Serving Those Who Have Served

Drug and Alcohol Treatment for Veterans and Active-Duty Military

Hero's Path Bradford Health Services Recovery Program

Helping Our Nation’s Military Heroes Find Their Path to Recovery

Hero’s Path offers veterans the understanding, support, and resources necessary to recover from addiction and take charge of their lives once again. Our program uses evidence-based treatment plans tailored to each person, recognizing their bravery and helping them tap into their ability to change for the better. We empower servicemen and women to confront the shadows of their past and embrace their recovery journey with courage and determination.

Understanding the Military Experience

Serving in the military can be a fulfilling experience, but its challenges can leave a profound impact. Veterans and active-duty members grappling with addiction often also carry the burden of invisible wounds including complex PTSD, trauma, pain, and grief, which can significantly influence their substance use behaviors.

Our curriculum is designed to be relevant and specific to the individual experiences of each participant, offering:

    • Individual and Group Therapy with Peers

    • Trauma-Informed Care

    • Experiential Therapy

    • Mental Health Dual-Diagnosis Support

    • Outpatient, Aftercare, and Ongoing Support Programs

What if Everything Could Change, Starting Today?

Together, we’ll discover the hero within you and forge a path to lasting recovery
