Oceans Healthcare Military Programs

Support Through Active Recovery

The Oceans Healthcare STAR program is a specialized military behavioral health program for adults and seniors. The program is directed by physician-led multi-disciplinary treatment teams trained in evidence-based psychotherapies, including clinical practice guidelines recommended by the Department of Defense and Veteran’s Administration.

Specialized inpatient and intensive outpatient programs address a range of behavioral health issues, including:
  • Combat and non-combat post-traumatic stress
  • Substance use disorder co-occurring with a behavioral condition, including detoxification
  • Anxiety, depression and other debilitating behavioral illnesses
    *Co-occurring disorders are treated concurrently

STAR addresses the unique needs of adults on active duty and veterans who have served during peacetime service or modern wars such as operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation New Dawn.

Seniors, including Korean- and Vietnam-era veterans, attend separate programs with peers while their service-related issues are addressed individually.

STAR provides a familiar, structured environment for patients, including:
  • Dedicated military liaison to ensure ease of referral
  • Prompt seven-step admission process
  • Comprehensive communication with VA/DoD providers and commands
  • Military medication guidelines include VA/DoD formulary
  • Military culture training for all staff
  • Structured daily schedule set to military time
  • Evidence-based psychotherapies
  • Program accepts TRICARE, VA CHOICE, Medicare and most other insurance plans
