invisible Wounds

Our confidential Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is evidence-based and can be completed in-person at our clinic in Atlanta, Georgia or via telehealth in participating states. This two-week program reduces symptoms, promotes health and wellbeing, and improves relationships and social functioning. Your loved one will receive as much therapy in two weeks as they would typically get in a year, learn about yoga, medications, sleep and wellness, healthy coping skills, and communication techniques - especially with regard to partners, family, and friends. Treatment is customized for each individual and centered around their specific circumstances and goals. We also offer a traditional outpatient program for those who are not able to take two weeks off to participate in the IOP.

COVID-19 Safety Procedures

We continue to take steps to ensure the safety of our warriors participating in the in-person Intensive Outpatient Program:

  • Some therapy sessions will be conducted remotely due to COVID-19 guidelines
  • Staff and warriors are required to wear masks within the building
  • Bottled water will be available in place of water fountains
  • Common areas such as the Warrior Lounge, front lobby, restrooms, and elevators will be cleaned throughout the day
