We are proud to be accepting TRICARE/CHAMPUS health insurance at The Shores Treatment and Recovery. TRICARE is a health care program serving active duty service members, National Guard and Reserve members, retirees, their families, survivors and certain former spouses worldwide.
According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, it’s estimated that approximately 30% of Vietnam veterans, 12% of Gulf War veterans, 11% of Afghanistan war veterans, and 20% of Iraq war veterans experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Individuals struggling with PTSD are at a greater risk of developing drug and/or alcohol problems, because these substances are often used to avoid bad memories, distract from physical or emotional pain, and induce sleep.
Over time, a reliance on drugs or alcohol can develop into addiction, producing co-occurring disorders among both veterans and active duty military personnel living with PTSD. The brave men and women who risk their lives to defend our nation’s freedom deserve addiction treatment that will give them the freedom to enjoy life to its fullest.
At The Shores Treatment and Recovery, we understand the addiction and mental health challenges our service men and women face. Our certified addiction professionals are dedicated to helping the nation’s heroes and their families regain their lives and beat their addictions.
Treatment for substance use disorder is covered by TRICARE health insurance. Veterans in need of drug and alcohol rehab or dual diagnosis treatment should refer to TRICARE’s explanation of coverage for more detailed information about their military insurance plan benefits.
The Shores Treatment and Recovery is proud to be a TRICARE approved residential treatment center. We promise to serve our military veterans with the same level of passion and dedication they exhibited when serving our country.
