Veterans Day: Three Facts You May Not Know
Veterans Day Facts
Veterans Day was originally known as Armistice Day in 1919, which was the first anniversary of the end of World War I.
Then, in 1926, Congress passed a resolution for an annual observance. It wasn’t until November 11, 1938 that it became a national holiday.
Unlike Memorial Day, this holiday honors all American Veterans whether they are alive or not and who served in the armed forces during war or peacetime.
Behavioral Health Services
Many of the men and women serving in the armed forces do not receive the care they deserve. Due to this, many experience depression, anxiety or substance use disorders. Moreover, if you know a veteran in need, please have them contact our Veterans Engagement Specialist Andy Lexow.
We offer the following: Substance use disorder treatment in both an inpatient and outpatient setting. Additionally mental health outpatient services are available.

In early 2022 we will also begin to offer Animal Behavior Therapy. In short, this will give men and women who have or are serving in the armed forces, and those 18 and older with a mental health condition, the opportunity to experience the powerful therapeutic benefits of groundwork with horses.
