Oakwood Springs, a behavioral health facility that opened in Oklahoma City less than a year ago, will open a new unit focused on military members, veterans and first responders.

The 24-bed unit will open Wednesday, though members of the public who are curious can visit from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at Oakwood Springs, 13101 Memorial Ct. The “HOPE for Heroes” program is designed for people who have post-traumatic stress disorder, combat stress or other forms of trauma related to their service, said Alicia McAlpin, director of business development at Oakwood Springs. Veterans whose behavioral health needs aren’t related to their service still can seek treatment in the units for the general population, she said.
