Veterans face many challenges in returning to civilian life after military service or deployment. Many of those challenges stem from the psychological trauma that follows war and lead to alcohol and drug abuse. If you are a veteran struggling with drug abuse, The Phoenix Recovery Center offers resources and rehab centers for veterans covered by Tricare.

The transition from military to civilian life can be a difficult one but with treatment and therapy, you can return to a meaningful life again.
With the help of a veterans rehab center like The Phoenix, you will get specialized help for the unique circumstances surrounding your life and addiction.

Other addiction recovery services include general and intensive outpatient drug rehab and medication-assisted treatment.
Along with Tricare’s drug rehab coverage, the mental health services at the Phoenix are also covered by your insurance. Pairing our addiction recovery and mental health services will help you get the most out of your time at The Phoenix.
