Smokey Point Behavioral Hospital has made a point of recognizing the specific mental health and behavioral health needs often experienced by United States veterans, such as post-traumatic stress disorder. The health system recognizes that unfortunately, only half of the nation’s veterans receive access to needed mental health services, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. For many veterans, symptoms of PTSD usually do not occur until after they have been discharged from the hospital. This poses an added barrier for veterans to connect with suitable treatment and resources. Smokey Point Behavioral Hospital focuses particularly on these often-overlooked populations, which also includes older veterans with PTSD who often have delayed or never received treatment.
The health system is dedicated to providing specialized services in a safe environment with highly qualified physicians, nurses, counselors and technicians. In addition to services for veterans, Smokey Point Behavioral Hospital also offers specialized mental health and substance abuse treatment.
