Veterans Drug and Alcohol Rehab Center

Military members and veterans have to contend with a great deal of stress from their everyday careers and deployments and the military culture. It is common for veterans to struggle with substance abuse disorders or mental health disorders. In fact, over ten percent of veterans are diagnosed with substance abuse disorders, and men are diagnosed more often than women.

  • Half of military personnel won’t get help for mental health disorders because they think it will hurt their career. 
  • Ten percent of veterans who attend inpatient programs at a veterans drug and alcohol rehab center do so for heroin.
  • Most veterans have issues with chronic pain and end up abusing opioids to self-medicate. 
  • Alcoholism is a serious issue among enlisted and veterans. 

If you are struggling with substance abuse or mental health disorders, and you are a veteran or have a veteran in your home, consider finding Cincinnati drug rehab for veterans specifically so that they can participate in recovery with individuals who have gone through similar things and can understand the culture and lifestyle of being enlisted.

A Continuum of Care at Our Veterans Drug
and Alcohol Rehab Center

  • Detox
  • Residential treatment
  • PHP
  • IOP
  • Outpatient treatment
  • Sober living
Which Level of Addiction Treatment for Veterans is Right?

When is it right to consider a partial hospitalization program or a residential program? IOPs or outpatient care? If you are fully independent and capable of getting yourself to and from a facility and you are willing and able to commit yourself to the time required, partial hospitalization programs or intensive outpatient programs might be a good step toward your recovery. If you prefer to move away from your current environment and have full-time accountability and support, our residential level of care might be the best place to start, after which you can move to a lower level of care.

Safe Environment

It’s important that you choose an inpatient or residential level of care if you don’t have a safe living environment. If you have a safe living environment free from drugs and alcohol, you can consider participating in a partial hospitalization, intensive, or traditional outpatient program. This can be a home you occupy yourself, a home you share with family, or even a sober living facility. It’s important that you have a supportive community and home environment where the people around you want you to succeed.

Note: If there is domestic abuse, violence, or addiction in the home, you should strongly consider reaching out for alternative forms of help and for an inpatient program thereafter.

If, for example, you live in a home with other users, that may not be the best option for you. Similarly, if you have family members who are unsupportive of your decision to get help, you may need to step away and use an inpatient program.

Cedar Oaks Cincinnati Drug Rehab for Veterans: What Therapy to Expect

Many veterans benefit from PTSD addiction treatment for veterans, in large part because of the sense of community and support received from like-minded individuals. Our Cincinnati addiction treatment center for veterans specializes in individual and group therapy sessions for those who have served. 

Many clients benefit from luxury services provided in comfortable, natural environments. With Cedar Oaks Wellness Center, clients are able to focus on their recovery while connecting with others across our vast one-hundred-and-twenty-acre facility.

During your initial assessment, we will help you determine what programs are a good fit and provide a regular individual and group therapy session schedule. Depending on the level of care you receive, you might choose to reside full-time at our treatment center and participate in your recovery full-time or visit our veteran’s drug and alcohol rehab center a few days per week to complete your therapy.

Many forms of therapy might benefit veterans and military personnel the most. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, DBT, is a branch of CBT with high success rates. In fact, some articles indicate that participation in DBT can reduce your need for ongoing care or additional medication for substance abuse or mental health disorders by up to ninety percent. 

What CBT Can Do

  • Find a balance between accepting things you cannot control and changing things you can
  • Learn new coping skills
  • Deal with suicidal thoughts

Dialectical behavioral therapy is similar to cognitive behavioral therapy, except it focuses more on being mindful, learning to regulate your emotions, especially extreme emotions, and accepting temporary, uncomfortable thoughts or emotional patterns.

It was originally intended to treat borderline personality disorder among those who were experiencing suicidal thoughts, but today has much wider applicability and success in mental health and addiction treatment.

What DBT Can Treat 

  • Bipolar disorders
  • PTSD
  • Mood disorders
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Borderline personality disorders
  • Substance abuse

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy are designed to work exclusively with individuals with PTSD

What EMDR Can Do

  • Replace adverse responses to traumatic memories with positive alternatives

EMDR is the most common PTSD treatment used by the military. It has gained popularity over the last several years because it allows clients to recall the details of traumatic events while a trained therapist helps to change eye movements which alter the way those memories are perceived and stored in the brain.

This is a sound alternative to traditional talk therapy for many clients because it doesn’t necessitate speaking in detail about the traumatic event but rather simply remembering it.

What EMDR Can Treat

  • PTSD
  • Trauma related to mental health or substance abuse

Exposure therapy is an offshoot of CBT. In a controlled setting, a therapist will work with you to learn what your triggers are. Once you identify triggers, additional appointments are set aside to help you learn how to control your anxiety or prevent rituals in response to these triggers.

What Exposure Therapy Can Do

  • Learn triggers for anxiety
  • Avoid rituals or anxiety despite triggers

Exposure therapy is used for specific treatments, including OCD, phobias, and PTSD. Working to control responses to triggers in the therapy setting provides a safe place to practice these skills until clients are able to use them in real life.

What Exposure Therapy Can Treat

  • OCD
  • PTSD
  • Phobias

Holistic Therapy at Cedar Oaks Veterans Drug and Alcohol Rehab Center

When you receive mental health disorders or substance abuse treatment, your program will be customized to your needs. However, it will likely include some form of talk therapy, individual and group sessions as you progress, and holistic therapy.

There are many forms of talk therapy, just as there are many forms of holistic treatment, each of which can be used for specific circumstances.

Equine Experience

Research indicates that animal-assisted therapy can be particularly effective when treating substance abuse and PTSD. As veterans are statistically most likely to struggle with PTSD, trauma, and co-occurring substance abuse disorders, equine therapy can benefit many clients. At our facility, equine therapy allows clients to step outside the traditional therapist’s office and facilitate an open discussion about their feelings or goals while caring for and interacting with horses. The physical act of caring for another being and connecting with it can also help with mental health disorders, particularly anxiety and depression.

Cedar Oaks Wellness remains the only addiction recovery facility in the area offering an equine program. Our program works with a local YMCA facility, Camp Kern, to offer 90-minute sessions to patients interested in this recovery model.
