Guide for Addicted Veterans and their Families

Returning veterans face many challenges during their return to civilian life. Unfortunately, for too many veterans, the psychological and emotional trauma they’ve suffered leads them to turn to alcohol or controlled substances to self-medicate. The problem of addiction is one that plagues veterans, but a number of resources and treatment options exists to help men and women in uniform rebuild their lives.

To that end, American Addiction Centers has created a website that summarizes available governmental, organizational and other resources available to veterans with substance use disorders. It includes 48 citations of the latest studies and 10 external resources for veterans seeking help.
