veteran with Bipolar Disorder
We understand mental illness and the difficulties it creates for those who suffer from it. At our San Diego Mental Health Treatment Center we are sensitive to your challenges. Solara will find every possible solution to enable you to live the life that you are meant to live.


Failure to Launch Syndrome

At Solara Mental Health, our veterans often come to us having already attempted to find treatment, but without success. They find themselves falling into their old destructive patterns of thought and behavior, or even realize their symptoms have gotten worse.


Failure to launch syndrome — a lack of success in achieving one or more life goals, such as receiving treatment — is a real struggle that has significant repercussions on all aspects of an individual’s life, including the following:

  • Feelings of frustration, disappointment, and hopelessness
  • Lack of trust in self and the therapeutic process
  • Decreased self-confidence
  • Poor health habits
  • Inability to form and maintain healthy relationships
  • Lack of motivation in other areas of life, including education, work, and spirituality
  • Decreased sense of purpose

We understand how difficult these feelings can be to overcome, particularly for an individual beginning a new treatment process. At Solara Mental Health, we have a tailored program for failure-to-launch syndrome treatment in San Diego. The program helps veterans free themselves from feelings of frustration and hopelessness and move forward toward lasting recovery.


This process begins with an in-depth assessment conducted by the trained clinicians at our psychiatric facility. Our assessment draws on information from the veteran, their loved ones, and their outpatient care providers.  This information allows us to fully understand a veteran’s symptoms, needs, and treatment history—including what has and hasn’t worked in past treatments.  From there we determine what habits may be keeping a veteran from meeting goals and making lasting changes.

With this full understanding, the clinicians at our mental health center develop a personalized treatment plan for each veteran. Depending on a veteran’s needs, their treatment plan will utilize a unique combination of individual psychotherapy, group therapy, holistic therapies, and specialized therapies.  This gives veterans a comprehensive and in-depth treatment experience. In this environment, veterans gain greater insight into their strengths and weaknesses, learn concrete tools to move forward, and gain a support system of understanding peers and clinicians.  These tools help a veteran move forward to meet goals and find greater purpose and peace in their lives.

What Our Clients Say


I have never felt better than I do now, since completing your program. The truly caring and supportive staff and the intensive program changed my life. What a neat place to stay for treatment - I love Pacific Beach! I have learned skills and behavior to move forward with my life thanks to you.

R.M. – Father

If not for Solara Mental Health, I am almost positive that our daughter would not be as advanced in her treatment, and would not have the almost miraculous confident and positive outlook that she has.


Even though I’m not religious, I realized when I got sober that for the first time in my life I wanted to explore my spiritual side. I benefited hugely from the individual spiritual sessions that I had with Chris. I’m really grateful for that aspect of the whole treatment experience.

Watson Family

Solara’s program was such a positive experience for our mom (and for us)! She had become almost impossible to deal with. Your entire staff was phenomenally supportive and kind and patient with her. We feel like we’ve got our mom back, now.


We are so grateful to you for the treatment and care you provided our daughter. She is doing unbelievably well now thanks to your program. We will gladly tell anyone we encounter that needs treatment about the wonderful work you do at Solara.


Solara was truly a life-changing experience for me and for our children, because of what you did for my wife! The treatment team was phenomenally supportive and perfect for helping her with her anxiety and depression. We are all now moving forward to put our lives back together and it started with you all in Pacific Beach. Thank you for what you do.

M.P. – Father

Your program provided our daughter with the most masterful therapist we have ever encountered (and we have used many).  She has had an unbelievable ability to see the long-term trajectory of our daughter’s treatment and to approach her treatment in stages that fit where my daughter’s development was.  We can’t say enough positive about her.


The Solara Treatment Program was a life-changing experience for me. To be able to heal in such a beautiful, peaceful environment, with such a terrific treatment team, was so amazingly positive. I have found my true self, again. I thank you and my family thanks you for helping me become the person I was meant to be.

Michelle Family

I want to thank you and the entire staff and support system at Solara for taking such good care of my sister. On behalf of my entire family, we want you all to understand that your patience and kindness stretches further than you can see… Thank you, again and again, from the bottom of my heart.


The program has given me the tools I needed to really gain stability. For the first time in years - maybe for as long as I can remember, actually, I’m learning how to cope and manage my stressors and triggers. I now believe that I can find some relief and happiness.


The Solara program is truly amazing. I’ve never had more clarity or more good energy in my entire life. The attention the physicians and the therapists gave me was outstanding. I feel like they truly understood and addressed my issues, which had consumed my life for years. Thank you all.


The therapists and counselors and really whole team were extremely beneficial to me and my understanding of my issues. The treatment plan they developed was exactly what I needed
