Veterans Recovery Resources is different. It is a new, community-based program designed specifically for veterans, by veterans. The goal? To provide therapy and treatment options for veterans in crisis, regardless of their ability to pay for services–and ultimately, foster a vibrant community of veterans–and their families–who support each other over a lifetime.
By removing the barriers to treatment for substance abuse disorders and mental health care, Veterans Recovery Resources will provide a compassionate and caring recovery program for veterans and their families.
Our dual-diagnosis program will treat the whole person, offering the highest quality, evidence-based approaches to treatment for those suffering from substance abuse, PTSD, and mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI). Our programs will be delivered by culturally-competent professionals who understand the differences between the mental health issues experienced by military personnel compared to that of civilians. The problems veterans face are most often a result of the stressors of combat, moral injury, multiple deployments and separation from their families over time. Research shows that the rate of substance abuse, as well as mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, is much higher in service men and women.
We are also dedicated to supporting military families; the spouses, children and caregivers who also need help recovering from the impact of substance abuse or mental wellness issues. When military families can connect with other military families, it makes all the difference.
Veterans Recovery Resources will offer three core services: An in-patient residential program followed by a complementary after care program; an intensive out-patient program for those who do not need residential care; and a continually growing fellowship program to keep veterans healthy, productive and engaged over the long-term.
Our mission is to create a broad network of veterans and their families who support each other over a lifetime and extend the brother- and sisterhood they enjoyed while serving our country. Because the opposite of addiction? Is connection.
