Veterans can have a hard time adjusting to civilian life. Because of PTSD and other mental and physical ailments they have acquired while on duty, they may begin abusing alcohol or drugs to cope with the transition. While physical addiction treatment can be universally applied, the psychological trauma that a combat veteran has undergone needs intensive therapy to rectify it. Having to deal with all the car traffic and the loud and intrusive noise associated with it can be a difficult task for someone returning home who associates that type of noise and commotion with bombs and gunfire. There is also the inevitable distrust that manifests itself in war zones abroad where the local people speak a different language and have unfamiliar customs. A veterans addiction treatment program may be a solution to these problems.

Those who have been wounded need pain medication and psychoactive drugs to help with the physical and mental burdens placed on them during their time of service. Others may turn to drugs and alcohol to compensate for the traumas they have faced. If you haven’t seen combat it is hard to relate to their situation. These feelings that they wrestle with may cause some veterans to self-isolate and self-medicate. Besides PTSD, veterans might also suffer from depression, chronic pain, homelessness, and substance abuse disorder.
