English Mountain is proud to serve our nation’s veterans with our drug and alcohol addiction program. At EMR, we believe in whole-person healing that is based on the 12 Steps, and we have staff members who are specifically trained to address the unique needs of veterans through the PsychArmor certification program.
Throughout a 30, 60, or 90-day stay at our recovery center in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, veterans work alongside trained counselors to get to the root of their physical, emotional, and psychological needs as they address their alcohol or drug addiction. Because English Mountain also works with co-occurring disorders, we can treat the mental health issues that often accompany substance abuse issues, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder, all of which are common in veterans.
During orientation at EMR, veterans are paired with another veteran who acts as a mentor in our Battle Buddies program. Traditionally, we pair clients entering EMR with someone who has already successfully completed part of the program and can provide guidance to new veterans in recovery.
EMR’s veteran-specific rehab includes a full spectrum of holistic programming options:
Prior to discharge, our counselors will establish continuing treatment in the veteran’s home town. We also provide resources for housing, food assistance, and veteran networking.
Whether you are seeking help for yourself or a loved one who is a veteran, our all-inclusive residential facility in Tennessee is affordable and offers one of the industry’s highest recovery success rates. Since EMR is a member of the Community Care Network, VA benefits can be used to help cover the cost of treatment, and we accept many other forms of insurance.
