Like many other veterans, you may suffer or know someone suffering from depression, PTSD, substance abuse, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and other mental health barriers. The rampant homeless problem in this country includes the enormous number of untreated veterans who have opted out of the VA healthcare system, if in fact they ever engaged in it. Taken in part or in its entirety, this is UNACCEPTABLE. The Integrated Recovery Foundation is committed to serving those who have served us and we believe it is our fundamental obligation. We offer an integrated approach to treatment that encompasses the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions for each individual.
what we treat
military sexual trauma
Research reveals that 25% of all women who serve have been sexually assaulted. 80% refuse to disclose the assault for fear of retaliation. Equally shocking, an equal number of male veterans report being sexually assaulted while serving. There is no event that derails a healthy path in life more than sexual assault. At Integrated Recovery, we address these challenges with a gender specific program designed for the sexually assaulted.
Events such as combat, sexual assault or other military experiences can be traumatic. Moreover, many individuals often bring previous traumas and mental health challenges prior to their military service. Oftentimes, such conditions are masked with substance abuse. With a thorough assessment, we help identify each of the challenges which may be co-occurring with the PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
be it substance abuse or other mental health challenges.
It’s not unusual for veterans to deal with pain occurring from service which further compounds the presenting problem of an injury. Many veterans become dependent on alcohol and substances as a means of coping with pain from an injury sustained while serving. The dependence may have unwittingly started from an appropriately prescribed medication which progressed to inappropriate use of the substance.
No profession is at greater risk to trauma than our military. Events, such as combat, sexual assault or other experiences can be traumatic. The typical response from these professions is: “suck it up, box it up, move on.” Moreover, many individuals often bring previous traumas and mental health challenges prior to their service experience. Oftentimes, such conditions are masked with substance abuse. With a thorough assessment, we help identify each of the challenges which may be co-occurring with the PTSD, be it substance abuse or another mental health barrier.
