Our First Responder and Veterans Group emphasizes trauma-informed care, healthy coping skills, and the benefits of open communication. This group, which is led by a masters-level therapist and Veteran, provides an outlet for participants to share their story with others who have similar experiences, while our holistic approach tends to patients’ physical needs and overall wellbeing.
Our masters-level therapists, MDs, and aftercare coordinators work with patients each step of the way to address triggers and underlying emotions that may contribute to addiction, develop healthy skills and strategies, and create a plan for life after treatment.
