Addiction Treatment for Military

in Pompano Beach, Florida

Armed forces personnel are some of the strongest men and women in the world, both physically and psychologically. But that intensity can often dominate or even hide identified weaknesses when it comes to mental health and addiction. Whether you know somebody in the military establishment, or are serving yourself, there are many aspects of life to take care of before, during and after service to sustain well-being and ward off possible addiction problems. Preserving and caring for the health of military members only helps make people stronger.

The VA reports that nearly 1 in 10 veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have addiction problems. The Department of Veterans Affairs also shows that 1 in 3 veterans seeking addiction treatment have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as well. But there are several measures to help reduce the risks that a veteran will develop a substance use disorder.

Behavioral Health Problems and Substance Use Disorder in the Military

Because of their active-duty encounters, some veterans find themselves coping with depression, anxiety, PTSD, or other behavioral health issues. These conditions can boost one’s susceptibility to alcoholism and drug abuse. In fact, findings of alcoholism and drug abuse happen among those who have suffered trauma or stress more than amongst those who have not had it happen.

Alcohol consumption is an indoctrinated part of armed forces culture and is typically maintained into private citizen life. Some studies estimate that nearly 40% of veterans back from Middle Eastern tours tested positive for apparent alcohol abuse.

And while the opioid crisis has taken hold to a smaller degree in the military community than it has in the U.S. overall, veterans have nonetheless felt the increase of opioids, since so many armed forces personnel are treated with strong opioid medications due to their injuries.

Simple Path Recovery is dedicated to providing military active-duty, veterans, and their family members with effective substance use disorder and mental health treatment. We proudly participate with Humana Military and TRICARE health insurance.

It is not unusual for clients experiencing addiction problems to also encounter the symptoms of a mental health disorder like depression, anxiety, PTSD, or bipolar. This is identified as “co-occurring disorders” and can best be tackled through our dual diagnosis therapy. Not only can alcoholism and substance use disorder wreak havoc on the user’s life, but it can also take a toll on their family. Feelings of separation and anger on the part of the addict are supplemented by feelings of hopelessness among the addict’s loved ones.

Also, family members of veterans and active-duty military often experience their own mental health issues, such as anxiety regarding the addiction or mental health issues of their loved one. For this, Simple Path offers its cornerstone family therapy program which helps put back together the things that have come undone. Call us today at 855-467-3625 for a confidential consultation and to find out how our intimate environment of hope and healing can help you.
