Treatment for Veterans in
Rocky Mount, NC
Straight Walk focuses on the mental health of our veterans. Many of our soldiers who come home suffer from continued mental health issues that can follow them for years. A veteran’s service doesn’t end with his discharge from the military. For many it marks the beginning of a new life long battle with maladies such as depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and general anxiety disorder. For loved ones who are unfamiliar with these disorders, symptoms can be easily recognized if you know what to look for.
Our company was founded in an effort to tell Veterans that they are not alone and there is help. That’s why we are here. We have been supporting the communities of Wake, Nash, Edgecombe, Bertie counties since 2009. Our compassionate licensed staff members provide holistic comprehensive case management, OPT (Out Patient Therapy), family therapy, and community integration among others.

Veterans Treatment in Rocky Mount, NC
Common issues Veterans face upon discharge:
Depression symptoms include irritability, feelings of guilt, fatigue, a loss of interest in their hobbies, and feelings of hopelessness.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms are generally grouped into four types: intrusive memories, avoidance, negative changes in thinking and mood, or changes in emotional reactions. Flashbacks that re-live a disturbing or traumatic event are also a symptom.
Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)—the broadest type of anxiety—is worrying too much about everyday things, large and small. Chronic sleep problems like having trouble falling asleep and / or staying asleep can be another symptom along with irrational fears that become overwhelming and disruptive, near constant muscle tension such as clenching your jaw, balling your fists, or flexing muscles throughout your body. Although not always related to anxiety, chronic digestive problems often accompany the disorder. Strong “stage freight”, self-consciousness, panic attacks, persistent self-doubt. These are just some of the symptoms and not all soldiers will have all of them.
