The Program

We believe the road to recovery is unique to each patient. Our treatment team understands that life in service can put individuals at high risk for developing substance use and mental health disorders, making it difficult to:
  • Manage a work/life balance
  • Protect against stress-related disorders
  • Identify the impacts on self and family
  • Connect with the emotions of others
  • Recognize the beginning stages of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
The Salute to Recovery program was created with these unique challenges in mind and is dedicated to military veterans and first responders whose lives have changed and become unmanageable due to substance use disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other mental health issues.
