Veterans in Recovery at Clearbrook Treatment Centers
Our Massachusetts treatment center understands how prevalent addiction is among veterans. Many individuals who have returned from being deployed have turned to alcohol and drugs to cope with the trauma and mental hardships they’ve experienced. Those who have fought for our country are among those individuals whose mental health suffers most greatly as a result. Our Veterans in Recovery program at Clearbrook Massachusetts is meant to aid veterans and their families in recovering from the physical and mental impact of addiction.
Substance Abuse Treatment for Veterans
Our rehab program for veterans offers addiction treatment specifically designed to each veteran’s needs. However, we know that the impact of substance abuse isn’t limited to the individual, which is why our program also incorporates support for our patients’ loved ones.
Benefits of our addiction treatment for veterans include:
- A safe escape from temptations
- A calm place to recover
- Education about addiction and mental health
- Individual and group therapy options
- Assistance in transitioning back into society
- Life skills training
- Addiction counseling
- Supervised outdoor activities
Rehab Programs for Veterans
The first step for patients in our veterans’ rehab program is usually a medical detox. This is a form of treatment in which patients are weaned off of drugs or alcohol under the medical supervision of our team to ensure our patients’ health and safety. Drug withdrawal symptoms occur when a person who’s addicted to drugs or alcohol suddenly quits or significantly reduces the doses they take. When unmonitored or when detox is attempted at home, these symptoms can be dangerous and even life-threatening. Not only do our detox programs help patients safely withdraw from drugs, but they also help them better manage their cravings.
Our residential treatment program is a form of inpatient drug treatment that requires patients to live onsite. This form of treatment separates patients from any temptations or people in their day-to-day lives that may have aided or contributed to their addiction. This program is designed to help patients recover from their disorders without the interruption of any distractions.
Substance-Specific Addiction Treatment
Our substance abuse treatment in Veterans in Recovery also includes individualized treatment programs for substances like:
- Bath Salts
- Prescriptions Drugs
- Synthetic Marijuana
Out of the many forms of addiction among veterans, prescription drug abuse is the most common. Veterans who receive the help of our drug and alcohol addiction treatment in Massachusetts can overcome the physical and psychological challenges of addiction and learn how to stay sober for the long haul.
Faith-Based Addiction Treatment at Clearbrook
Along the recovery journey, we have a non-denominational Christ-centered, faith-based programming for patients interested in a spiritual approach to recovery. Patients will be guided to restoring, or establishing, their faith and creating a relationship with God through our Faith In Recovery programs.
At Clearbrook Massachusetts, we are committed to creating a safe space for our veterans as well as their loved ones. We know that substance abuse impacts the individual on a larger scale, often breaking relationships and damaging the family dynamic. Our family program offers support for the loved ones of addicts in recovery, including individual and group therapy sessions, to promote healing within the family as a whole.
Our addiction treatment specialists understand that addiction is as much mental as it is physical. Oftentimes, it’s veterans’ mental health struggles that lead them to use drugs and alcohol. To better help the servicemen and women in our care, we offer various methods of drug therapy, including:
Once veterans have completed at least one of our programs, they then have the option to join our alumni program. As you may have guessed, this program is designed to help individuals who have “graduated” from one of our levels of substance abuse treatment and wish to receive additional help for relapse prevention. Alumni in this program will have the benefit of meeting other people in the recovery community and making connections that will assist their sobriety.
At Clearbrook Treatment Centers Massachusetts, we offer and design specific programs for those who have served our country. We know that the trauma and combat veterans face during deployment isn’t easy on the mind and can contribute to harmful coping methods.
