Tactical Recovery Program
We are honored to partner with the Department of Veterans Affairs Community Care Network and PsychArmor as a Veteran-Ready program that provides detox and residential treatment services to our nation’s military community.
Specialized Treatment for Veterans
While substance use and mental health treatment options are available, many individuals are reluctant to seek help because they don’t think treatment providers will understand their unique experiences and needs. And, it’s true – few addiction and mental health centers are genuinely qualified in understanding and treating Veterans. That’s why we created the Tactical Recovery program.
Wooded Glen Recovery Center provides trauma-informed care within a service-oriented culture, using evidence-based practices that have proven to be effective with Veterans. Wooded Glen also treats co-occurring mental health issues, such as PTSD and anxiety.
Substance Use Disorder Treatment
While alcohol and drug addiction can affect anyone, military and first responder communities are especially at risk for developing a substance use disorder. Through our specialized treatment program, individuals can recover from alcoholism and drug addiction, while building a solid foundation for lasting freedom.
Mental Health Treatment
Active military, Veterans, and first responders all face extreme stress both on duty and off. Long-lasting effects from these roles can include depression, anxiety, PTSD, and more. Our trauma-informed program meets the needs of this population completely, providing evidence-based treatment to assist individuals’ recovery.
About Tactical Recovery at Wooded Glen: Veterans Treatment Program
Residential Program for Veterans
In the Tactical Recovery residential program, every day is structured to provide intensive intervention and to educate, encourage, and empower each resident’s movement into recovery. Each day is full and designed to optimize the time we have with our clients and set them up for success when they leave. Clients can expect some combination of the treatment modalities below:
- Cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR, somatic experiencing, dialectical behavior therapy, experiential therapy, and 12-Step work
- Individual, group, and family programming.
- Psychiatric services, including medication management, if appropriate
- Substance use and co-occurring disorders education
- Daily process groups, mindfulness groups, and exercise and wellness activities
Relapse prevention groups, gender groups, life skills groups, nursing groups, and discharge planning groups
With a focus on mind, body, and spirit, the Tactical Recovery program offers compassionate, quality care in an atmosphere conducive to growth. Residents may have access to nature walks, fishing, equine and animal-assisted therapies, exercise equipment, basketball, volleyball, and other recreational activities, as well as yoga, meditation, and other holistic therapies.
When it comes to healing and recovery, everyone in the family unit should be included. After all, addiction and mental health issues affect the entire family. Let us help you and your family find hope, healing, and lasting recovery.
Our Family Support program is facilitated by a qualified counselor who has been trained to meet the needs of military and first responder families. We will help the family create realistic expectations for recovery through education and sharing in a safe, supportive environment. Education and discussion topics include codependency, boundaries, the 12 Steps, and self care.
Family members learn how they can best support the client when they leave treatment and begin their continued long-term recovery. This is an educational and transformative experience for the client and the entire family system.
