Many veterans and military service members struggle with the lingering effects of trauma and combat exposure, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other forms of mental illness like depression and anxiety. To cope with these stressors, many veterans and military personnel turn to drugs and alcohol. Unfortunately, substance abuse provides temporary relief as well as physical and psychological repercussions down the road. In the end, an attempt at self-medicating only leads to an additional problem: addiction. For the men and women who have fallen into this lifestyle, Banyan Treatment Centers offers military and veterans detox in Illinois that can help.
Benefits of Our Military and Veterans' Drug Detox
Drug detoxification, or detox, is a form of treatment in which an individual who’s addicted to drugs or alcohol is placed on a schedule that allows them to slowly wean off these substances. Also known as tapering, weaning is a safer and more controlled method of detox than cold-turkey or at-home detox attempts.
Many of our clients begin treatment at our Heartland treatment center with medically supervised detox to help them overcome withdrawals, drug cravings, and other challenges they may face early in recovery. When a person becomes physically dependent on drugs or alcohol, their body struggles to function normally without them.
When these individuals do try to stop on their own, withdrawal symptoms are often too challenging to cope with, especially without support, and many continue their drug use to avoid them. Our drug and alcohol detox programs for veterans and military personnel break this cycle and help them get through the withdrawal hump of recovery and move forward.
Some other major benefits of our military and veterans’ detox in Illinois include:
- Safety and comfort, as all of our detox programs are medically supervised
- Personalized treatment programs to ensure clients’ needs are met
- Confidentiality to ensure all clients’ information remains private to ensure they feel comfortable being open with and receiving care from our therapists and counselors
- Increased chances of long-term success
- Reduced risk of relapse due to drug cravings or untreated withdrawals
Our military and veterans’ detox programs in Illinois are conducted at our safe, clean, and comfortable Heartland rehab facility. These programs give clients a fighting chance at long-lasting sobriety.
Illinois Medical Detox for Veterans and Military Members
Our military and VA detox services are usually the first that patients receive when they admit to our facility. As we mentioned, detox is an important first step in addiction recovery because it addresses drug cravings and withdrawals, two major factors that often contribute to relapse or incomplete treatment.
We offer a drug detox program for veterans and military personnel for all types of substances, including:
- Prescription Drugs
Not only does this level of care offer clients the comfort and support needed to safely and effectively overcome withdrawal symptoms, it also sets them up for a successful recovery and sobriety in the long run.
In addition to veterans and military detox, our Gilman, IL Banyan rehab also offers additional levels of care, such as residential treatment. We also have PHP and IOP at our location in Naperville, IL as a continuation of care. Each of these levels is suited to help clients according to the severity of their drug use disorders. While residential treatment offers the structure and privacy that patients with severe addictions require, PHP is better suited for patients who have undergone detox and treatment and want to slowly transition back to daily life.
If you or a loved one is a past or present service member with an addiction or mental illness, Banyan’s military and veterans detox centers can help. Contact Banyan Heartland today for more information about our Military and Veterans in Recovery program in Gilman.
