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
- 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.
