Our veterans and active military sacrifice a tremendous amount in the defense and protection of our country. Unfortunately, many experience unthinkable trauma that stays 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 have developed a military drug rehab program that helps veterans and active military cope with service-related trauma, addiction and mental illness.
Expert Treatment of Trauma-Related Mental Disorders
The lasting effects of trauma can manifest in a variety of destructive ways. We understand the difficulty that returning military 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:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Addiction and post-acute substance abuse
We offer customized, comprehensive military 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
Addiction is a common reaction to trauma, and has claimed too many of our returning servicemen and women. 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 expert medical 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 re-living it.
The Military Drug Rehab program offers numerous quality innovative treatment therapies, including:
- Depression recovery
- Anxiety management
- Trauma recovery
- Light-sound Neurotherapy
- Anger management
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
We also provide post-treatment support so patients stay focused on their recovery and maintain their mental health.

Infographic: Military Drug Rehab
This infographic uses data from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the National Institute on Drug Abuse to make the case that military drug abuse is a growing problem that is often left untreated or under-treated by service members who are reluctant to utilize treatment options such as rehab. It states that 7% of US veterans have a current substance use disorder and that these disorders are often made more difficult to overcome by specific issues such as co-occurring PTSD, depression, or traumatic brain injury. Prescription drug abuse is noted as a particular concern among military personnel who often become "hooked" on drug initially prescribed for physical injuries suffered in the field. In addition, the military's culture of "toughness" can often thwart the provision of care, with service members viewing treatment as something that brands them as "weak" in their own eyes and potentially those of their comrades and superiors as well.
