Veterans Day: A Day of Appreciation and Opportunity for Conversation on How to Best Help Veterans in Need
Veterans Day provides an opportunity for our country and local communities to honor those that have put their country first. As ceremonies and parades are hosted across the country to honor veterans, it is also a time to have an open conversation about the challenges that many veterans face daily.
Center for Behavioral Health’s (CBH) work with the veteran community is extensive. CBH provides veterans across the nation with counseling and medical assistance. CBH, which was co-founded by a veteran, actively employs staff with military service records, and many staff that have active military family members. CBH’s close tie to the military makes Veterans Day extremely meaningful to the entire CBH family.
Veterans, through experiences gained during their time serving or a path that they have followed upon their return, are often facing challenges much different than those faced by civilians. These experiences can result in mental and physical challenges for veterans when they re-enter civilian life. As a result, the U.S. Government plays a major role in helping support many veterans long after they are finished serving.
The Department of Veterans Affairs works to uphold President Lincoln’s original promise “To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan” by serving and honoring America’s veterans.
While our society has changed since the days of Lincoln, the mission remains the same for those that served. As such, the VA has become a sanctuary that offers health and medical assistance, as well as an assortment of benefits that are focused on helping individual veterans and their families. Center for Behavioral Health (CBH) is proud to partner with VA hospitals across the country to help veterans by providing improved health care and streamlined services.
In all CBH locations we provide services to the Veterans Affairs Hospital to help veterans that suffer from various forms of addiction. CBH offers a wide range of services that focus on proven medically assisted treatments including Methadone, Buprenorphine, Vivitrol and counseling. Each of these medications, in combination with counseling, has proven to be successful in helping veterans who are addicted to opioids to a path of recovery.
CBH’s regional offices all across the country are recognizing Veterans this Veterans Day with a variety of different activities.
