The Valor Recovery Program is located at Signature Psychiatric Hospital in North Kansas City, MO. Signature Psychiatric Hospital is located on the beautiful campus of North Kansas City Hospital.

The Valor Recovery Program (VRP) is designed to help Active Duty Military, Veterans, and First Responders process trauma, manage stress that encompasses life changes, and control unhealthy behaviors of addictions while maintaining sobriety. The self-sacrifice to keep others safe involves witnessing and experiencing events that are difficult to process. VRP is a safe place for individuals struggling to face these fears without judgement. Additionally, you are surrounded by individuals with similar experiences who can be a great support system throughout your journey.

In this program, you are asked to be honest with yourself and give 100% effort in treatment to reach your treatment goals. VRP staff is here to assist individuals in processing traumatic events, teach coping skills, educate you on trauma and addictions, build resiliency, and provide knowledge and skills on how to maintain sobriety. You are not alone in your struggle. VRP is here to help you regain control of your life and heal the invisible wounds.


Trauma and PTSD Program

VRP offers a specialized track for individuals suffering from trauma and PTSD. This is a complete program that covers every type of trauma- whether experienced in childhood, adulthood or during combat. VRP is a non-emergent unit and requires individuals to not be actively suicidal or homicidal. If a patient is acute, he or she will need to be stabilized on an acute unit. Once the patient is stabilized, he/she can be considered for admission to VRP.
