Drug & Alcohol Rehab for Veterans in New Jersey

Addiction Treatment Plans Designed for Military Veterans

Military veterans, heroes who have sacrificed so much for their country, often face unique challenges upon their return to civilian life. Many veterans find themselves vulnerable to mental health issues and addiction, a combination that can be especially difficult to overcome. At SOBA New Jersey, we understand the specific needs of veterans, and our dedicated Veterans Addiction Treatment Program is designed to provide tailored support.

Recovery is not just about overcoming addiction; it’s about rebuilding lives and fostering resilience. SOBA NJ’s program emphasizes life skills training, vocational support, and education to empower veterans for a successful future. Through job placement assistance, resume-building workshops, and skill development programs, we equip veterans with the tools they need to reintegrate into the workforce and regain their independence.

SOBA New Jersey is a top-rated drug and alcohol rehab in NJ that offers specific treatment programs tailored to the needs of active duty military and veterans. Contact our admissions team to learn more about how our addiction treatment programs in New Jersey can help.

Individualized Treatment Programs That Target Your Needs

Why Veterans Are Vulnerable to Mental Health and Addiction Issues

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Exposure to combat situations or traumatic events during military service can lead to PTSD, a mental health condition characterized by severe anxiety, flashbacks, and nightmares. Veterans suffering from PTSD often turn to substances to self-medicate and cope with their symptoms.
  • Transition Challenges: Reintegrating into civilian life can be overwhelming. Veterans may struggle to find employment, housing, and a sense of purpose, leading to feelings of isolation and hopelessness, which can contribute to substance abuse.
  • Chronic Pain and Injury: Many veterans suffer from chronic pain and injuries due to their service. Prescription medications provided to manage pain can sometimes lead to dependency and, eventually, substance abuse.
  • Military Culture: Military culture can normalize heavy drinking and substance use, making it easier for veterans to develop unhealthy habits that persist even after their service has ended.

  • 10% of veteran admissions to substance treatment centers were heroin, and 6% were for cocaine.
  • From 2001 to 2009, the percent of veterans in the VHA system receiving an opioid prescription increased from 17% to 24%.
  • 65% of veterans entering treatment reporting a frequent misuse of alcohol.
  • In 2014, veterans comprised more than 20 percent of national suicides.

SOBA NJ's Veterans Addiction Treatment Program

Modern Facilities Crafted for Modern Recovery

At SOBA NJ, we recognize the unique challenges veterans face and have developed a specialized program to address their specific needs.

Our medically supervised detox programs ensure safe withdrawal from substances while managing the discomfort of withdrawal symptoms. Our experienced medical staff is trained to handle the complexities of detoxification, providing veterans with a secure and supportive environment.

Our inpatient program offers a structured and therapeutic environment where veterans receive round-the-clock care. Through individual and group therapy sessions, veterans can address the root causes of their addiction, including trauma and mental health issues like PTSD. Our team of experts tailors treatment plans to the individual needs of each veteran, ensuring a personalized approach to recovery.

For veterans who need flexibility in their treatment, our New Jersey outpatient programs provide comprehensive therapy, counseling, and support groups. Veterans can attend therapy sessions while still fulfilling their personal and professional obligations, making it easier to transition back into civilian life.

In addition to traditional therapies, SOBA NJ offers holistic treatments such as yoga, meditation, and art therapy. These modalities provide veterans with healthy coping mechanisms, aiding in their overall recovery and well-being.

SOBA NJ understands that recovery continues beyond treatment. Our veterans receive continuous support through counseling, support groups, and access to our alumni network, ensuring they have the resources they need to maintain sobriety and mental well-being long after leaving our program.
