Veteran Program

Now serving Veterans in Washington State

Research suggests that PTSD among military personnel is higher than among the civilian population. Military personnel experience many more traumatic events than the regular population. Frequent exposure to these traumatic events increases the likelihood of mental illness. One of the most common mental disorders among Veterans is post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). As the name suggests, this mental illness results from exposure to trauma and causes a variety of symptoms.

PTSD and Substance Abuse

We recognize that Substance Use is frequently a comorbid Disorder coupled with PTSD. Effective treatment of Substance Use Disorder, addressing any underlying trauma which has likely contributed to the development of the Substance Use Disorder. Unfortunately, mental health disorders are common among Veterans, and those who go without treatment for the conditions are at higher risk of suicide. We are proud to be part of the Department of Veterans Affairs Community Care Network and to provide treatment and support to those who have served our country.

The Veterans Program

At Discover Recovery, Veterans are assigned both a Master’s Level Therapist and a Substance Use Disorder Professional. The inclusion of a Mental Health Therapist allows for the effective treatment of most co-occurring disorders that Veterans may face.

Stand-alone, Substance Use Disorder Treatment for Veterans does not include treatment for PTSD, and is, therefore likely to be ineffective. At Discover Recovery, all therapists and medical providers are trained in trauma-informed care and the related criteria that indicate a diagnosis of PTSD.

The Treatment Begins Here

Our clinical staff is well-versed in a variety of modalities and evidence-based interventions to treat PTSD in this residential setting. Veterans can expect a robust clinical experience that enables them to safely begin the process of healing and addressing PTSD.

Levels of Care

We understand that the window of opportunity to ask for help can be limited, so a tremendous amount of caution is exercised to guarantee that we are the ideal location for treatment.

Prior to admission, potential clients receive a thorough pre admission screening. The purpose of this assessment tool is to gain an understanding of the precipitating crisis which has led to the decision to seek help, and identify any risks or concerns.


Our sub-acute medical detox is designed to help stabilize patients by resolving their physical and physiological dependence on alcohol or drugs.


Our Residential Program is an inpatient-style form of care. It’s also when most of the healing and recovery happen. Between daily therapy and structured activities, our Veteran clients gain the tools, knowledge, and experience needed to maintain sobriety.

Afercare Program

Although it’s possible to be successful in recovery without aftercare, we believe that Veteran clients should always take advantage of an Aftercare Program. With aftercare, an individual in recovery can continue to address his or her recovery needs beyond the brief period of treatment, which, in turn, can significantly minimize the likelihood of a future relapse.

Developed in coordination with Veteran clients’ VA providers, Our Aftercare Program provides individualized plans for Veterans’ continued support and treatment, reinforcing their sobriety as they return to VA for continued care and to home to resume their lives.
Our Veteran Alumni support continues after discharge because recovery is a lifelong journey rather than a quick fix.

The most common elements of aftercare include:
Counseling or psychotherapy
Referrals to VA and/or community care specialists
Twelve-step programs or other support groups
Case management
Financial planning and coaching
Assistance with finding employment
Alumni Support
