Remedy Recovery is committed to our community. As part of that commitment, we offer free (pro bono) recovery services to our veterans.
It is a harrowing statistic that 22 veterans commit suicide every day in America . Remedy Recovery has a deep and wide commitment to our combat vets.
Remedy Recovery’s founder, Joe Schrank, knows first hand the aftermath of living with combat trauma. His father served three combat tours in Vietnam and struggled with civilian integration for the rest of his life. Certainly the secondary trauma of living with a vet doesn’t compare to being a vet, but the long-term impact of war on families is staggering.
Vets as a population do very well with cannabis replacement . Many complain of being overmedicated. The culture in which they live is rife with binge and impaired drinking, making for a dangerous, often lethal combination of chemicals. It’s no wonder that vets call PTSD “paid till suicide or death.”
Remedy Recovery believes there is a moral imperative to do better, and while we can’t help them all, we can help some. Our services to veterans include:
- Comprehensive medical assessment
- Medication management
- Assessment of cannabis use to reduce or replace pain, anxiety, and psychological meds
- Family integration and therapy
- One of our social workers acting as advocate to ensure that the maximum benefits are earned from service
- Complete psychiatric evaluation
- Complete biopsychosocial evaluation with one of our licensed social workers
- Tailored treatment plan to maximize post-military potential
- Educational and vocational counseling
Our veterans program is limited in space, but it is free of charge. All we ask is that you maintain the work ethic and compliance with norms that enabled you to carry out the dedicated service for the welfare of the people of the United States and other countries. Service is part of a healthy recovery, and Remedy Recovery as a system is no exception. Like you, we’re here to protect and serve. It’s the least we can do.
