Intensive Outpatient Program and Case Management

We recognize that a veteran’s after-treatment plan can be equally as or even more important than the In-Residence treatment program. For this reason, we focus extensive resources and expertise in formulating a comprehensive, detailed continuing-care plan for every veteran to insure lasting healing. Depending on the unique requirements of each veteran, we create a rigorous, structured plan for her/him to follow, after graduation. Every transitional treatment plan is unique, but may include the following services:

Intensive Outpatient Treatment Services at Solara

Graduating veterans may continue to participate in daily programming at Solara, which is largely the day program segment of the Partial Hospitalization Program, including:

  • Regular Psychiatrist Follow Up and Continuing Medication Management
  • Continuing Individual Therapy with the Primary Therapist
  • Daily Small Group Therapy
  • Case Management
  • Luncheon
  • Adjunctive Therapies
  • Program Activities
  • Alumni Activities

Our Admissions team can provide the cost and addition information regarding our daily 3-hr. or 6-hr outpatient programs.

Continuing Case Management

Our expert case managers can provide case management services to our local veterans.  Case management may include the following, predicated on the desired level of service:

  • Daily Check-Ins
  • Weekly Treatment Plan and Veteran Schedule Review
  • Communication with Medical and Clinical Providers
  • Housing Assistance
  • Transportation Assistance
  • Education Assistance
  • Employment Assistance

For veterans who are not local to us, the Case Manager creates an extensive post-treatment plan with services in the veteran’s home area, which may include:

  • Psychiatrist Referral
  • Clinical Referral
  • Transitional Housing Recommendation
  • Outpatient Program Referral
  • Support Group Referral
  • Coaching and Monitoring Referral
  • More

Professional Monitoring Services

Graduating veterans, either local or not, may elect to matriculate in a ‘veteran monitoring program,’ provided by independent monitoring groups.  Depending on the veteran’s needs, these services can be exceedingly helpful in week-to-week, day-to-day, or even hour-to-hour veteran assistance.

Solara’s Intensive Outpatient Program and Case Management for Veterans

Solara Mental Health in San Diego is focused on giving veterans a supportive and safe environment for their recovery. Our mental health treatment facility recognizes that each veteran will have their own personal needs, and we will customize their treatment plan to help with their specific diagnosis and symptoms.

Solara Mental Health is VA-contracted, which gives us the unique opportunity to help veterans with their mental health needs. As long as authorization is approved, we provide housing, transportation, and accommodations.

Alumni Program

The alumni of our mental health treatment center are a wonderfully diverse and highly supportive group of graduates.  They can be found locally, as well as throughout the country and beyond.  All of our alumni share a common bond and lasting friendships develop regularly, whether or not they were in treatment at the same time.  All can participate in the program, either through our robust local activities, or remotely through social media.  We provide regular local services and activities for all.  We also provide communication, education, interaction and more through social media and email channels.  Our alumni program is an outstanding vehicle for veterans to remain connected to us and to each other in a supportive, fun way.

What Our Clients Say


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.


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.

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.

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.


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.


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


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.

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.


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.


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.


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.
