Veterans returning from combat and deployment face a number of challenges as they try to acclimatize to civilian life. Chief among these challenges is coping with the psychological and emotional trauma of their battlefield experiences and the toll it takes on their mental health. Far too many of them turn to alcohol or controlled substances to self-medicate, and the human cost is staggering. The problem of addiction is one that plagues veterans, but a number of resources and treatment options exists to help men and women in uniform rebuild their lives.
With 10% of medical professionals reporting personal substance or alcohol abuse problems, rates of addiction among medical professionals are similar to those in other professionals. One key difference is the sensitive and unique nature of mental health and substance abuse problems among those who are often in the position of treating those same maladies.
While there are many unique mental health resources available for medical professionals, navigating the system and finding appropriate help can be a challenge. After research across the resources available on the web, the team at Futures Treatment Center noticed the absence of a centralized resource designed to help understand the basics of addiction and navigate the resources across a range of medical professions.
This page features a distilled list and explanation of the most important governmental, professional and self-help resources available to individuals in medical professions, divided by specialty. It also features an overview of addiction problems and treatment options.
