Drug & Alcohol Rehab for Veterans

Phoenix Rising Recovery is a rehab center in Palm Springs, California that specializes in providing rehab services for veterans. Our center understands the unique challenges that veterans face when it comes to substance abuse and addiction, and we have tailored our programs to meet the specific needs of veterans.

Veterans and Substance Abuse

It’s no secret that veterans are at a higher risk of developing substance abuse issues than the general population. The Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that 20% of veterans who served in Afghanistan and Iraq have substance abuse problems. A study conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) found that veterans were more likely than non-veterans to use multiple substances, including tobacco, alcohol, and illicit drugs. Furthermore, veterans who experience combat-related trauma are at a higher risk for developing substance abuse problems.

It’s important to note that these statistics are just general trends, and every individual’s experience is unique. However, suppose you are a veteran struggling with substance abuse. In that case, knowing you are not alone is important. There are specialized rehabilitation centers like Phoenix Rising Recovery that can help you overcome addiction and provide you with the support you need to build a better future.

What is Drug & Alcohol Rehab for Veterans Like?

Drug and alcohol rehab for veterans is a specialized form of treatment that considers the unique experiences and challenges that veterans face. At Phoenix Rising Recovery, our rehabilitation program for veterans includes a combination of therapy, counseling, and support groups. We also provide holistic treatments such as yoga and meditation to help veterans find balance and peace. Additionally, we have a staff of therapists with experience working with veterans and a strong connection with local veterans organizations.

Benefits of Rehab for Veterans

Rehabilitation, specifically tailored to the needs of veterans, offers several benefits for those struggling with addiction. Some of the most significant benefits include the following:

  • A Safe and Supportive Environment: Rehab centers provide a safe and secure environment where veterans can focus on their recovery without the distractions and triggers of their daily lives. This can be important for veterans who have experienced trauma and need a place where they can feel safe and supported.
  • Evidence-Based Treatment: Rehab centers offer evidence-based treatment programs that have been proven effective in helping individuals overcome addiction. These programs may include individual and group therapy, medication-assisted treatment, and holistic therapies like yoga and meditation.
  • Peer Support: Rehab centers provide veterans with the opportunity to connect with other veterans who are also in recovery. This can be incredibly powerful, as veterans often find that they can relate to and support each other in ways that others cannot.
  • Aftercare Support: Rehab centers also offer aftercare support to help veterans maintain their recovery after they leave the center. This can include ongoing therapy, support groups, and other resources to help veterans stay on track.
  • Addressing Co-Occurring Conditions: Rehab centers also address co-occurring conditions such as PTSD and other mental health issues that veterans may have.
  • Addressing specific challenges: Rehab centers that specialize in helping veterans understand and address the unique challenges that veterans may face in their recovery, such as re-adjustment to civilian life, dealing with combat-related trauma, and accessing veterans’ benefits.

Rehabilitation centers like Phoenix Rising Recovery can provide veterans with the support, resources, and evidence-based treatment they need to overcome addiction and build a better future.

How Can Veterans Pay for Rehab?

There are several options available to veterans who are seeking to pay for rehab, including:

  • Veterans Affairs (VA) Benefits: Many veterans are eligible for VA benefits that can be used to pay for rehab.
  • Health Insurance: Some health insurance plans cover the cost of rehab.
  • Private Pay: Some veterans may choose to pay for rehab out of pocket.

TriWest Healthcare Alliance is a provider of healthcare services for veterans, and they offer several options for veterans seeking to pay for rehab. At Phoenix Rising Recovery, we are proud to accept TriWest insurance as a form of payment for our rehabilitation services. Suppose you are a veteran covered by TriWest and are looking for help with substance abuse or addiction. In that case, our center can provide you with the support and resources you need to overcome your addiction and build a better future.

To use TriWest insurance to pay for rehab at Phoenix Rising Recovery, veterans will need to contact TriWest to verify their coverage and obtain authorization for treatment. Or, veterans can visit our insurance verification page to check and see which programs are covered. Our center will work with TriWest and our veterans to ensure that their insurance benefits are maximized and that their treatment is being covered.

Additionally, veterans covered by TriWest insurance can also take advantage of our aftercare support program to ensure they have the ongoing support they need to maintain their recovery.

It’s important to note that every insurance plan is different, and veterans should contact TriWest directly to understand their coverage and any out-of-pocket expenses they may have.
