How We Help Veterans & Their Families

To help us better understand and serve the needs of our nation’s Veterans, we intentionally include both Veterans and people in long-term recovery on our staff. Safe Harbor understands that our Veterans and their family members have unique needs that should be addressed by highly-trained professionals who understand what it’s like to serve. Safe Harbor’s staff have participated in PsychArmor’s training program so we can better assist our servicemen and women throughout their recovery from substance use. Our treatment program includes family and support system involvement when appropriate, and we welcome service dogs.
Safe Harbor is also a member of the Department of Veterans Affairs Community Care Network, which utilizes Veteran’s benefits to cover the cost of treatment through the Mission Act.
