We believe payment for treatment should never be an obstacle for recovery from the disease of addiction.
Everyone is different, so recovery is different for everyone. The VFR vets rehab plan offers vets support which is aware of your own situation and history: factors like severity, current progress in treatment, your relapse prevention needs, your personal preferences, needs, and values. You are integrally part of this planning.
Come in, and we’ll explore your outpatient treatment needs and appropriate level of care together. AT VFR, vets rehab is guided by veterans like yourselves. We ARE you. And VFR, like all Strive Health centers, is distinguished by its range of treatment options, based on your specific needs.
Education and prevention skills for at-risk individuals Early Intervention Services (EIS) VFR counselors work with organizations, employers, adults, teens, and their families to provide assessments, education and skills to at-risk individuals who do not meet diagnostic criteria for substance use disorder to proactively address addiction concerns.
