Expanding Our Commitment to TRICARE Coverage and Specialized Support

Through our Hero’s Path program, The Estate at River Bend stands as a beacon of hope and recovery for our nation’s active-duty military and veterans battling drug and alcohol addiction.

We’re proud to announce a new agreement with Humana Military (TRICARE), which extends our in-network coverage for military families seeking addiction treatment services. Effective April 1, this marks a significant expansion in our commitment to supporting veterans and active-duty military on their journey to recovery.


TRICARE Coverage: Bridging the Gap to Accessible Addiction Treatment


By accepting TRICARE, the Hero’s Path program at The Estate at River Bend is removing financial barriers to accessing high-quality addiction treatment for active-duty military families.


“Being in-network with Tricare means we can now provide essential substance use and mental health services to active-duty personnel and their families, ensuring they receive the support they need,” said Billy Vevle, LICSW and Chief Executive Officer of The Estate. “This partnership strengthens our reputation within the military community, signaling our commitment to serving those who serve.”


The addition of TRICARE coverage is a heartfelt commitment to breaking down the walls that often prevent our heroes from seeking the help they need. By alleviating the financial strain associated with treatment, The Estate at River Bend ensures that the path to recovery is accessible to more veterans and their families, promoting a healthier future for our military community.

Enhancements to the Hero’s Path Military and Veterans Addiction Treatment Program


Alongside the new TRICARE agreement, The Estate is further enhancing its Hero’s Path program to include specialized support through the expertise of Certified Sex Addiction Therapists (CSATs) and a dedicated track for survivors of Military Sexual Trauma (MST), a critical aspect of care for many veterans.

Introducing Specialized Support: Certified Sexual Addiction Therapists

Acknowledging the profound impact of trauma on addiction, Hero’s Path at The Estate now integrates the expertise of Certified Sex Addiction Therapists (CSATs) into the Hero’s Path program. These therapists specialize in treating compulsive sexual behaviors and sex addiction, offering insights and treatment modalities that address the root causes of these issues, many of which stem from traumatic experiences.

Addressing Military Sexual Trauma (MST)

We recognize the difficult experience of sexual assault or threatening sexual harassment while serving in the military, known as Military Sexual Trauma (MST). MST affects veterans of all genders and backgrounds, leaving deep emotional scars.

Within the Hero’s Path program, The Estate offers a dedicated MST track, providing specialized care and support for survivors of MST. This track underscores our commitment to whole-person healing, ensuring that all facets of a veteran’s experience are acknowledged and treated with the utmost care and compassion.

These enhancements ensure that our staff is thoroughly equipped to address the complex needs of our veteran and active-duty military members, offering a safe and supportive environment for recovery from both substance use and the impacts of trauma.

A Brighter Future for Veterans and Military Families


The Estate at River Bend’s initiative to accept TRICARE and to bolster the Hero’s Path program represent a significant step forward in the facility’s mission to offer accessible, high-quality care to those in need.

“Being able to work with men and women serving our country is an honor and privilege for our team at the Estate at River Bend and one that we don’t take for granted,” added Associate Vice President of Market Development for Hero’s Path, Brett Martin. “By adding Humana Military (TRICARE) to our long list of partnering providers, we know those who are sacrificing so much will have access to quality care that they deserve.”

In recognizing the unique challenges faced by veterans and active-duty military personnel, The Estate at River Bend’s Hero’s Path program is not just an addiction treatment initiative; it’s a testament to the unwavering support and gratitude we owe to those who have dedicated their lives to serving our country.

As we move forward, The Estate remains committed to expanding its services, ensuring that every hero has access to the comprehensive, compassionate care they deserve.

Helping our nation's heroes find their path to recovery.
