Heroes’ Mile, a residential rehab for veterans, was created specifically for veterans by veterans. We help veterans find recovery through common ground.

Many people who have served in the military suffer from drug or alcohol addiction. In addition, their risk of substance abuse is higher if they have experienced any of the following:

  • Post-traumatic stress (PTS)
  • Military-induced trauma
  • Military sexual trauma (MST)
  • Other psychological challenges as a result of their military service

If you or a loved one is suffering from drug or alcohol abuse, know that you are not alone. In fact, our veteran rehabilitation center is here to support you in finding your path to recovery. With our professional drug and alcohol rehab for veterans, you gain empowerment to move past addiction and into healing.

Our staff members are dedicated to helping veterans transition from self-defeating thinking and behaviors into a higher level of social, emotional and moral awareness. Together, we will build the foundation for a lasting recovery.

First Steps After Admittance

First, clients will meet with a specialist to create an individualized treatment program. Sometimes, medical detoxification is the first step before entering the residential veterans rehabilitation program. Detox is necessary when the body has become physically dependent upon a substance like drugs or alcohol. Generally, detox takes 5 to 7 days. During this time, clients are under the 24/7 care of addiction specialists, physicians and mental health counselors.

When the timing is right, the client is moved into the residential program. If a client has already detoxed at another location, they can come directly into our residential program.

A Residential Rehab for Veterans

In our program, we subscribe to a 12-step philosophy. Furthermore, our inpatient residential rehab is a safe place to build the foundation for a lasting recovery. For example, the length of the program will depend on the individual’s treatment plan.

During their time in residential rehab, veterans will receive 24/7 monitoring. Veterans will reside in our tranquil villa located in sunny Florida. They may also participate in any of the following programs and activities:

  • Veteran-focused individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy
  • Spiritual healing
  • Nutritional assessment and food plan
  • Various recreational activities
  • Counseling services for family members
  • PTS and MST counseling
  • Job-ready preparation and training in conjunction with our community partners

Our staff members have a long history of working with veterans suffering from addiction, as well as the impacts of PTS and MST. At Heroes’ Mile, our clients receive the tools they need to prepare them for sobriety in their everyday lives.

It takes strength to ask for help. We’ve been there and will help veterans find recovery through common ground.

Post-Residential Treatment

The length of residential treatment depends on the client’s specific needs. Upon completion of the program, the next step is a partial hospitalization program (PHP), or an intensive outpatient program (IOP).
