"The Cohen Clinic at Centerstone will offer therapy, groups, and activities to treat all post-9/11 veterans and their families. Jacksonville has the highest population of female veterans in the United States, and they have unique needs, and in response, we tailor our care to meet those needs."

Clients are given an intake screening upon their first contact with the clinic.
