For anyone who has served in our Country’s Armed Forces-sometimes it is hard to find someone that can relate to what you are going through and how you feel. We want you to know that you are not alone and we offer the following services:

Substance Abuse Services

For those facing addiction to alcohol or other drugs, we offer outpatient groups for substance abuse issues. Helen Farabee Centers can also be the link to inpatient treatment for detoxification/dependence or local support groups.

Medical and Case Management Services

For those who have a qualifying diagnosis, including Major Depression, Bipolar, and/or Schizophrenia, Helen Farabee Centers offers both medication management and case management services.

For more information on this program, please contact:

Elliot Bonner, Veteran Peer Coordinator, at (940) 397-3315 or

These Services are made possible by a grant through the Texas Department of  State Health Services.
