Serving Military Veterans & First Responders

Learn how Starlite Recovery Center in Center Point, TX, serves the unique needs of military veterans and first responders

Military veterans and first responders, such as police officers, firefighters, and paramedics, are often on the front lines of disasters and emergency situations. They may face the potential for physical and emotional violence, aggression, or injury on a near-daily basis, which can leave a lasting impact on their own lives and health.

Managing the emotional toil of military life or a job as a first responder can be exceptionally challenging. Some veterans and first responders may turn to drugs and alcohol to try to cope with the complex and difficult emotions associated with their experiences, which can lead to the development of a substance use disorder. Others may use drugs or alcohol to self-medicate the symptoms of a mental health challenge such as depression, an anxiety disorder, or posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

At Starlite Recovery Center, we understand the complexity of addiction and co-occurring mental health concerns in military veterans and first responders. We developed a residential program that addresses the specific needs of this population so that our clients can receive the targeted help they need to achieve the best outcomes possible. Our program for military veterans and first responders offers a safe, therapeutic space where individuals can begin the healing process.
