We offer our Military Veterans who are suffering from Substance Abuse a fun and enjoyable environment to work on recovery. Veterans who suffer from mental health issues such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are more likely to use drugs or alcohol as a way of dealing with the trauma they have suffered from while on active duty.
Substance use disorders (SUD) are prevalent among military veterans. Just serving in the military is a risk factor for increased alcohol use, according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.
“Alcoholism is prevalent in veterans primarily because many veterans—and particularly those who were deployed to combat zones or experienced military sexual trauma—have been through numerous traumatic circumstances and may be struggling to cope,” Dr. Aaron Weiner, a board-certified and licensed clinical psychologist, and addiction treatment specialist, tells WebMD Connect to Care. “As veterans experience more traumatic experiences than the general population, a greater number of them resort to substance use to cope with the impact of those experiences.”

Veterans may choose to drink alcohol for any number of reasons including stress relief, escape from the strict rigors of service, bonding with fellow service members, or as a way to cope with being away from family and friends, constant uprooting and moving, or experiences witnessed during deployment and action. Veterans who completed their service sometimes rely on alcohol to combat post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression related to their military service.

Drinking, for whatever reason, becomes problematic when it interferes with your responsibilities and you can’t stop despite the possible negative life consequences.
