The Sheepdog Program is a licensed and credentialed counseling program for both mental health and substance abuse. We offer a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and an Intensive Out Patient (IOP) Program created specifically for Veterans, Federal and State Law Enforcement Officers, and First Responders. This group is unique and only open those who meet these prerequisites or those who get special approval by the program director.
The Sheepdog Program is led by an experienced team of military veterans, including our CEO and Founder, Adrian Marquez, who is a Marine Special Operations combat veteran and Purple Heart Recipient.
The Sheepdog Program was created by combat veterans and is run by veteran licensed practitioners. We seek to redefine the mental health treatment we provide to our veterans, active duty service members, and first responders. The program provides unprecedented and intense treatment programs that incorporate the latest and most effective treatment modalities.
We seek to eliminate the barriers and stigmas associated within these communities that surround mental health by offering a unique and unparalleled experience. We seek to redefine how the world treats our protectors by providing the empirical data needed to challenge the status-quo of ineffective standard insurance-based programs.
In stark contrast to standard treatment programs, our focus is to provide these heroes with a uniquely focused program and extensive array of services to treat the entire individual. Focusing on their mind, body, and soul.
We aim to treat every individual uniquely and offer them every modality and treatment approach at our disposal; without limiting their access to intensive treatment due to limitations created by insurance companies.
There is no such thing as a generic, clone stamped, predetermined program that should be blanketed across every client. Each client is unique and deserves to be treated according to their needs.
Every case is reviewed by the treatment team to provide the most direct and efficient approach to addressing the clients concerns. The program is fully capable of addressing mental health, behavioral health, TBI, stress management, physical trauma, emotional trauma, and addiction issues.
