Tres Vistas Recovery is a dedicated to veterans grappling with the challenge of substance abuse. Our outpatient rehab program in San Juan Capistrano is tailored to the unique needs of veterans struggling with alcohol and drug addiction. More than just managing the symptoms, our treatment approach promises profound healing, recovery, and reintegration into a fulfilling, substance-free civilian life.
Our services are increasingly crucial when we consider the significant scale of the problem. Data from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reveals that 4 in 5 veterans grapple with alcohol use. This statistic underscores the urgent need for specialized support and therapy, like the ones we provide at Tres Vistas Recovery, to aid our veterans on their road to recovery.
Veterans and Addiction to Drugs & Alcohol
Transitioning from the structured environment of military service to civilian life can be fraught with unique challenges. It’s an unfortunate reality that many veterans fall into the trap of substance abuse during this transition. According to data from the Veteran’s U.S. Department of Affairs, more than 2 of 10 Veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) also struggle with a substance use disorder. Veterans resort to drugs and alcohol as a coping mechanism for their PTSD, depression, and/or anxiety.
At Tres Vistas Recovery, we aim to bring these silent battles into the light. We offer therapeutic interventions beyond simply addressing the addiction, aiming to heal the emotional and psychological wounds borne out of service.
Trauma and Challenges for Veterans
War leaves scars that are not always visible. The trauma and PTSD experienced by many veterans can develop into a more advanced condition known as complex post-traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD). This can lead veterans to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol, further entrenching them in the destructive cycle of addiction.
The prevalence of PTSD in veterans is alarmingly high, with some studies indicating that this condition affects between 20% to 30% of veterans. This high prevalence underscores the critical importance of addressing and treating PTSD as part of this population’s integrated approach to managing addiction.
At Tres Vistas Recovery, our commitment is to understand and respond to these struggles effectively. Our comprehensive recovery programs offer specialized trauma work that directly addresses PTSD and equips our brave heroes with the tools to navigate their path to recovery. By acknowledging the prevalence and impact of PTSD, we aim to enhance the effectiveness of our interventions and support our veterans in their journey towards a healthier, substance-free life.

Veterans and Alcohol Abuse
Alcoholism in veterans is alarmingly prevalent. Many use it as a makeshift solution to deal with physical pain, emotional distress, and the ensuing social isolation after their service. The intersection between PTSD and alcohol abuse among veterans is a significant and troubling concern. Recognizing this, our specialized veteran’s alcohol rehab program is meticulously crafted. It aims to address these intertwined challenges, equipping veterans with the psychological tools and robust social support they need to overcome alcohol addiction and reclaim control over their lives.
Veterans and Drug Abuse
Much like alcohol, drug abuse is a pervasive problem among veterans. The grim realities of military service and the mental and physical stressors that come with their duty can lead to dependency on various substances. Our drug rehab programs for veterans take a comprehensive approach. We focus on addressing the addiction and its root causes, offering a holistic path to recovery.
Our Therapies and Programs
At Tres Vistas Recovery, we offer Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) as core components of our treatment plans. Here are some key features of our outpatient veteran’s alcohol rehab and drug addiction program:
We implement a trauma-informed treatment approach that acknowledges and addresses the significant impact of trauma on veterans’ lives. With their specialized training and experience, our therapists untangle the complex relationship between PTSD and substance abuse, guiding our patients along the intricate path to recovery.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), an extensively researched and effective therapy for treating PTSD, is a crucial part of our comprehensive treatment plan. We leverage EMDR to help patients process traumatic memories and mitigate their influence, leading to meaningful, lasting recovery.
Veterans grappling with CPTSD receive specialized therapy to manage and overcome this challenging condition. Recognizing that CPTSD often exacerbates substance abuse in veterans, our therapeutic approach incorporates this understanding, offering an all-encompassing recovery path for our veterans.
Understanding the unique challenges veterans face is a vital part of the therapeutic process. That’s why one of our therapists is a veteran, bringing a unique perspective and empathetic approach to the therapeutic journey. Their firsthand experience of the military lifestyle enables us to build stronger connections and more effectively assist our veteran patients.
Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)
Our intensive outpatient program allows veterans to partake in a structured therapy program while fulfilling their daily responsibilities. This balance enables a smoother transition to recovery without complete withdrawal from their regular lives.
Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP)
Our partial hospitalization program offers medical supervision and rigorous therapy for veterans requiring more intensive treatment. This program is ideal for those transitioning from inpatient care or those with insufficient outpatient services.
