Alcohol and Drug Abuse Support
Click HERE to visit the Veterans Health Administration website for the Support of Alcohol or Drug Misuse.
"Alcohol and drug misuse can lead to serious health, relationship, employment, and legal problems. Problematic alcohol or drug use can also lead to substance use disorders (SUD). Symptoms of SUD include tolerance, the ability to drink or use greater quantities over time, inability to stop drinking or using in spite of negative consequences, and withdrawal, feeling sick when trying to quit drinking or using drugs. Problems with drinking or drug use may occur in response to stress, or in combination with posttraumatic stress disorder, depression, or other medical conditions. Fortunately there are proven methods to help Veterans recover from alcohol or drug misuse, including mutual help groups and other effective treatments."
Alcohol Rehab Guide
Over the last several decades, alcoholism has become a huge concern for military personnel across the United States. Current and former military face an array of challenges – unpredictable deployments, the risk of injury and being away from home. Unfortunately, alcohol is sometimes used as a coping mechanism during these difficult times.
Veterans are also at risk of being diagnosed with a co-occurring disorder. Co-occurring disorders involve a diagnosis of two conditions, substance abuse and a mental health disorder. For example, if a veteran falls victim to alcohol abuse while suffering from anxiety, both conditions must be addressed and treated together. If left untreated, a co-occurring disorder can lead to more serious health complications in the future.
Although millions of veterans are in need of assistance while adjusting to civilian life, many do not receive treatment. If you or someone you know is struggling with a drinking problem, there are many recovery options available. Contact one of our treatment specialists to get started on your treatment plan today.

Treatment for Veterans and Drug Addiction
To civilians, the return home for veterans seems like a joyous time. When many veterans begin to run into issues, it becomes hard for civilians to sympathize. There is a lot more stress in reintegrating than most realize. With what many Veterans have seen, endured, and taken over seas, it isn’t a switch they can just flip. Sometimes, turning to self-medication seems like the easiest, least-burdening way to get better.
If you are, or someone you love is, a Veteran that is having trouble fitting into a life outside of the military due to drug addiction, finding help as quickly as possible can be invaluable. If you don’t know where to start, try reaching out to a dedicated treatment specialist. They are here to answer your questions and help you plan out your next steps toward recovery.

CBD for PTSD
Various forms of psychotherapy, often combined with medications like SSRIs, are the primary form of treatment for PTSD. However, a growing body of evidence suggests that cannabinoids (CBD) may also be helpful in treating PTSD, particularly the anxiety and sleep-related symptoms of the disorder.
A leading health concern that our veterans face is the treatment for chronic pain leading to opioid addiction. As you may know, record-high prescribing rates among veterans has led to increases in overdose deaths – veterans are now twice as likely to overdose from Opioids as non-veterans.
