Military Program

Mission Wellness Military/Veteran Program

Serving patients from around the country, Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health System’s Mission Wellness Program is designated as a Patriot Support Center of Excellence. It is available to active duty military, reservists, National Guard members and veterans experiencing mental health, substance abuse and dual diagnosis issues — particularly those related to combat and stress. We provide a structured, integrated approach to healing by utilizing evidence-based treatment, led by a multidisciplinary team of mental health professionals.

Mission Wellness is tailored to provide the unique care that military members and veterans deserve. We are proud to note that our staff has a deep understanding and appreciation for military culture, as many have grown up in our military-minded community near Fort Knox, have family and friends who have served and have honorably served themselves.
