Tactical Recovery

PTSD and Addiction Treatment in Indiana

Many veterans are reluctant to seek out help for PTSD and Addiction Treatment in Indiana because they don’t think there are programs available that address their unique background, which often leads to depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). They may fear that a non-military therapist will lack a clear understanding of the military experience.

What is the Tactical Recovery Program? 

Anabranch Recovery Center is happy to bridge this divide by offering the Tactical Recovery program for detox and residential treatment to provide PTSD and Addiction Treatment in Indiana. Developed in collaboration with the national non-profit PsychArmor, a national nonprofit educational organization, Anabranch has Veteran-based programming to ensure that our military are treated in a culturally competent and trauma-informed environment.

Residential Treatment for Veterans & First Responders

Residential treatment through the Tactical Recovery program provides a safe, structured environment for Veterans and first responders who are struggling with a substance use disorder or mental health issue. Upon arrival, individuals will be evaluated and if detoxification is necessary, it will take place before they move to residential care. Clients reside at one of our peaceful, homelike facilities during treatment, receiving access to 24/7 care and support from a team of credentialed recovery professionals.

In the Tactical Recovery residential program, every day is structured to provide intensive intervention and to educate, encourage, and empower each resident’s movement into recovery. Each day is full and designed to optimize the time we have with our clients and set them up for success when they leave. Clients can expect some combination of the treatment modalities below:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR, somatic experiencing, dialectical behavior therapy, experiential therapy, and 12-Step work
  • Individual, group, and family programming
  • Psychiatric services, including medication management, if appropriate
  • Substance use and co-occurring disorders education
  • Daily process groups, mindfulness groups, and exercise and wellness activities
  • Relapse prevention groups, gender groups, life skills groups, nursing groups, and discharge planning groups

With a focus on mind, body, and spirit, the Tactical Recovery program offers compassionate, quality care in an atmosphere conducive for growth. Residents may have access to nature walks, fishing, equine and animal-assisted therapies, exercise equipment, basketball, volleyball, and other recreational activities, as well as yoga, meditation, and other holistic therapies.


Mental Health Treatment 

Active military, Veterans, and first responders all face extreme stress both on duty and off. Long-lasting effects from these roles can include depression, anxiety, PTSD, and more. Our trauma-informed program meets the needs of this population completely, providing evidence-based treatment to assist individuals’ recovery.

Why are Veterans more susceptible to Substance Use Disorders? 

Why are Veterans more susceptible to Substance Use Disorders? 

Veterans can be more susceptible to substance use disorders for a variety of reasons, with many of these factors stemming from the unique challenges they face during and after their military service. It’s important to remember that not all veterans are susceptible to substance use disorders, and individual experiences and risks vary. However, some of the reasons veterans may be more susceptible to substance use disorders include:

  • Trauma and Stress: Many veterans have experienced traumatic events during their service, which can lead to conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). To cope with the emotional and psychological toll of trauma, some veterans may turn to substances as a way to self-medicate and numb their distress.
  • Pain Management: Veterans often experience physical injuries or chronic pain related to their service. Prescription medications, including opioids, are sometimes used for pain management, which can increase the risk of opioid addiction.
  • Social Isolation: Transitioning from military life to civilian life can be challenging. Veterans may face social isolation, feelings of disconnection, and a loss of the support network they had while serving. Substance use can provide a sense of relief or connection with others.
  • Lack of Mental Health Services: There is often a shortage of mental health services for veterans, and some veterans may not receive the care they need for mental health conditions, increasing the likelihood of self-medication with substances.
  • Cultural Factors: Military culture and peer influence can sometimes normalize or even encourage engaging in risky behaviors.
  • Unemployment and Economic Stress: Some veterans struggle with finding employment and financial stability after leaving the military, which can create additional stress and increase the risk of substance use as a coping mechanism.
  • Multiple Deployments: Veterans who have experienced multiple deployments may be at greater risk, as they are more likely to have encountered multiple traumas during their service.
  • Veterans with Co-Occurring Disorders: Some veterans may have co-occurring mental health issues and substance use disorders, further complicating their situation.

Early intervention and access to mental health services are crucial in reducing the risk of substance use disorders among veterans, and many veterans have successfully overcome these challenges with the right support and treatment. Our Tactical Recovery Program is specifically designed to assist veterans, active military and first responders on their journey to recovery.

Tactical Recovery Program Highlights:

  • Providing trauma-informed care within a service-oriented culture, using evidence-based practices proven effective with veterans

Healing for the Whole Family

Family Education & Support 

Addiction and mental health problems are family illnesses. When a loved one needs help, the entire family or support system is thrown into dysfunction. In the Tactical Recovery program, we know that family education, support, and involvement in the treatment process leads to better outcomes for our clients.

Our Family Support program is facilitated by a qualified counselor who has been trained to meet the needs of military and first responder families. We will help the family create realistic expectations for recovery through education and sharing in a safe, supportive environment. Education and discussion topics include codependency, boundaries, the 12 Steps, and self care.

Family members learn how they can best support the client when they leave treatment and begin their continued long-term recovery. This is an educational and transformative experience for the client and the entire family system.

Tactical Recovery Aftercare Support 

Tactical Recovery’s commitment to helping our clients doesn’t end after discharge from residential treatment. In fact, we begin building your aftercare plan as soon as you are admitted.

Just as residential services are individualized to meet your unique needs, so are the plans for ongoing support. Your treatment team will research all possible support services in your home area and will connect you with appropriate resources that will guide you through long-term success. Some of these resources include:

  • Intensive outpatient counseling
  • Referral to private therapists for ongoing mental health
  • Connection to local support groups (AA/NA, Celebrate Recovery, Smart Recovery)
  • Sober Living Environments
  • Other supportive resources in your community
  • Relapse prevention program Trac9
  • Housing, food assistance, and Veteran networking
  • We also keep in touch with you post-discharge, and love the opportunity to stay updated about your recovery efforts. Additionally, we will assist in finding new aftercare opportunities when necessary.
