Some Battles Continue, Long After the War Is Over
Coming home should be a welcoming experience. Even if there’s a strong support network of family and friends, for U.S. military veterans the overload of stress and trauma adversely affects emotional and spiritual strength. Left unaddressed, our service members can feel neglected, misunderstood and left behind.
Some injuries are easily visible while others are hidden beneath a shadow of self-confidence, now lost. It takes a certain kind of commitment to heal what’s broken; a love and respect that’s unwavering. For these men and women who have allowed us to continue to enjoy the freedoms that we can call uniquely American, in their time of need, we offer our hands and our hearts. They always have our backs. It’s time for us to return the favor.

Scottsdale Recovery Center is honored to partner with the Wounded Warrior Project in providing Inpatient Residential and Intensive Outpatient treatment programs that fight the common aftermaths of active military service: drug addiction, alcoholism and dual diagnosis.
Some service veterans have trouble doing the simple things of everyday life. Answering the door when someone knocks. Interviewing for a job. Going to sleep at night. Dreaming instead of reliving nightmares day or night. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is the result of intense ongoing exposure to traumatic events. This condition affects a person’s ability to function and it takes the right approach to effect positive change by dealing with the root cause of the trauma, the self-medicating behaviors of drug and alcohol misuse and identifying and treating other mental health issues such as depressive disorders and anxiety.
