We appreciate the wonderful men and women who serve our country – patriots all… and their families. We urge any vets needing our help with PTSD related addiction issues or questions to call us now at (833) 955-5888 or email us.Every year, thousands of troops leave active duty service and return home to their communities where they live as military veterans. However, the demands of military service and the trauma witnessed in combat doesn’t get left at the military base. Veterans carry this pain and trauma with them, making them vulnerable to mental illness and substance abuse.
According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 1.5 million veterans aged 17 and older (or 6.6 percent of this population) have a substance use disorder (SUD). Many of the people who struggle with substance abuse do so because they have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Almost 1 out of every 3 veterans seeking treatment for an SUD also has PTSD.
