Substance Abuse and Veterans
At Evoke Wellness in Miramar, we understand that veteran substance abuse is a growing problem not only in the United States but here in Florida as well. Many military members suffer from physical injuries and mental health problems when they return from deployment. The new war on terror has increased the trauma and emotional toll combat has had on our service members and their families. Prescription drug abuse is on the rise among veterans because many are treated with addictive narcotic pain medications for injuries. After extended use, veterans may become dependent on these drugs, and eventually, an addiction can develop.
According to the Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs, Florida has the third-largest veteran population in the nation. At Evoke Wellness Miramar, we recognize the mental and physical toll deployment can have on an individual. Many veterans turn to substance abuse to manage the mental distress they experience because of their time on the battle lines.
Unfortunately, mental health is a widespread problem among veterans, and those who go without treatment for their conditions are at higher risk of suicide. To extend support to those who have served our country, our addiction treatment and mental health treatment center in Miramar, Florida is now offering the Evoke Wellness Veterans Program. Call 866.931.9312 for more information.
About Our Military and Veterans Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation
Few people understand the unique stressors military personnel and veterans face. This demanding profession trains you to serve our country — but it can also change you in unexpected ways. Combat and other intense situations can be traumatic experiences that lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Those who leave the military sometimes feel uneasy as they transition back into civilian life. To cope, some turn to substance misuse.
At Evoke Wellness Miramar, our evidence-based approach to patient care includes proven methodologies, one-on-one care, and holistic therapies that help you build a firm foundation for long-term recovery.
