Proudly Caring for Veterans Badge

At Silver Sands Recovery, we feel it is our duty to help our nation’s heroes who are struggling with addiction and underlying issues. If you are a veteran, suffering from Addiction & Substance Abuse as well as underlying issues we are here to help you regain your life and long-term sobriety,

We salute your service and are here to serve you with addiction recovery solutions specific to your needs as a military veteran. Sacrifices often don’t end when you take off your uniform. Changes in the pace of life, environment, and status affect you as a veteran as you readjust into society after your service to the nation.

We know veterans experience lingering trauma, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, from long deployments, combat experiences, and post-deployment challenges. All of that can lead to substance use disorder and we can help!

Silver Sands Recovery is an addiction treatment center for veterans and a contracted community care provider for the Department of Veterans Affairs. The same facilities and treatment available to our patients with top-tier private health insurance is available to our veteran clients at little or no cost to them.

Veteran Addiction Recovery Center

The founder of Silver Sands Recovery Veteran Services is a veteran, and he takes a personal interest in every veteran that comes through our doors. We totally understand and appreciate the sacrifices involved in military service.

Ron retired from the U.S. Coast Guard, and while in the military, he served as the Command Drug and Alcohol Representative for three units. He understands what it means to help military brethren and is committed to providing veterans with personalized care and the service they deserve. As a disabled veteran and a VA patient himself, Ron has seen the impact addiction continues to have on the veteran community.

Our veterans’ services approach is a leading pillar of our recovery network and the Silver Sands team of specialized clinicians are well-versed in the realities of military life and here to support our veterans every step of the way on their road to reach long-term recovery goals.

Continuing Case Management

Continuing case management is a process that manages client wellness. This is done using communication, education, and assisting of services.

Expert case managers coordinate all aspects of on-going care after the patient is discharged. The case manager will organize all resources in the client’s home area. They work closely with families to educate them on the client’s options and ensure they have the appropriate care plan. Case managers are constantly networking and building relationships to ensure the patient is going home with proper resources and services.

Veterans and Substance Abuse

Approximately 11% of veterans are struggling with a substance use disorder. On average 17 service members take their own life every day, with many noting addiction as a significant contributing factor.

The more than 2 million active-duty members of the United States military are no strangers to physical and emotional challenges. Oftentimes, however, these conditions put them at risk for developing an alcohol or drug problem. Addiction can itself become a co-occurring disorder over time and be very difficult to recover from.

Alcohol and drug abuse are considerable threats to the well-being of veterans, many of whom report binge drinking on a monthly basis, and the rates of excessive drinking can be even higher among veterans who have had combat experience. Many service members return from duty with mental health concerns which can lead to or exacerbate substance abuse as well.
