Nearly two million Americans have served in military operations overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan and many more veterans live and work among us. For many veterans, the transition between military and community life can be difficult.
Veterans and military families are disproportionately affected by substance abuse, mental health issues, and family troubles. Tragic consequences like suicide, alcohol abuse and prescription drug overdose far too often plague our nation’s heroes. Community coalitions can be a key component to helping veterans in need.
During the hour-long program Supporting Those Who Serve, hear about the potential problems returning veterans face and what is available to help them. Learn how you can be part of the solution. We’ll travel to Philadelphia to see how CADCA’s VetCorps is making a difference.
