Veterans’ Scholarship Program
Spero Recovery Center is dedicated to increasing access to care to individuals who have served our country. There are few programs serving veterans in Colorado, leaving many seeking treatments out of state and away from their homes. Through fundraising efforts and strategic partnerships, Spero is proud to support veterans who want to live in recovery through financial scholarship opportunities.
What is a Veterans’ Scholarship Program?
Our scholarship program utilizes a set amount of money we collect through partnerships and fundraising to get those deserving of specific treatment the help they need. The trauma they experience during combat and war tends to manifest once they return home. Unfortunately, enough isn’t being done to help our veterans once they come back from war. That’s why Spero Recovery Center makes it a point to create a veterans’ scholarship program for those in need.
What to Expect at a Veteran’s Rehab Program
Once you utilize our scholarship program, you need to know what to expect moving forward. At a veterans rehab program in CO, you should expect to be treated with the respect you deserve. Medical professionals will help provide the care you need to end your addiction and get your life back on track. At a veteran’s rehab program in CO, you will be placed with other veterans to begin to learn how to live a sober and happy life on your own. Here are some of the recovery techniques you can expect to experience:
