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.

What is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder? What is its Link to Substance Abuse?

PTSD can occur after someone goes through combat, physical or sexual assault, a serious accident, a natural disaster or a terrorist attack. PTSD symptoms include flashbacks, feeling numb to the things once enjoyed and going out of your way to avoid reminders of the event. With so much stress, veterans with PTSD are more likely to numb their pain with drugs or alcohol.

Post-traumatic stress disorder and substance abuse often co-occur among veterans, and without treatment, they can lead to depression, suicide or homelessness. Fortunately, veterans with PTSD and SUD respond well to evidence-based therapies like Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Prolonged Exposure (PE). The key is making these services more accessible and affordable to veterans and their families.

Supporting Veterans with Outpatient Treatment Services

When returning home from active duty, it takes time to adjust to a new life. But if you find yourself experiencing symptoms of PTSD or are relying more on drugs and alcohol to numb your pain, know that help is available. Condor Life Services provides intensive outpatient and standard outpatient treatment services for uniformed service members.

What makes our treatment program unique is that we provide all services online using Zoom technology. This is important for veterans because they need help adjusting to their everyday life – they do not need to be removed from it. By seeking care from Condor Life Services, veterans learn new skills that can be applied right away.

Additionally, our treatment services are cost-effective because clients do not have to live at our facility. They can save money on transportation and childcare, and they don’t have to take time off from work. Condor Life Services offers various meeting times to accommodate all schedules.

Condor Life Services Accepts Tricare Health Insurance

Currently, Condor Life Services accepts most private pay insurance and Tricare. Tricare is a health care program for uniformed service members, retirees and their families. Most Tricare health plans meet the requirements of minimum essential coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

Condor Life Services fully supports members of the Army National Guard, Air National Guard, Army Reserve, Navy Reserve, Marine Corps Reserve, Air Force Reserve, US Coast Guard Reserve, as well as all other uniformed service members and their families.
