The Coast Guard requires you to put your life on the line to defend our nation’s waterways and coasts. Whether you’re responsible for maritime law enforcement or defense operations, it’s not an easy job — especially if you’re dealing with dangerous international smugglers or failed search and rescue missions.

Because of the stress on your shoulders, you may have turned to drug or alcohol abuse to help ease some of your anxiety. If you’re struggling with addiction, The Recovery Village can help. We offer best-in-class, veteran-specific care catered specifically to your needs as a Coast Guard veteran.

Treatment Programs for Coast Guard Vets Suffering from Substance Abuse

Life in the Coast Guard is unlike that of any other branch of the military. That’s why The Recovery Village proudly offers coast guard veteran rehab programs just for Coast Guardsmen. At one of our Coast Guard veteran drug rehab centers, you’ll receive one-on-one and group therapy with other Coast Guard veterans. Our programs can help you find the root of your addiction, whether it’s post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or troubling readjusting to civilian life.

You’ve saved enough people during your career — now it’s your turn to accept some help. Allow The Recovery Village to assist you in one of the biggest battles of your life. Call us today at 855-202-1508 to speak with an admissions specialist and learn more about our Coast Guard veteran rehab programs.

Alcohol Rehab Treatment Programs for Coast Guard Veterans

Around 65% of veterans who enter a treatment program are seeking help for alcohol addiction. That’s why we offer a specific Coast Guard veteran alcohol rehab program. At one of our centers, you’ll receive top-of-the-line medical care whether you need medical detox or intensive therapy.

It’s not uncommon for many Coast Guard veterans to also come to us with a co-occurring mental health disorder, such as depression or PTSD. Serving in the Coast Guard likely took a toll on your mental health, and if you never addressed these issues, they could be fueling your desire to drink. Our Coast Guard veteran rehab programs will help you get to the bottom of things based on your unique experiences.

Drug & Alcohol Rehab for Active Coast Guard Military Personnel

Substance abuse is not a problem specific to veterans. Unfortunately, over one-third of servicemembers in the United States Armed Forces reported binge drinking during the previous 30 days, and 10% called themselves heavy drinkers. The Recovery Village offers drug and alcohol rehab programs specifically for active-duty Coast Guardsmen to help fight their substance misuse.

Additionally, around 10% of active-duty servicemembers met the criteria for post-traumatic stress disorder. Another 25% said they used mental health services in the last year. Struggling with mental health disorders might be one of the reasons you’re using. When this happens, it’s called a co-occurring disorder, and The Recovery Village can work with you to treat it hand-in-hand with your substance abuse.

Inpatient Drug Rehab Treatment Programs for Coast Guard Veterans

In some cases, Coast Guardsmen start taking prescription pain medication following an injury during deployment. However, because these medications can be highly addictive, they develop a dependence on them, finding it nearly impossible to get off them on their own. In other cases, you might have started taking drugs as a way to self-medicate your depression or PTSD symptoms. 

At our inpatient Coast Guard veteran drug rehab program, we’ll help you wean off whatever medication you’re taking and revise the patterns of thought that led to your addiction. Our treatment programs can also help you work through your mental health disorder concurrently.

Inpatient Residential Rehab for the Coast Guard and Their Families

Research shows that inpatient residential treatment success rates range from 68% to 71% for patients enrolled in a six-month program — which is higher than shorter treatment stays. Clearly, residential rehab is the right choice for most people.

With inpatient care, your day will be highly structured — much like your time in the Coast Guard. You’ll have a set schedule every day with evidence-based addiction treatment and personalized treatment plans. Much like with any injury, your body and brain need time to heal, and residential treatment at The Recovery Village gives you that opportunity.

Not only that, but at The Recovery Village, we offer special veteran therapy groups where you can share your issues with others who have had the same experiences as you. We’ve found this helps people open up more and gives them an opportunity to find companionship through shared hardships.

VA Benefits, Health Insurance and Financial Assistance for Coast Guard Veterans

Health insurance shouldn’t be something you worry about at one of the lowest points in your life. Luckily, your VA benefits cover substance abuse treatment in full, as long as you receive care from a qualifying facility. The Recovery Village is a part of the VA Community Care Network, so we’ll gladly accept your benefits as payment with no out-of-pocket costs.

If you have private insurance instead of VA benefits, you should also have coverage. The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act requires insurers to offer the same coverage for substance abuse care as they do for medical care. As long as we’re in network with your insurance, we can likely help with minimal costs.
