Substance Abuse in the Veteran Population
Veterans can continue to experience readjustment problems years after they leave the military often without realizing the connection to their service. They can experience anger, anxiety, PTSD and difficulty reintegrating into civilian life and can find themselves struggling with employment, family and substance use difficulties. We work with both male and female veterans who have served in the military especially those who were in combat in Vietnam, Gulf, Iraq and Afghanistan to facilitate a satisfactory adjustment to civilian life. We work closely with veteran’s organizations to ensure all gaps have been bridged.
It is common for veterans to turn to drugs and alcohol as a way of managing the difficult thoughts, feelings and memories of their military experience. Unfortunately, it is not an effective long-term solution and can, in fact, complicate their lives even further. We provide out-patient substance use disorder treatment to veterans and their families to support their emotional, physical and behavioral adjustment. Family members can seek our services even though the veteran themselves are not currently in our program. Readjustment is not only a challenge for the veteran; it can also be a challenge for the entire family.
