Many people including veterans struggle with stress and mental illness, which increases their risk for developing substance and alcohol use disorders.
Alcohol addiction is one of the leading causes of preventable death in the United States. Most people with an alcohol use disorder improve with treatment, but less than 10 percent of people with the disease receive treatment. Unfortunately, social stigma and misunderstanding of the disease prevent many people from getting assistance that can help them lead happier, healthier lives.
