When veterans return from service, they are often thrown into civilian life with little or no assistance. This can be a traumatic time as veterans come to terms with their experiences, and attempt to readjust to life back at home. The stress can lead to drug and alcohol abuse, and the range of physical, psychological, emotional, social, and spiritual effects that come with it.
Fortunately, The Hader Clinic and The Department of Veterans' Affairs are here to help. The DVA issues health cards to veterans and their families to use on healthcare and related services. If you are a Gold or White DVA Health Card holder, you may be covered for a minimum 90 day program at no cost.

The next stage of rehabilitation is about cementing long term goals for veterans. Our Inpatient Rehabilitation Program lasts between 60 and 90 days. In a safe, monitored space, we give patients the tools to adapt back to their civilian life, and help them reach their own understanding around personal responsibility and independence.
We understand that veterans require ongoing support and care, sometimes for years after they leave treatment. The Hader Clinic strives to prevent relapse by offering patients comprehensive aftercare services while they readjust to normal life once again.
