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.

With proper authorization, veterans can start receiving care at our Tactical Recovery program locations until services can be secured at a VA facility. This bridge can support veterans when they need help the most, and start them on the road to recovery sooner.

Offered at all Tactical Recovery locations, Bridge Care offers:

  • A temporary supportive environment where veterans can remain safe and sober
  • A veteran-centric approach offering trauma informed care to include a variety of evidence-based practices, proven to be effective in treating the veteran population
  • Medically monitored withdrawal management
  • Collaborative coordination with VA Medical Centers to ensure a safe bed-to-bed transfer
  • A staff of licensed clinicians and medical professionals
