Veteran Rehab Program Overview

Many Veterans and first responders have likely experienced events and traumas most civilians haven't. Our Mississippi addiction treatment facility offers a program—Salute to Recovery—that provides co-occurring disorder treatment specifically designed for Vets and first responders living with PTSD, anxiety, depression, and substance use disorders.

Veterans' Retreat

We've Created a Veterans' Retreat

We’ve set aside a space at our addiction treatment facility specifically for Veterans. This area is where you can relax and socialize with fellow Veterans. There are also group meetings for Salute to Recovery addiction treatment program held here so you are steps away from your classes.

Our Mission

Our Mission

Treatment for substance use and mental health disorders can be lifesaving. And when an estimated 17 Veterans die by suicide every day, that treatment is sorely needed. The Salute to Recovery program’s goal is to reach these Veterans and first responders where they are and help lead them on a path to sobriety and recovery.

Treatment for mental and substance use disorders is often just the first step, so we also work to make sure our patients are set up with the resources they need for success after leaving our program.

What We Offer

Our Salute to Recovery program isn’t a short-term fix—our addiction treatment team is dedicated to providing solutions and skills you can use for those hard moments during and after recovery.
