Why Veterans Addiction Treatment Centers Are Important

For many veterans, addiction is an all-too-familiar reality. Substance use is a common maladaptive coping mechanism that helps numb emotional pain and provides an escape from the stresses of daily life. 

But left untreated, addiction has serious implications for those it impacts. Veterans’ addiction treatment centers that consider the needs of veterans and work to provide them with long-term support can help promote harm reduction and the development of healthier lifestyles. 

As a result, drug addiction treatment for veterans must account for the realities that shape how many veterans experience substance misuse. 

Mental health and addiction go hand-in-hand

Mental health risk factors are among the most common potential causes of addiction for anyone, but this may be especially true for veterans. In fact, for many people, it’s impossible to separate mental health concerns from substance use; one can cause or exacerbate the other.

Overall, about 1 in 4 people with a serious mental health disorder also experience a substance use disorder (SUD). Considering how often veterans face mental health challenges, it’s not a far reach to expect that many may also be predisposed to developing addictions more frequently and severely.

Trauma can fuel addiction’s fire

As a mental health concern many veterans experience, trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) often play a crucial role in addiction. Recent estimates suggest that up to 20-29% of veterans who have served in post-Vietnam eras experience PTSD at some point in their lives.

What’s more, some 40% of people with PTSD also live with a substance use disorder, meaning veterans who have experienced trauma may be likelier than others to face addiction. 

Veterans may have unique needs and experiences

Things like physical injury, job instability, and financial limitations may disproportionately affect veterans, making it challenging to receive proper treatment as needed. Facilities not tailored to veterans may fail to address their needs and create an environment that fosters healing.

Our Options For Drug Addiction Treatment for Veterans

To support as many people seeking drug addiction treatment for veterans as possible, we’ve created multiple programs covering several care levels. We work with each client to determine the best treatment plan for their needs so they can receive adequate support and guidance.

We offer treatment options such as our:

Outpatient Program

This is our least intensive treatment option and is ideal for those at the end of their recovery journey. Clients can regularly engage in therapy while remaining free to return home and engage in their regular responsibilities, such as work, school, and community roles. We help ease the transition back to daily life by providing consistent support, allowing clients to discuss their experiences, and offering additional resources as needed.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

As a step above our traditional outpatient program, our IOP engages clients in a more rigorous treatment plan that may require additional hours or sessions. This is typically best for clients who have completed a higher level of care but are not yet ready for general outpatient care.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Designed for those who have been hospitalized for addiction, our PHP is a stepping stone between constant supervision and a higher level of autonomy. Clients can participate in a variety of therapeutic interventions, receive medical care, and focus on preparing for recovery with the help of our expert staff.

Gender-Specific Treatment Programs

We offer both men’s-only and women’s-only addiction treatment for veterans to offer a sense of community to our clients. Addiction can affect people of different genders in unique ways, and finding connections with others who share similar experiences can unlock the doors to new ways to grow and heal from substance misuse.
