Addiction Treatment for Veterans by Veterans
Veterans are at a higher risk for developing addiction problems than the general population. They have to cope with post-traumatic stress disorder, physical injuries, and other mental health problems.
The National Center for PTSD estimates that 20% of veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan have PTSD.
Addiction treatment for veterans needs to be tailored to their unique needs. They need a program that addresses the root causes of addiction, such as PTSD or other mental health issues.
