Veterans Recovery Resources is different. It is a 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, to 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.
Mental health disorders are complex illnesses that affect the brain. Millions of people experience substance use disorders and other mental illnesses at the same time. These co-occurring illnesses complicate a person’s mental health, but comprehensive treatment can help people recover from addiction and cope with other mental health problems. Our dual-diagnosis program will treat the whole person, offering the highest quality, evidence-based approaches to treatment for those suffering from substance abuse, post-traumatic stress, 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 in their recovery communities over the long-term.
Using an inter-disciplinary approach, we help accelerate Veteran well-being. The link between medical health and mental health is well documented. Our medical team helps to see that Veterans are not overprescribed conflicting medications and offers alternative methods for chronic pain management, including physical and occupational therapies. Our team of psychologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, social workers and family counselors works with each individual to establish a personal plan of care, according to their values and goals. Veterans Recovery Resources offers a comprehensive continuum of care, combining physical and mental health that leads Veterans back to the productive lives they seek.
