PTSD Linked to Addiction in Veterans

Any military service member who completes an active tour of duty or otherwise sees live conflict is at risk of suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This mental health difficulty can cause a variety of different symptoms and complications, many of which have been linked to addiction disorders.

Symptoms of PTSD often include:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Insomnia and night terrors
  • Hypervigilance
  • Flashbacks
  • Triggers
  • Substance addiction

PTSD can lead to substance abuse and addiction due to the “numbing” effects of many unsafe substances. Out of fear of experiencing another trigger and PTSD episode, some veterans might try to dull their senses and thoughts by using alcohol, opioids, and so on. The result is a high risk of addiction that can bring even more mental and physical health problems, exacerbating PTSD symptoms in the process.

How Many Veterans Have PTSD?

The United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) tracks data about how many military veterans suffer from PTSD and how that correlates to alcohol abuse and drug addiction. The information is arranged into tours of duty and military operations. Regardless of the conflict or operation in question, the data shows that the risk of PTSD and its consequences remains high among military service members of all branches of the Armed Forces.

PTSD rates among military veterans, according to VA data, are:

  • About 15% of Vietnam War veterans
  • About 12% of Gulf War/Desert Storm veterans
  • About 20% of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom veterans

At Decision Point Center, we are on a mission to help as many military veterans in Arizona overcome addiction, which can start by better understanding the symptoms of PTSD. You are not alone. We are standing by to help however we can.

Addiction Treatment Programs That Can Help Veterans

Our veteran substance abuse rehab specialists use trauma-informed approaches to create treatment plans that work for each individual. You will not be given a premade recovery program when you come to Decision Point Center in Prescott for help. We will take the time to get to know you, what is causing or worsening your addiction, and what will be the most useful way to challenge it.

For many of our patients who are veterans, though, dual diagnosis treatment is a great starting point. Dual diagnosis treatments acknowledge that addiction is often caused or worsened by a mental health difficulty like PTSD. Rather than treating both issues separately, this unique treatment program addresses them together, which has been shown to increase the effectiveness of the treatments.

You may  also benefit from many of our other customizable addiction treatment programs and therapies, such as:

Not sure what treatments would be right for you? Don’t worry. Our team is here to help make those decisions based on your health needs and preferences. Although you don’t need a doctor’s referral to get treatment from Decision Point Center, we can also communicate with your primary care team to see if they have treatment recommendations based on your medical history.
