ABOUT NAVAL HOSPITAL PENSACOLA – SUBSTANCE ABUSE REHABILITATION PROGRAM
The Naval Hospital of Pensacola (NHP), which is located just off Highway 98 in Pensacola, Fla., offers a Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Program (SARP) for active duty members struggling with addiction. Service members may be command referred, receive a medical referral from a branch clinic or Fleet and Family, or self-referred (and can walk directly into the clinic, if needed). Depending on the results of the assessment, participants may be referred to the hospital’s behavioral health center.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
After an initial screening, service members are given recommendations for education and/or treatment. Often, they are referred to the NHP behavioral health center, which offers outpatient services such as individual, marital, and family counseling, along with on-base presentations on topics such as anger management, stress management, and adjustment to deployment and post-deployment. Some individuals may be referred to a psychologist for a medical review and medication management.
According to the NHP’s website, treatment team members include a visiting SARP counselor and a licensed independent practitioner.
