Veterans have honorably served and sacrificed for this country. They deserve our respect and support. We owe them the high-quality care and benefits they have earned through their service. During their time in the military, some Veterans are subjected to the most intense experiences possible. The trauma that stems from these experiences can be disruptive even after they return home. For many Veterans struggling with addiction and mental health disorders, the two conditions are intertwined with the aftereffects of the trauma they have experienced. The good news is that with substance abuse treatment, Veterans can reclaim their lives, recover and start to rebuild.
Symetria Recovery’s rehab programs for Veterans provide comprehensive treatment that strives to serve every individual with competent, compassionate, and responsive addiction treatment in an environment that understands and supports the unique experiences of Veterans and their families.
Why Veterans and Addiction Require Specialized Care
Addiction occurs for many reasons. This may be due to stress or trauma. In some situations, mental health disorders contribute to it. Veterans are specifically at risk because of their unique experiences. You may benefit from treatment for substance abuse as a Veteran if you experience signs such as:
- Intense moments of reliving past trauma or having flashbacks
- Struggling with stress due to career choices, work complications, or day-to-day living
- You use drugs or alcohol because it helps to numb you to deal with stress
- Relationships are difficult, and you may not always want to talk about it
- Your use of drugs and alcohol is growing; you may be using in isolation or even on the job
Helping Veterans Overcome Stigma
Many veterans struggle with needing help for mental health disorders or addiction because they struggle with the stigma of seeking help. The stigma around seeking mental health support often leads thousands of people to live a life dependent on drugs. You don’t have to live in that place. Seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness. We are here for you.
At Symetria Recovery, we take specific steps to help minimize the discomfort you feel. We providing a safe, judgment-free place to talk. Your privacy is always protected, and we provide discreet support. Here, you never have to feel like you don’t belong.
Finding Support for PTSD and Substance Abuse
For those Veterans battling post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and substance abuse, help starts with dual diagnosis treatment. This type of treatment focuses on helping Veterans treat mental trauma and overcome addiction. Working on both at the same time is critical for minimizing the risk of relapse. In our treatment program, you’ll find respect, outstanding resources, and a dedication to our Veterans like no other.
