You’ve fought for your country in foreign lands. But sometimes, a different battle follows you home. If you’re a veteran struggling with substance use, there’s hope.

A veterans rehab program can help you find the joy in life again. If you feel trapped in an endless cycle of substance use and despair, we are ready to help. Reach out to Vertava Health of Mississippi Outpatient at 888.498.2376 to speak with one of our knowledgeable admissions counselors.

How Our Veterans Drug Rehab Helps

At Vertava Health of Mississippi Outpatient, we maintain a focus on evidence-based treatment for veterans with addiction. Comprehensive and evidence-based treatment options give you the best chance of long-term recovery, so we offer a range of different options for treatment and therapy:

The connection between veterans and substance abuse is an unfortunate one. We see you as more than just someone with a substance use disorder who needs to be treated. Vertava Health of Mississippi Outpatient also offers a suite of holistic therapies to help heal your mind, body, and spirit. Holistic therapies we offer include:

  • Music therapy
  • Yoga therapy
  • Nutritional counseling

We’re proud to be more than just a veterans drug rehab—we strive to help you rediscover hope and start moving toward a new, better life.

A Continuum of Care

If you have a substance use disorder, you need more than just residential treatment to help you move toward long-term recovery. Continued support helps you ease back into regular life while benefiting from professional and community support.

We offer a complete continuum of care that includes the following:

  • Medical detox – A program to help you safely remove drugs and alcohol from your system
  • Intensive outpatient treatment – An intensive outpatient program to help you learn to lead a life without drugs and alcohol
  • Day program – A partial hospitalization program builds upon what you learned in inpatient treatment
  • Group therapy – A step-down program where you continue to receive care as you begin to navigate the world on your own

While it is not technically part of treatment, we also have a robust alumni program for veterans who have completed treatment with us. This program lets you connect with other veterans with addictions who are now in recovery. With this supportive community, you can help yourself avoid becoming another statistic on veterans and drug abuse.

The Veterans Support Program Difference

If you attend any rehab for a substance use disorder, you’ll find commonalities with other people there. However, veterans with addiction have their own struggles that other clients may not be able to relate to.

At Vertava Health of Mississippi Outpatient, we offer a veterans support program to help you connect with, support, and learn from fellow veterans struggling with substance use. A supportive community is critically important for anyone battling a substance use disorder, and many clients stay connected through our alumni program even after they’ve left.

Our veterans support program also includes skilled clinicians who have extensive experience working with veterans. The conversation on veterans and substance abuse often misses the fact that many veterans struggle with untreated PTSD and other mental health disorders. Our clinicians will help you manage co-occurring disorders while healing the scars left by combat.
