Mental Health & Medication Policy

The Warriors Center Recovery Program is not a mental health center. We are a faith based substance abuse and life recovery program. Our program is an intense holistic recovery support program with military structure. The Warriors Center does accept students with mental health problems or co-occurring conditions into our residential recovery programs. However certain medications are not allowed in our residential programs as they can hinder a cognitive state and prevent a student’s progress in this type of environment and interfere with the recovery process. The prohibited medications list provides information on medications that are not allowed in our residential programs. If you are currently taking medications not allowed for use in our residential programs we recommend that you make an appointment with your mental health provider and you may discuss an alternative medication that is allowed at the Warriors Center. Prospective residents are strongly encouraged NOT to discontinue use of any medications without first checking with your physician. In the occurrence that an alternative medication is not available the Warriors Center will provide you with referrals to other treatment options in the area. This prohibited medications list applies to the faith based residential programs only and does not apply to the Out-Patient Treatment Program.
