Help for Veterans with Substance Abuse

Help for Veterans with Substance Abuse
This is an issue TapsBugler is concerned with. Along with death by suicide, this is a problem in our military and one we have a passion about.

In 2015, 1 in 15 veterans had a substance use disorder, and they are more likely than civilians to have substance abuse problems with alcohol, tobacco, and prescription drugs. According to a study by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), around 3.7% of service members before the Vietnam war reported substance abuse, but recently, 12.7% of members who have served since 2001 reported drug abuse, more than tripling the pre-Vietnam rate.

While other segments of the population might turn to substance abuse for a variety of reasons, veterans often turn to substances like alcohol, tobacco, and prescription drugs when suffering from difficulties like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and homelessness.

The good news is that if you are a veteran who struggles with substance abuse, you can receive a variety of services for free from the VA including help detoxing, treatment in facilities, individual or group therapy, medications, and other services.

We compiled information to walk you through each step of the process – from learning about substance abuse treatment programs to accessing treatment. We also provide additional resources, hotlines, and funding programs to supplement or help make treatment possible.

    I was shocked when I read that 1 in 15 veterans suffer from substance abuse problems. My brother is a veteran and he’s going through hard times. We’re going to have an intervention and we want him to understand that he has a problem and the only way to get better is to go to a substance abuse program.
