Military & Dependents
"Be convinced that to be happy means to be free, and that to be free means to be brave. Therefore do not take lightly the perils of war."
Psychiatric Care for Military Personnel and Their Dependents
War-time military service places unique stresses on service members and their families unlike those experienced by the civilian population. The Military Psychiatric Care Program at The Pavilion at Williamsburg Place is designed to treat active duty service members in need of crisis stabilization, treatment of mood disorders, and other acute psychiatric issues. Services are also offered to the dependents of military personnel currently serving or who are returning veterans and are struggling to cope with issues facing the family.
- We work in collaboration with military referral commands to ensure continuity of care of its patients throughout treatment, as well as discharge planning.
- We understand the requirements and guidelines for TRICARE Health Care Program beneficiaries.
- We provide regular updates to both the referral military treatment facility as well as the service member’s command.
- The Pavilion's Military Services Manager acts as single point contact for active duty military member’s command, thus streamlining communications.
