Salute to Recovery Program
The Salute to Recovery program enables Desert Hope Treatment Center to provide a specialized program dedicated to providing solutions on the distinct challenges that veterans face and assisting them on their way to recovery.
Desert Hope Treatment Center chief executive officer Ambrozino Storr said that they want the veterans to feel that it took a massive amount of courage to reach out to others. The CEO added that the Desert Hope Treatment Center would like them to know that they consider it as an honor and privilege to provide for them a safe place where they could find healing and hope.
Storr understands that most veterans have a lot of pride and being vulnerable could be very challenging on their part considering that they are perceived as heroes by the society.
The American Addiction Centers, the parent company of Desert Hope Treatment Center conducted research on the veterans’ state of substance abuse and mental health. The research reveals that only 50 percent of service members returning from the field actually sought treatment of their mental health.
Around 60 percent to 80 percent of Vietnam war veterans were diagnosed with alcohol abuse disorder. Over 4 in 5 veterans cited physical or mental limitations are reasons for their inability to work following their service in the military. As a designated Veterans Choice Provider, Desert Hope Treatment Center could have the veterans care charged to the Veterans Administration. In fact, most of the staff who lead the Salute to Recovery programs are veterans themselves. Read more: American Addiction Center Reviews | Glassdoor and American Addiction Centers | Crunchbase
