With informed care and a multidisciplinary approach, individuals can address symptoms of their illness, understand root cause issues, and develop a plan to find sustainable recovery.
Alcohol is one of the most commonly abused substances among Veterans. Ease of access and the unique stressors of military life have led many duty service members to cope with alcohol.
Drug addiction affects millions of Americans every day. While this epidemic touches every corner of the country, drug addiction in Veterans in particular, the issue is even more serious.
For many Veterans, transitioning back into civilian life after their time in the service can be a difficult task. Veterans face a number of challenges that may seem like a part of everyday living for civilians.

Sadly, far too many Veterans suffer in silence. Many consider a soldier’s service over when they return home, however, the emotional distress brought on by the trauma they have faced is long-lasting.

Post traumatic stress disorder is very common in Veterans as 9% of soldiers suffer from PTSD immediately upon return from deployment. This increases to 31% after a year. However, PTSD is often undiagnosed and therefore left untreated. Additionally, PTSD can lead to a struggle with substance abuse as over 20% of Veterans experience both. In fact, addiction to drugs and alcohol affects an alarming amount of Veterans with 39% of Veterans from recent conflicts battling alcoholism.
Hardships such as substance abuse, sexual trauma, and PTSD can lead Veterans down a dark road—some tragically taking their own lives. In 2014, almost 20,000 US Veterans committed or attempted suicide. Suicide is not the only result of untreated addiction and mental illness. Homelessness is also a common struggle with Veterans making up about 11% of homeless adults. These devastating consequences highlight the need for effective treatment options that are specifically designed for Veterans.
