Alcohol and Drug Abuse Recovery Centers
VARP, Inc believes and endorses the concept that substance abuse is an illness in which an individual’s ingestion of drugs and/or alcohol repeatedly interferes with health, job performance, family welfare and interpersonal relationships. The philosophy of this program is that substance abuse is a treatable disease that not only affects the addicted person, but everyone who has contact with him or her. Our treatment programs provide a warm, drug and alcohol free long term environment, with qualified and empathetic paraprofessional personnel who assist the addicted person and family members in developing life changing tools, recovery and coping skills through peer interaction and 12 step support.
The VARP programs are State Licensed and Certified 501 C-3, forty-five to ninety day, twenty-four hour, seven day a week alcohol and drug residential recovery treatment programs, providing food, shelter and the substance abuse recovery treatment needs of individuals who are residents of the Inland Empire and surrounding communities. Program activities and services include but are not limited to, scheduled group process sessions, educational book studies, interaction group, recreational activities, exit planning, relapse prevention, community support with referral services, and family reunification.
VARP, Inc. was established as a non-profit corporation thirty-two years ago in February of 1979 by a group of recovering individuals who realized that they and others like them needed long term recovery support services. Veterans Alcohol Recovery Program was formed.
