Veteran-Led NGO Carries the Torch for VAMC’s Veterans Recovery Network Program


A restoration help program for addictive behaviors referred to as the Veterans Recovery Network launched by employees at VAMC turns into an energetic NGO to develop nationwide

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, October 14, 2023 / — The Veterans Recovery Network, initially launched by the Richmond VA Medical Heart has been adopted by a non-profit group, Veterans Recovery Network Inc. This NGO was fashioned to hold the torch of VAMC’s modern restoration program offering veteran-led in-person and on-line mutual help teams.

The Veteran Recovery Network (“VRN”) web site offers veterans and transitioning active-duty service women and men a free answer to provoke steps in changing into help group facilitators for dangerous substance use and different addictive behaviors.

The VRN program was initially launched in 2020 by suppliers at VAMC Richmond. Over the previous three years, this VA-founded program has obtained grants from the Central Virginia VA Healthcare System Innovation Fund and Veterans Well being Administration (VHA) Innovators Network.

VRN presents veterans entry to in-person and on-line conferences through on-line video conferencing via net platforms that host personal classes and recurrently scheduled conferences on platforms supported by collaborating companions. The community trains veterans to develop into facilitators of Cognitive Behavioral Remedy (CBT) based mostly SMART (Self-Administration and Recovery Coaching) teams and conferences.

VRN’s mission is to ‘broaden entry to group assets in efforts help those that at the moment serve or have served in the navy in search of help for restoration from addictive behaviors that trigger disruption and problems that threaten Veterans and their households, associates and communities.”
