Military Addiction Treatment Program | VALOR

Specialized Military Addiction Treatment for Veterans & Active Duty

Every year, thousands of troops leave active duty service and become military veterans within their communities. The demands of military service, including the trauma of combat, may contribute to substance use among veterans. The state of Florida is home to more than 1,000,000 veterans. Riverside Recovery’s VALOR program is designed specifically with these men and women in mind.

Veterans Addiction Treatment

Help For Veterans

In addition to Riverside Recovery’s treatment program, VALOR clients attend weekly psychotherapy with a licensed therapist, addressing triggers, family dynamics, boundaries, and coping with emotional dysregulation. The individual therapist will aid the client in the development of distress tolerance skills to use in place of mind and mood altering substances.

We also empower clients to take control of their physical health. Clients benefit from our wellness initiative, including a full gym, pool, high-intensity interval training, yoga, water aerobics, and onsite physical therapy.

Riverside Recovery recognizes that addiction is often a family disease. The effects of substance abuse reach beyond the client. Research has shown that engaging family members in the recovery process will aid in improving client outcomes. In addition to regular individualized care, each client is eligible to participate in our family program, at any level of care.

RRT is proud to partner with ART International in providing successful treatment and support to our families.

Utilizing Military Benefits for Substance Use Disorder/Addiction Treatment

Riverside Recovery is currently In-Network with TRICARE and VA health insurance. TRICARE benefits can cover recovery services with prior authorization and determination for medical and psychological need. The VA provides eligible former members of the U.S. Armed Forces with treatment options for substance use disorders. The VA provides a wide range of services on an outpatient or inpatient basis through VA hospitals. Members enrolled in the VA healthcare system are eligible for these benefits.

We know that no single treatment is appropriate for everyone. That is why our admissions team does a thorough assessment of each individual to determine whether they’re suitable for the services offered at Riverside Recovery. Many individuals struggling with addiction may be uncertain about entering treatment and that is why we have a team available 24/7 to answer any questions, verify benefits or determine client eligibility.
