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