Five acre Montgomery County campus launches program designed to treat military service members, veterans and their families behavioral health needs.
The Valley residential treatment center, a privately owned and operated treatment center that opened last year, is now admitting military service members, veterans and their families with Tricare Insurance at 19120 Muncaster Road, Rockville, MD 20855. The first of its kind Montgomery County facility offers an evidence-based inpatient treatment program that integrates addiction treatment, substance abuse treatment, mental health treatment, and behavioral healthcare in a comprehensive, person-centered, therapeutic method.
Per The Valley:
“Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine service members, veterans and their families will benefit from a home-like feel in a rural environment where patients are fully supported on their path to recovery. A forward approach to treating addiction, PTSD, anxiety, survivors guilt/grief, depression, alcohol abuse and prescription medication abuse is facilitated by a qualified, experienced, and caring team of counselors, trauma therapists, nurses, clinical & medical professionals, case managers, and support staff trained in treating the conditions veterans are facing.”
“We believe our service members face many barriers when seeking access to care. With this new program our goal is eliminate the number of hoops services members, veterans and their families have to jump through to receive treatment” said James Peters, The Valley founder. “We’re proud to be the first residential treatment center in Montgomery County, MD to accept Tricare and open our doors to the military service community and their families.”
