A Veteran’s Fight Against Substance Abuse

Military men and women bravely sacrifice their lives to protect the lives of others. On one hand, they are celebrated for their accomplishments and on the other, left to lead a life of struggle and hardships. 

What many fail to remember is the horror and strife our Veterans endure in battle. The memories they harbor can and often do last a lifetime. So, how can we help? Here at Ridgeview Ranch Addiction Treatment Center, we start by targeting the root of substance abuse and work on healing from within. 

Co-Occurring Disorders

According to the National Institute on Drug Use, “More than one in ten veterans have been diagnosed with a substance use disorder, slightly higher than the general population.” 

Often Veterans lean towards drugs and alcohol for comfort. Many experiencing co-occurring disorders such as PTSD and depression, which increases their risk of addiction. Ridgeview Ranch employs a number of specialized treatment programs designed to help Veterans get the help they need.  

Rehabilitation for Veterans

As one of a few Veteran-Approved Drug Rehabilitation Centers in Los Angeles, we understand the importance our services provide to the community. Every day, more and more people retire from the military with mental health issues they are accustomed to hiding. We challenge this dialogue in a warm and welcoming environment, teaching Veterans the core values of healthy living and sober decisions.
