This webinar is part one of a six-part specialty training series Addiction Treatment in Military & Veteran Culture. In 2014, the Department of Defense estimated that service members have left the military at a rate of 250,000 a year for the past five years (Office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, 2014). A number of our nation’s former service members have been psychologically impacted by their military service and returning to a community that can and should support their transition to a stable post-military life. The purpose of this presentation is to provide a basis of understanding about the different aspects of the psychological impact of military service. Participants will learn how service member and veteran mental health go beyond post-traumatic stress disorder, and how substance use disorders are connected with each.
