Many military troops and veterans struggle with the aftermath of trauma and combat exposure, including mental health disorders like post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and anxiety. To cope with the physical and psychological repercussions of their careers, many veterans and service members turn to drug and alcohol abuse. In the end, however, rather than provide any lasting relief from their symptoms, substance abuse only worsens the situation, tacking on the additional problem of addiction. For veterans and military troops who have fallen victim to this way of living, Banyan Treatment Center Palm Springs offers military and veterans (VA) detox programs that can help pave the way to recovery.

Benefits of Military & Veterans Detox

Drug detoxification is a form of addiction treatment during which an individual is slowly weaned off of drugs or alcohol. Also known as tapering, weaning a person from drugs or alcohol after long-term use is a safer and more controlled method than cold-turkey or at-home remedies.

Medically supervised detox is designed for clients with severe addictions. The goal of this level of care is to safely treat and mitigate uncomfortable, painful, and potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawals commonly occur in people with severe substance dependencies.

Depending on the substance in question, withdrawal symptoms may include both physical and psychological symptoms, such as fever, shaking, vomiting, hallucinations, anxiety, and psychosis. Because this process for most is usually unpleasant, to say the least, many who attempt to detox on their own will often relapse and go back to using or drinking simply to get rid of their withdrawals.

Our drug detox program for veterans and military service members breaks the cycle of withdrawal and relapse, helping clients overcome the physical and mental challenges of early recovery. With that said, here are some benefits of our military and veterans' drug detox services to consider:

  • 24-hour care and supervision to ensure client safety and comfort
  • Substance-specific treatment programs to ensure clients’ needs are met
  • Confidentiality to ensure all clients’ information remains private
  • Increased chances of long-term success
  • Reduced risk of relapse
  • Reduced risk of physical and psychological complications due to untreated withdrawals

Banyan Treatment Center Palm Springs isn’t like other veterans' detox centers. Military and VA detox programs are just one of the various levels of care offered to our troops, both past and present. Detox is just one aspect of our Military and Veterans in Recovery program, which is offered not only at our Palm Springs rehab, but at all of our Banyan rehab locations.

Our California Detox for Veterans & Military Troops

Banyan’s veterans and military detox is usually the first step of treatment for most clients who come to our rehab center. As we mentioned, detox is a crucial step in the addiction recovery process because it addresses one of the most challenging aspects of early recovery: withdrawals. Drug and alcohol withdrawals are often uncomfortable enough to prevent addicts from making a full recovery.

For this reason, our Banyan Palm Springs, Southern California rehab, offers drug and alcohol detox programs for military and veterans to ensure that everyone in our communities gets the help they need to achieve long-term sobriety. No matter how far into addiction you are, we can get you out.
