REHAB FOR MILITARY CONTRACTORS,
SOLDIERS & VETERANS

Many members of our armed forces have difficulty coping with trauma and stress when they return home from service. Anger management problems are common, as are alcohol abuse, substance abuse and even domestic violence. These problems often stem from the inability to process and cope with the continual trauma of military life (death, catastrophic events and serious injuries) and the difficulty readjusting to normal life when returning home.

Many soldiers report having difficulty sleeping, regulating their emotions or report reliving traumatic events over and over again. These are all common signs of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Trauma and stress actually change an individual’s brain physiologically and psychologically, and it’s important to find healthy ways to cope.

SUBSTANCE ABUSE IN THE MILITARY

Although abuse of illicit drugs is lower among members of the military than the general public, problematic use of alcohol, tobacco and prescription drugs is still relatively high. According to a 2008 Department of Defense Survey of Health Related Behaviors among Active Duty Military Personnel, 47 percent of active duty service members reported binge drinking in 2008—up from 35 percent in 1998. In 2008, 20 percent of military personnel reported binge drinking every week in the past month; the rate was considerably higher—27 percent—among those with high combat exposure.

THERAPY FOR MILITARY & VETERANS
WITH LASTING RESULTS

First Responders Recovery treats not only addiction, but the underlying mental and emotional issues that contribute to substance abuse. Starting at the root of the addiction is important because by doing that, we can confront any conflict, traumatic experience or cause and then the addiction and/or accompanying mental health disorder. Our team is experienced at diagnosing and treating co-occurring disorders as well. We help our clients break addiction and learn the coping mechanisms and health behaviors necessary to lead productive, successful lives without substances.

Did your loved one come back from serving in the military with an addiction or mental health problem? First Responders Recovery is your best option for effective treatment and recovery. Don’t hesitate to contact us with your questions or concerns about rehab for military servants and veterans.
