Veteran & First Responder Rehab Program
The professional lives of first responders and military service members are unique. The act of doing the job may result in violence, injury, trauma, or grief. In sacrificing so much to help others, our nation’s heroes are too often left with few resources to help themselves. That’s why we’re here to provide quality addiction and co-occurring disorder treatment for Veterans and first responders.
AdCare’s Salute to Recovery program is open to both Veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces and to first responders (both current and retired), including:
- Emergency medical services providers.
- Emergency dispatchers.
- Police officers.
- Correctional and probation officers.
AdCare is in the VA’s network of community care providers. When a Veteran is unable to get the necessary treatment they need through the VA, they may be eligible to attend a care facility outside of the VA through the community care program.
Veterans eligible to receive community care through the VA may be able to come to an AdCare facility for treatment and have their care paid for by the VA. For questions, please call .
We’ve tailored our program, which is focused on post-traumatic growth and wellbeing, to fit your experience and support your recovery. Our treatment includes:
- Co-occurring disorder treatment.
- Trauma groups.
- Behavioral therapy.
- Trauma-based therapies.
- 12-Step groups.
- Pain management.
- Coping skills.
- Relapse prevention strategies.
- Emotional regulation strategies.
- Nutrition guidance.
- Recreational and alternative therapies.
- Aftercare planning.
Every member of our team is dedicated to the successful recovery of each service member who comes to us for care. Our staff of professionals includes veterans and personnel trained in military culture, allowing for stronger understanding of each veteran’s specific needs.
We are passionate about the lifelong recovery of Veterans and first responders whose lives have been impacted by substance abuse and mental health issues such as PTSD.
The rate of Veteran suicide—an average of 22 per day in the U.S.—is tragically high. We want to lower that number by extending the best addiction treatment and co-occurring disorder care to these communities. And as an authorized community care provider, we can offer necessary, lifesaving treatment to Veterans who may not be able to receive it with the VA.

How to Utilize Veteran & Active Military Benefits for Rehab
Although you may have some out-of-pocket deductibles or co-pays costs, you can count on VA benefits to handle a portion of the costs. You can also stack your benefits if you have insurance coverage through private health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, or TRICARE. Learn more
