Trauma-Informed Care for Veterans

At 12 South Recovery, we recognize the profound impact trauma can have on veterans struggling with addiction. Through trauma-informed care, we provide a comprehensive approach that addresses the underlying causes of substance abuse, empowering veterans to reclaim their lives and find lasting recovery.

Understanding Trauma-Informed Care

Trauma-informed care is a holistic framework that acknowledges the prevalence of trauma among individuals seeking addiction treatment. For veterans, trauma can stem from various sources, including combat experiences, military sexual trauma, and other service-related events. These traumatic experiences often contribute to the development of substance use disorders as veterans seek to cope with and numb their emotional pain.

Trauma-informed care goes beyond traditional addiction treatment modalities by recognizing the widespread impact of trauma and integrating this understanding into every aspect of care. It emphasizes safety, trustworthiness, empowerment, collaboration, and cultural sensitivity to create an environment conducive to healing and recovery.

Key Components of Trauma-Informed Care

  • Safety: Creating a physically and emotionally safe environment where veterans feel secure and supported.
  • Trustworthiness and Transparency: Establishing clear communication and boundaries to foster trust and reliability.
  • Empowerment: Encouraging veterans to actively participate in their treatment decisions and take ownership of their recovery journey.
  • Collaboration: Working collaboratively with veterans to identify their unique needs, strengths, and goals.
  • Cultural Sensitivity: Recognizing and respecting the diverse backgrounds and experiences of veterans, including their military culture and identity.

Trauma-informed care recognizes that veterans may present with complex needs and challenges that require specialized approaches. By addressing trauma alongside addiction, we can help veterans break free from the cycle of substance abuse and build healthier, more fulfilling lives.

Tricare Insurance Coverage for Veterans

At 12 South Recovery, we are committed to ensuring that veterans have access to the care they need without financial barriers. As a Tricare-approved provider, we accept Tricare insurance, allowing veterans to receive comprehensive addiction treatment services at our facility.
Tricare insurance coverage typically includes a wide range of addiction treatment services, such as detoxification, residential treatment, outpatient programs, medication-assisted treatment, individual and group therapy, and aftercare support. Coverage may vary depending on the specific Tricare plan and the individual’s eligibility status.
Our admissions team is experienced in working with Tricare insurance and can assist veterans in verifying their coverage and navigating the insurance process. We understand that insurance can be complex, and we are here to provide guidance and support every step of the way.

Other Payment Options

In addition to Tricare insurance, we offer a variety of payment options to accommodate veterans who may not have insurance or who may have out-of-pocket expenses. These payment options include:

  • Private Insurance Plans: We accept a wide range of private insurance plans, allowing veterans to utilize their existing coverage for addiction treatment.
  • Medicare: Veterans who are eligible for Medicare may be able to use their benefits to cover certain addiction treatment services.
  • Medicaid: For veterans who qualify, Medicaid may provide coverage for addiction treatment services, including detoxification, counseling, and medication-assisted treatment.
  • Veteran Affairs (VA) Benefits: Veterans may be eligible for benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to cover the cost of addiction treatment at our facility.
  • Private Pay and Financing Options: For veterans without insurance or who have out-of-pocket expenses, we offer flexible private pay and financing options to make treatment more affordable and accessible.

We understand that navigating the financial aspects of addiction treatment can be daunting, especially for veterans facing unique challenges. Our admissions team is dedicated to assisting veterans in exploring their payment options and finding a solution that works for them.
