American Addiction Centers Steps In to Help Veterans Who Are Battling Addiction 

Many veterans who come back from deployment, unfortunately, have mental issues. It can be damaging to a person to have to leave their families and possibly go to war. For this reason, it is important for treatment centers to be available for veterans who need mental help or care for addiction.

Desert Hope Treatment Center has done something remarkable in honor of Military Appreciation Month. They have introduced a new program called Salute to Recovery Program.

This program is meant to help veterans who are battling addiction. This program is different from other treatment programs because it is centered on the difficulties that veterans have to endure. One of the main things they have to deal with is post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD. Read more: American Addiction Center Reviews | Glassdoor and American Addiction Centers | Crunchbase

One reason that veterans may not reach out is due to pride. They know that many people view them as heroes and do not want to represent in any other way. They may feel like they can move on without treatment; however, many veterans realize they cannot move on without it.

A study was done by American Addiction Centers, who is a partner with Desert Hope Treatment Centers, on veterans and their mental health. They found out that only fifty percent of veterans who need treatment actually seek help. An alarming sixty to eighty percent of Vietnam War veterans have some sort of alcohol abuse disorder.

A great thing about Desert Hope Treatment Center is that many veterans care will be taken care of through the Veterans Administration. Some veterans may be unaware of their mental health care bill could be covered. It is best to simply contact the center.

Desert Hope Treatment Center is a part of the American Addiction Steps family of treatment centers. They are known for helping with the inpatient and outpatient treatment for people dealing with substance abuse.

They help patients who are suffering from alcohol addiction, drug addiction, and mental and behavioral health issues. Their treatment centers are located all around the United States. If someone is dealing with a mental health issue or any kind of addiction, it is imperative for them to reach out for help to get the care they need.
