Addiction & Co-Occurring Disorders
Many veterans struggle with mental health conditions such as ADHD, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and insomnia. These co-occurring disorders are contributing factors for drug and alcohol abuse, and must be treated in a comprehensive addiction rehab program.
Active-duty and veteran military members struggle with substance use disorders, just like the general population. With combat deployments, drinking culture, and chronic pain from injuries, it’s no surprise service members also face issues with addiction. In fact, about 11% of military veterans meet criteria for a substance use disorder.
PTSD is a mental health disorder that occurs when a person is exposed to a traumatic event and experiences distressing symptoms. Studies estimate the prevalence of veterans with a current diagnosis of PTSD is anywhere from 9-15%.
Depression is one of the most common mental health disorders among veterans and can be extremely debilitating. In 2008, the VA estimated that 1 in 3 veterans experienced at least some symptoms of depression.
Anxiety disorders are disorders characterized by excessive worry or fear that causes distress. Approximately 3% of all adults experience some symptoms of anxiety, but rates of anxiety are typically higher for military veterans, around 5-12%.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a mental health condition linked to symptoms that include behavioral problems, poor concentration, fidgeting, and overactivity An estimated 5% of adults in the U.S. have ADHD, which represents 11 million individuals.
