American Addiction Centers’ has a brand new program to aid our veterans struggling with drugs, alcohol, and the mental challenges associated with these struggles. This new program, called Salute to Recovery, is offered at Desert Hope Treatment Center in Las Vegas.
This program differs from traditional programs because it was designed with a unique approach. Salute to Recovery was designed on research based evidence, which focuses on treatment of the individual person and their own lifestyle, rather than only facts and figures.
One of the main focuses of the Salute to Recovery program is to reintroduce the sense of community to our veterans. The facility has areas dedicated to veterans to talk and spend time among themselves, and are in control of bonding with each other.
This is effective because it makes it easier for veterans to open up and break through barriers. They begin to feel acceptance and familiarity. In turn, this can make the proper treatment options more available to the individual person.

One of the other key components in Salute to Recovery is acquiring the skills to cope with recovery, which is a life long process.
Through this method, veterans learn exactly what addiction is, first and foremost, so there is a basis of understanding. There are also structured methods of therapy that enable veterans to focus on what their own strengths are, rather than their weaknesses.
It’s very hard to anyone, especially a veteran, to work up enough strength to ask for help, or to even admit that they want it. In fact, several studies show that only near half of returning veterans with mental struggles ask for help.
That is alarming because 60 – 80 percent of veterans, overall, have a problem with alcohol abuse. With numbers like this, it is vital that American Addiction Centers has a program like Salute to Recovery.
