Welcome to Heroes' Mile Military Rehabilitation Center

For Veterans By Veterans

Heroes’ Mile is a Substance Abuse, Post-Traumatic Stress (PST) and Military Sexual Trauma (MST) program designed for military service veterans who are experiencing problems with addiction and other psychological challenges related to their military service.

The mission of our military rehabilitation center is to guide individuals from self-defeating thinking and behaviors to a higher level of social, emotional and moral awareness, and to help them in their recovery and transition.

Our services include the following:

  • FULL-TIME MEDICAL AND NURSING CARE
  • DAILY GROUP COUNSELING
  • INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING
  • INTENSIVE RELAPSE PREVENTION
  • NUTRITIONAL ASSESSMENT & FOOD PLAN
  • 12-STEP INTRODUCTIONS
  • VARIOUS RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES
  • COUNSELING SERVICES FOR FAMILY MEMBERS
  • SPIRITUAL HEALING & AWARENESS
  • AFTERCARE PLANNING & TRANSITIONAL LIVING OPTIONS
  • ART THERAPY
  • POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS (PTS) AND MILITARY SEXUAL TRAUMA (MST) COUNSELING
  • JOB PREPARATION AND TRAINING

Our Levels of Care

From inpatient rehabilitation to intensive outpatient care, we provide different levels of care for different levels of need. Here are the four types of programs we offer:

  • INPATIENT DETOXIFICATION — In our detox program, we provide personalized, compassionate care while the body recovers from the use of drugs or alcohol. This is all done under medical supervision to ensure safety as well as success for our patients.
  • RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT — In our residential rehab program, individuals check in to our military mental health center to participate in a wide range of programs and activities aimed at preparing them for life outside of our facility.
  • PARTIAL HOSPITALIZATION PROGRAM — In the partial hospitalization program, clients come to our facility for up to five hours a day, returning home in the evening. This offers a structured level of support that doesn’t compromise a person’s independence.
  • INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAM — This non-residential program involves one or two hours of care per day. Participants can maintain work and home life while attending morning or evening sessions.

Benefits of Our Facility

Heroes’ Mile offers a new facility that opened in 2019 on 10 acres of secluded land. Veterans who come to us enjoy privacy, professionalism and a full range of inpatient and outpatient programs designed to address military mental health and addiction concerns. Our services include daily group therapy, individual therapy, recreational therapy, family/marriage counseling, nutrition education and more.  We have a full staff of medical, therapy and nursing personnel, and we are operated and staffed by veterans who understand the military experience.

Veterans Serving Veterans

Our military rehab center chooses to serve veterans because we have a long history of working with those suffering from addiction and the impacts of PTS and MST experienced while serving in the military. Created by veterans for veterans, Heroes’ Mile can help with a variety of addiction and psychological problems, including substance abuse, post-traumatic stress and military sexual trauma.
