Alcohol And Drug Rehab Treatments For Military In Alabama

Within the state of Alabama, there are drug and alcohol rehabilitation and treatment centers available to members of the military, veterans, and former members of the military.  Many of these programs are government funded, or covered by military insurance, while others are private and come at a cost for treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction impacts members of the military in the same way as anyone else, and drug addiction will cause a person to lose a great deal of both physically and mentally. There are roughly two million services members in the United States, and just over three million immediate family members. Although it is not a large percentage of military personnel who have had problems with drug abuse compared to civilians, it affects service members the same way.

Prescription drugs and alcohol are among the more commonly abused drugs in the military, with many of the prescription medications abused being opiates or painkillers.  Among the traditional treatment programs available in the state of Alabama there is also the Army Substance Abuse Program, which provides prevention, education and training, treatment and various outreach services for service members and their families.  Drug and alcohol addiction cannot always be beaten alone, and it will take dedicated and trained people to help those in need of treatment.  Just as American service members dedicate themselves to their country it is important that drug and alcohol treatment services are there for them and can help them take control of an addiction.  Many changes are being made in the military to help curb these problems, and because of this, many service members are being helped as a result of these positive changes.

Below you can find a listing of different drug & alcohol rehabilitation programs for military personnel in Alabama. The list can be incomplete so if you do not find what you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact one of our counselors at 1-800-304-2219.
