Are You a Veteran With a Substance Abuse Problem?

Help.org is an organization of medical professionals helping Veterans.  Recently a group of their medical professionals spent time with addiction experts to find out more about the substance abuse crisis that military veterans throughout the U.S. and their families are facing.  There are of course further implications such as long term medical problems, additional psychiatric disorders, interpersonal and vocational impairment, and sadly suicide.  Unfortunately, for most communities this problem is hidden due to the lack of awareness.  They have created a guide that provides comprehensive information on substance abuse statistics among veterans, governmental programs that offer treatment, and steps that veterans can take to get the help that they need. You can learn more about their guide here:


This free guide can be of tremendous value to our SCV members and those veterans who are suffering from addiction in our community.
