Healing Our Heroes:

Veterans Recovery Program for Mental Health & Substance Use

Veterans make great personal sacrifices that are difficult for civilians to truly comprehend. They spend long stretches of time separated from the ones they love doing dangerous, difficult work in service to our country. And those sacrifices can lead to lingering issues with mental health, PTSD, substance use, and other difficulties.

Many veterans find it difficult to get help for these issues because finding someone who really understands their unique struggles is so difficult. That’s why Healing Our Heroes Retreat Behavioral Health has built dedicated mental health and substance use treatment programs for veterans. We offer caring, compassionate treatment that takes into account the challenges that are unique to veterans and helps them overcome the problems that are holding them back from living their lives to their fullest potential.

Veteran Mental Health Facts

1 in 4 service members return from active duty with a mental health condition

This includes rates of PTSD that are 15x higher than those of civilians and rates of depression that are 5x higher than civilians.

As many as 20% of veterans are affected by PTSD

The Healing Our Heroes program specializes in mental health for veterans, addressing both individual mental health disorders and co-occurring disorders. This can be instrumental in helping veterans adapt to civilian life and secure a safe and healthy path to recovery.

More than 1 in 10 veterans has been diagnosed with substance use disorder

This is higher than the general population and is considered to be a significant driver of suicidality in the veteran community.

Comprehensive Help and Healing for Veterans

Retreat Behavioral Health offers a comprehensive veteran’s recovery program in Florida, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. Our mission is to provide compassion, respect, and acceptance to those individuals who have served in our armed forces and are struggling with substance use and/or mental health disorders. These programs, which include services for veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), consider veterans’ experiences and their most common challenges.

Retreat has worked with the veteran community for many years at each facility. In addition to specialized programs, we keep veterans on staff, so patients enjoy the added benefit of working with someone who understands their struggles firsthand.

From medically-monitored detox and residential rehabilitation to structured outpatient programs and holistic therapies, we provide a full continuum of care for treating substance use and PTSD in veterans. We have locations in Ephrata, PA, Palm Springs, FL, and New Haven, CT, and work with most commercial insurance companies, offering 24/7 admissions and complimentary transportation. Please note that our Connecticut facility only treats mental health disorders that are co-occurring with substance use disorders.

At Retreat, we pride ourselves in providing a compassionate and spiritual environment for veterans in recovery. We provide healing for veterans in a secure and comfortable setting overseen by a dedicated, caring, and professional staff, with treatment programs centered around veteran mental health needs.

Cutting-Edge Treatment & Mental Health Support for Veterans

Retreat Behavioral Health offers a comprehensive approach to mental health for veterans, including specific tracks that address common challenges for vets, like post-traumatic stress disorder and other trauma responses.

Individual and group therapy are cornerstones of our treatment programs, as are veteran-specific rehabilitation services and clinical modalities such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). When it comes to EMDR and PTSD in veterans, for example, we can help individuals process trauma and get relief from their symptoms, all in a safe and supportive environment that is conducive to ongoing care.

In addition to EMDR, we are proud to offer additional cutting-edge treatments such as BrainsWay transcranial magnetic stimulation, a non-invasive and medication-free approach to treating depression. Brainsway is available at our inpatient mental health facilities only. Each of our specialized programs offers dynamic, comprehensive mental health support for veterans in need of care, with modalities that are based on common issues or traits that some patients share.

What Our Veterans Recovery Program Includes

We also offer services for veterans’ family members, many of whom are often directly impacted by the mental health and substance use struggles of their loved one.

On-site staff includes expert psychiatrists, therapists and counselors, nurses, and medical professionals, who together make up a renowned care team ready to serve our patients. Each location also has veteran liaisons on staff who understand what our patients have been through and are ready and willing to work on helping each individual start a healthy new chapter in their life.

Compassionate care is a cornerstone of our approach to treating the mental health of veterans. Together, we can get you or your loved one on the path to a brighter and healthier future.

Support with VA Inpatient Mental Health Programs and Other Ongoing Needs

We are committed to supporting our veteran patients in any way possible. This includes customized treatment plans and ongoing help coordinating VA services and securing transitional housing. Throughout their stay at a Retreat facility, veterans will have access to a liaison who can provide additional resources and guidance and who has direct experience serving in the armed forces.

Our Treatment Facilities

Our veterans program is available at all of our inpatient treatment facilities: Lancaster County in Pennsylvania, Palm Beach County in Florida, and our South Connecticut facility. If you are a veteran seeking help or if you know a veteran who is struggling with these issues, please contact contact Healing Our Heroes Retreat Behavioral Health now for more information or to schedule an intake.

Important note:

The program in Connecticut does not primarily treat mental health. In Connecticut, we treat substance use disorders with co-occuring mental health disorders, but not mental health by itself.
