What Warriors Are Saying
WHAT WE TREAT AT WARRIORS HEART
Substance abuse is all too common for those returning from combat or being on the frontline. Active military and veterans who have been through combat exposure often turn to drugs in an attempt to calm the negative emotions they experience. Some active military members and veterans end up using alcohol, prescription drugs, and illicit drugs such as methamphetamine, cocaine, and heroin in order to calm their negative thoughts.
PTSD, TBI, and MORE
Veterans, active members of the military, first responders, and firefighters are often faced with several traumatic events during their service. The experiences they live each day slowly cause a feeling of dread that can lead to PTSD and cause a dependency on alcohol and substance abuse as they seek comfort from nightmares, flashbacks, and more.
Often those who suffer from PTSD symptoms use alcohol as a way to cope with the symptoms of psychological disorders. However, alcohol is a depressant that not only causes symptoms of depression but also enhances the damaging effects of PTSD. The effects of drinking don’t only affect our warriors, but their families and loved ones as well. Often victims of alcoholism use social events to hide their alcohol dependence, although it quickly escalates and takes a toll on their health and wellbeing.
