Military & Veteran Drug Rehab

Our veterans and active military sacrifice a tremendous amount in the defense and protection of our country. Unfortunately, many experienced unthinkable traumas that stay with them forever and triggers long-term addiction and mental illness. This has a lasting negative impact on their health and quality of life. Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches recognizes the unique and enduring psychological impact that military personnel experience both during and after their service and has developed a military drug rehab program that helps veterans and active military cope with service-related trauma, addiction, and mental illness. 

Benefits of Veterans Detox Centers 

Drug detoxification, or detox, is the process of slowly weaning someone off drugs or alcohol. When a person becomes physically dependent on alcohol or drugs like stimulants, depressants, and narcotics, the body is unable to function normally without them. As a result, a person with physical drug dependence will begin to experience withdrawal symptoms in periods when they haven’t had the drug for a while. 

Withdrawals represent the brain’s attempts at resolving a chemical imbalance caused by drugs or alcohol. So, while the brain may remain docile or the person’s mood elevated while they’re on drugs, during withdrawal, chemicals that were suppressed and elevated suddenly shift, leading to psychological and physical symptoms. 

Withdrawals can be not only difficult, but dangerous to go through without medical support. Especially when it comes to quitting alcohol, benzos, or opioids, the cold-turkey method can be deadly. Some major benefits of medically supervised detox to consider include: 

  • Safety and comfort: At our rehab in Palm Beach, Florida, clients’ safety is our number one priority. All drug and alcohol detox programs at our facility are performed over several days to ensure patients are as comfortable as possible. Because our detox programs are medically monitored, clients may also receive medication assistance (as needed) to mitigate any withdrawals and, of course, ensure their safety and comfort throughout the detoxification process. 
  • Personalization: We understand that no two people are alike, so we make sure that each of our patients has a treatment plan that’s right for them. Especially considering how often veterans are diagnosed with co-occurring disorders, personalization is another benefit of the addiction and detox services offered at our rehab for veterans. 
  • Confidentiality: At Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, we treat drug and alcohol addiction in veterans from all walks of life and place our clients’ privacy at the top of our list of priorities. Because clients work with various specialists, therapists, and counselors at our facility, we understand the need and desire for privacy. Rest assured, the privacy of those who come to us for our veterans’ detox or addiction treatment programs will be kept strictly confidential. 
  • Higher chances of long-term success: In addition to the privacy, personalization, safety, and comfort that one can receive in medical detox versus at-home attempts, undergoing medically monitored withdrawal treatment also increases patients’ chances of moving forward in their treatment programs and remaining sober overall. 

Most patients usually start their treatment with medical detox. We offer detox for various substances, such as: 

  • Alcohol 
  • Benzodiazepines 
  • Cocaine 
  • Heroin 
  • Methamphetamine 
  • Opiates 
  • Prescription Drugs 

Not only does this level of addiction treatment offer patients the comfort and support needed to safely overcome withdrawals, but it also sets them up for a successful recovery and reduces their chances of leaving rehab early and relapsing. 

What Is Residential Addiction Treatment? 

 Military members are often exposed to various stressors, like trauma, which most of the general public has never experienced. To cope with the aftermath of these incidents, many veterans turn to drugs or alcohol. With all this in mind, it’s understandable why the need for residential treatment programs for veterans is so high. Residential treatment for addiction refers to live-in health care for substance use disorders and mental health disorders. While some people may benefit from receiving treatment in outpatient settings, people with more severe or long-term cases of addiction or mental illness might require treatment in an inpatient setting. 

Our veterans’ residential services are designed to offer clients a safe and comfortable space where they can recover free from distractions. As a live-in level of care, our residential rehab provides 24-hour care to help clients achieve and maintain recovery from their disorders. These programs can offer a wide range of services that are more likely to aid clients in developing skills and tools needed to stay sober and in recovery long after treatment is completed. 

Benefits of Veterans Residential Facilities 

Our inpatient rehab for veterans offers certain types of benefits that other forms of care may not always offer. What’s more, as a facility that offers a Veterans in Recovery program designed specifically for servicemen and women, clients can find specialized care that meets their needs at BHOPB. 

Benefits of veterans’ inpatient rehab include: 

  • The ability to detox from drugs and alcohol in a safe and secure environment that offers 24/7 care and support. 
  • The ability to work through substance abuse issues, codependency, co-occurring disorders, and trauma in a safe and secure environment. 
  • The ability to engage in various support groups and work with therapists in unique programs and therapies. 
  • A tight-knit community in which clients can learn from and motivate each other in recovery. 

 Despite the various benefits of residential addiction treatment, all levels of addiction care prove beneficial for those wishing to recover from substance abuse, co-occurring disorders, and mental illness.  

When treatment is customized to meet the specific needs of the individual, they’re more likely to recover both physically and psychologically from substance use. Residential treatment facilities for veterans like ours that offer evidence-based modalities and therapies offer clients a fighting chance at achieving long-term sobriety. 

Military Drug Rehab and Trauma-Related Mental Disorders  

The lasting effects of trauma can manifest in a variety of destructive ways. We understand the difficulty that returning military personnel experience when trying to transition back into a normal life, and offer specialized care for patients suffering from a diverse range of mental disorders triggered by trauma, including: 

We offer customized, comprehensive military and veteran drug rehab that enables patients to manage trauma-related stress in a safe and psychologically healthy fashion and allows them to work toward re-integration into their families and the outside world. 

Repairing the Damage of Trauma-Related Drug and Alcohol Addiction 

Many veterans come home to find that they’re unable to relate to the world around them and turn to drugs and alcohol as a method of coping. We combine medically monitored detox, personalized psychological counseling, and an individualized selection of treatment therapies to help you manage your trauma without resorting to chemical dependency. It is our goal to help patients live with their trauma without constantly reliving it. 

The veteran drug rehab program offers numerous quality innovative treatment therapies, including: 

We also provide post-treatment support so patients stay focused on their recovery and maintain their mental health.
