holding hands at a substance abuse treatment centerTreatment for substance abuse issues shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all. For veterans and first responders, treatment must include care for mental health issues such as PTSD as well as medical care due to the trauma that those in this profession may experience on a daily basis. Our staff is trained to care for veterans and first responders and their unique needs.  At Mission Recovery, you’ll also find the support of others who have served. In group therapy, such as our 12-step programs, you will be able to talk through your experiences with others who have walked similar paths. The transition from the military to civilian life can be stressful. Additionally, it can be challenging to deal with past trauma after leaving the military. However, at our substance abuse treatment center in Fort Worth, TX, we help veterans and first responders begin your recovery and start to rebuild your life.

What is a Substance Abuse Treatment Center?

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the most effective substance abuse treatment programs address both addiction and underlying physical or mental health conditions. Short-term residential programs like our substance abuse treatment center can provide intensive care quickly. These programs can also help to reduce the risk of relapse upon leaving the residential setting.

At Mission Recovery, we offer a range of treatment options and programs. Every individual’s experience with substance abuse is different, so their treatment plan needs to be personalized as well. At Mission Recovery, we offer the following programs:

Our Substance Abuse Treatment Center in Fort Worth, TX

The first step in overcoming an addiction is admitting that there is an addiction problem. Following this, the next step is to safely detox from the substances abused and allow the brain and body to recover at a drug and alcohol detox center. A personalized, professionally managed detox program is the foundation for achieving meaningful and lasting sobriety. We provide medically-supervised detox while you rest in a private, comfortable environment.

Detoxification from alcohol, heroin, and prescription drugs like painkillers or benzodiazepines requires specialized medical expertise. The medical team in our drug and alcohol detox program safely supports each client while they go through the withdrawal process. Abusing drugs and alcohol takes a physical toll on the body that can create additional medical conditions, such as anxiety and depression. These can be treated under our care as well.

Many veterans and first responders who struggle with substance abuse also have mental health problems. Co-occurring disorders actually make it more likely that an individual will become addicted. And for those who have served in the military or serve as first responders, PTSD leads to stress and anxiety that alcohol, opioids, or other drugs can temporarily fix. However, the long-term consequences of abusing these substances can be severe and even dangerous. At Mission Recovery, we address both mental health issues as well as the medical effects of substance abuse through individual and group therapy.
