Outpatient Veteran & Family Clinic

Since its inception in 2009, Home Base has provided care and support to more than 7000 Post-9/11 Service Members, Veterans and Family Members affected by the Invisible Wounds of War and related conditions. Home Base’s approach ensures treatment is highly individualized and coordinated. Each participant receives a full, personalized assessment by the Home Base clinical team. Assessments are multi-disciplinary and include a thorough review of psychosocial needs such as housing, health insurance, and employment.
Here’s a sample of the types of treatments offered through the outpatient clinic

  • Individual Evidence Based Trauma-Focused Therapies such as:line of soldiers
    • Prolonged Exposure (PE)
    • Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)
    • Virtual Reality Exposure Technology Enhanced Therapy 
  • Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
  • Pharmacotherapy (Medication Treatments)
  • Community Reinforcement and Family Training Therapy 
  • Couples Counseling
  • Parenting Guidance
  • Child Behavior Health Treatment

Home Base Clinicians and the Veteran Outreach Coordinators work closely with each person to build a treatment plan and timeline that’s specific to his or her needs. Appointments take place at the Home Base offices, on the campus of Massachusetts General Hospital in downtown Boston, MA.

We work hard to shorten the wait times for treatment. Service Members, Veterans and Families will be connected with a Veteran Outreach Coordinator or member of our social work team to learn more about Home Base services, and an outpatient visit with a Home Base clinician for an evaluation is usually available within two weeks.

Treatment is available regardless of one’s ability to pay. For those who have insurance, Home Base will bill the insurance provider; but, patients are never required to cover co-pays or additional out-of-pocket costs. For Service Members, Veterans and Families who don’t have insurance or are under-insured, Home Base will cover all costs for our services.
