Veterans, Substance Use & Mental Health
It’s only natural that veterans experience a period of readjustment as they leave the military and reintegrate into life with family, friends, and their community. Many of these issues may even begin to surface while still in active duty. A number of environmental stressors specific to military personnel have been linked to increased risk of substance use disorders (SUDs).
- More than one in 10 veterans have been diagnosed with a substance use disorder, slightly higher than the general population.
- Reported rates of illicit drug use increase when active-duty personnel leave military service.
- Many veterans have unique issues related to pain management, with two-thirds reporting they experience pain.
- 65% of veterans who enter a treatment program report alcohol as the substance they most frequently misuse, almost double that of the general population.
- Veterans with SUDS commonly meet the criteria for co-occurring mental health disorders such as PTSD, depression, and anxiety.
- Those who have experienced trauma or were hospitalized or injured during combat are at risk for increased drinking or drug use.
- Veterans with SUDs are 3-4 times more likely to receive a PTSD or depression diagnosis.
