Drug and alcohol abuse is a common problem for Navy veterans. In fact, one in 10 veterans struggles with a substance use disorder — a rate higher than that of the general population. The Recovery Village is here to help if you’re in that boat.

The Recovery Village offers Navy veteran rehab programs explicitly tailored to your needs as a former sailor. We know you’ve likely had unique experiences on the seas contributing to your current drug or alcohol abuse, and our experienced and caring clinicians will help you work through them so you can get on the road to recovery.

Treatment Programs for Navy Vets Suffering from Substance Abuse

Not self, but country. You’ve lived this motto your entire time in the Navy, giving all of yourself to defend our nation’s waters. Now that you’ve returned to civilian life, you may find it hard to focus on your needs again. It’s possible you’re even using drugs or alcohol to help yourself cope.

At The Recovery Village, our Navy veteran rehab offers top-of-the-line medical care to help you safely withdraw from whatever you’re using. We then provide holistic therapy and wellness programs that will treat your mind, body, and soul.

It’s time you put yourself first. Learn more about how our Navy veteran drug rehab centers can help you sail to safer waters by contacting our admissions team at 844-903-3524 today.

Alcohol Rehab Treatment Programs for Navy Veterans

It’s easy to start drinking if you’re feeling depressed. Before long, you may need a drink just to make it through the day. Our Navy veteran alcohol rehab treatment can help you combat the feelings and emotions that are leading you to drink while also ease you through any withdrawal symptoms.

We know that every Navy veteran is different, and therefore, has different needs. For example, veterans who saw combat may be dealing with PTSD, while veterans stationed away from their families for three years might have depression. We tackle each individual’s issues head-on with customized treatment just for them.

Drug Rehab Treatment Programs for Navy Veterans

Navy veterans can start using drugs for a number of reasons. They might have suffered an injury and gotten prescription painkillers for it. Or maybe they just wanted to take away some of the stresses of military life. In many cases, drug use can start simultaneously with a mental health disorder. In these cases, the symptoms often fuel one another, making each worse.

However you started using, our Navy veteran drug rehab centers can be a useful tool in getting sober. At our facilities, you’ll get care from leading experts who understand what military life is like.

Drug & Alcohol Rehab for Active Navy Military Personnel

Sailing on open waters can sometimes get lonely, and alcohol or drugs can be a way to stay entertained. Historically, about 26% of Navy sailors engage in heavy drinking, compared to a rate of just over 15% for civilians. Before long, you may find you have an addiction.

In many cases, sailors start drinking or taking drugs to mask the symptoms of other mental health disorders, like depression or PTSD. Our Navy alcohol rehab centers treat both your co-occurring disorder and substance abuse at the same time so you can make a more thorough recovery.

Inpatient Residential Rehab for Navy Members and Their Families

For many Navy veterans, the best way to approach a substance abuse disorder is to tackle it head-on with inpatient residential treatment. Research suggests the most effective way to treat addiction is with a long-term program of about three months in length. This is likely because staying in treatment longer gives you more time to change the patterns of thought that led to your addiction. Think of it as a mini deployment at sea, just with all the comfort and support of a full clinical staff.

At The Recovery Village, you’ll live at our facility while undergoing treatment so you can receive 24/7 care. We tailor your treatment plan specifically to your needs as a veteran. Our professionals offer evidence-based approaches, including one-on-one and group therapy with other veterans. That way, you’ll be able to share your struggles with people who will understand exactly where you’re coming from.

Inpatient Alcohol & Drug Rehab for Navy Family Members

Veterans aren’t the only ones who can struggle with addiction. In many cases, family members use drugs or alcohol to cope with a sailor’s long absence or a strained relationship upon a veteran’s return. The Recovery Village also has drug and alcohol rehab programs that can help the loved ones of Navy members. If possible, you’ll be grouped with other military spouses or loved ones to help you find camaraderie as you recover.

VA Benefits, Health Insurance and Financial Assistance for Navy Veterans

Navy veterans using their VA benefits will be pleased to know that their substance abuse treatment shouldn’t cost them a thing. That’s because the VA covers all substance use rehab, including medically managed detox, residential care, and outpatient treatment. As long as you’re receiving treatment from the VA Community Care Network — of which The Recovery Village is a part — then your rehab will be covered at 100% with no out-of-pocket costs.

Private health insurance should also cover Navy veteran rehab programs because of the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act. It requires insurance companies to provide the same benefits for substance abuse treatment as they do for medical care. Whatever insurance you have, don’t let it all deter you. Our admission counselors are here to help answer your questions and take care of all the paperwork so you don’t have to.
