Warriors Healing Warriors

Warriors Heart helps active military and veterans who put their lives on the line for our country. We create dedicated and tailored programs for every warrior seeking help, starting at a minimum of 42 days and extending up to 8 weeks. Together we face their addiction and PTSD challenges.

It’s not easy. We know.

We help active duty military and veterans daily. When you come home, you bring back more than physical scars. Your experiences stay with you and lead to unresolved combat stress, post traumatic stress disorder and can even evolve into substance abuse or addiction. We understand what you’ve been through, what you need, and welcome you to our healing facility.

Active military and veterans place their lives on the line for the safety of our country. However, many who offer their service come back home with more than just physical scars. Whether you served our country as part of the Army, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, or Navy, each experience you lived through can contribute to feelings of ill effects of combat and other traumatic events.

This can lead to feelings of isolation and inability to connect intimately with family and friends. In certain cases this can also lead to PTSD, with many turning to alcohol and drugs in order to decompress. For family members, it can be hard to come to the realization that the person who returned home is not the same person they know and love. In these situations, seeking treatment from Warriors Heart is the best option to ensure that they are able to recover and truly come home.

In order to provide the best treatment possible, we only accept those who suffer from addiction by itself or in conjunction with psychological disorders such as PTSD.

Causes of PTSD and Addiction In Active Military

Traumatic events suffered during battle are among the most common causes of veteran PTSD. This includes being in battle against an enemy, suffering a wound as a result of gunfire or grenade explosions, or seeing a fellow soldier suffer damage from enemy fire. Those who have served during war in the military are also all too familiar with being exposed to terrorist attacks, which often causes survivors to live with the memories of the event.

These memories live long after discharge, with veterans often seeking self-medication through alcohol, drugs, or prescription drugs to comfort themselves. Prescription drug abuse is more common among those who have been injured in battle, with 11.7% of veterans falling prey to this addiction in comparison to 4.4% of civilians.

PTSD / Addiction Signs and Symptoms To Look For In Active Military

It’s important to look out for a few telltale signs that your loved one in the military might be experiencing symptoms of PTSD. While some of these symptoms might occur after stressful situations, such as not wanting to engage in enjoyable activities, they become of concern when they are sustained.

A fear of losing a promotion, lacking trust to articulate emotional pain, or even just saving face and acting tough could often lead many to not seek help within the military and the resources they provide. This is why Warriors Heart was made, to provide assistance to those who are in a time of need.

Feelings of unrest

After their return they might be unable to sleep well as a result of the vivid memories they experienced during service. Some may even attempt to drink alcohol or take drugs in order to get sleep, however, this can ultimately lead to addiction which causes more harm.

Inability to feel happiness

Those who experience PTSD or addiction tend to lose pleasure in activities they once enjoyed. This can include losing interest in doing any activities at all or simply having difficulty experiencing any positive emotions when spending time with friends and family. This can also include isolating themselves from others in an attempt to hide their inability to express positive emotions.

Shift in mood

A shift in mood is one of the most noticeable signs to watch out for and one that family will notice upon their return from service. This can include feelings of irritability, aggression towards others, expression no hope for the future, mentions of feeling trapped, among many others.

Using drugs or alcohol excessively

Alcohol has long been a socially acceptable outlet for stress. However, those who are experiencing PTSD or addiction tend to abuse alcohol to the point of blackouts, hangovers, and binge sessions. This also includes the abuse of drugs to the point of dependency and withdrawal symptoms if attempts are done to stop.

Threats to cause self-harm or suicide

One of the most alarming signs is your loved one stating that they want to cause self-harm or commit suicide. It’s important to not take these threats as simple words. If a loved one in the military has taken action or threatened to harm himself, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 for immediate assistance.

Violent behavior

Upon returning from service there could be an increase in risk-taking behavior which indicates a disregard for their safety and life. They might also threaten to hurt or actually harm someone they love. This can include domestic violence where the partner or family members are subject to intimidation, physical assault, sexual assault, or other abusive behavior.
