Services for Active Service Members, Veterans, and Families

At Health Affiliates Maine, our specially-trained clinicians are proud to work with active and retired service members, veterans, Reservists and Guard members, and their families. We provide evidence-based services that support the unique challenges of military life, including readiness for battle and assimilation into the “new normal.”

The term recovery has often been related only to “addiction.” But we know that trauma affects everyone in different ways; and trauma has its own recovery. HAM’s treatment services focus on helping service members through recovery so that they can feel part of their communities once again.

Working with You Toward Well-being

Health Affiliates Maine is committed to helping the men and women of the armed forces manage:

  • Post-traumatic stress
  • Impactful events
  • Relationship challenges
  • Substance use disorder
  • Anger, grief, and loss
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Other mental health concerns

Everyone needs help now and then. We are here to support you.

Clinicians with Specialized Training

HAM counselors have an understanding of military culture, knowledge of Maine’s military history, and speak frequently with members of the Maine National Guard (Army and Air). Based on proven best practices, we have carefully tailored our mental health and substance use disorder services to encourage successful outcomes for military members and their families.

Above all, our skilled professionals respect and value a soldier’s strength and resilience.

“Having served for many years, I understand that there is an enormous burden put on our service members and their families. Many times this leaves people with emotional scars you cannot see. Having the resources, which HAM provides our veterans, can help people heal and enrich their lives.” – Jeffrey Lagueux, Sergeant First Class, US Army (ret.)
