What is the Intensive Clinical Program?

The Intensive Clinical Program (ICP) is an outpatient treatment program designed to treat Veterans and their Family Members who are struggling with invisible wounds with up to two years of treatment in a two-week program, combining evidence-based therapy with complementary and alternative medicine.

What sets the ICP apart from other programs is that it is staffed not only by Massachusetts General Hospital clinicians and fitness and nutrition experts — all trained in Military culture and specialize in treating invisible wounds — but also by Veterans, Service Members and Military Family Members who are subject-matter experts and are able to provide high-level peer support through their shared life experiences.

This program treats  ...

  • Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

    PTSD develops after a person has been directly exposed to, witnessed or heard about a traumatic event, and involves a threat of severe bodily harm or loss of life to themselves or others.

  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

    TBI occurs when a person experiences a head injury or concussion and has felt dazed and confused, had “their bell rung” or been knocked unconscious.

  • Military Sexual Trauma (MST)

    MST refers to experiences of sexual assault or repeated, threatening sexual harassment while on federal active duty, active duty for training or inactive duty training.

  • Co-Occurring Challenges

    Co-occurring challenges include major depressive disorder (depression) and generalized anxiety disorder (anxiety). Depression negatively affects how you feel, think and act. It can cause feelings of sadness and a loss of interest in activities; lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems; and decrease your ability to function at work and at home. Anxiety is characterized by long-lasting, excessive worry about life issues and day-to-day life. People experiencing anxiety often find it difficult to relax and have an inability to stop worrying, even in the absence of major life stress.
