Nearly one in five veterans suffer from substance abuse and PTSD. Veterans Healing Initiative, a nonprofit, is dedicated to providing veterans of all eras access to treatment for substance abuse and PTSD.
The facts: 18 veterans commit suicide every day. On any given night, 300,000 veterans are homeless and more than 76% of these vets suffer from substance abuse or a mental health disorder. As many as 35% of wounded troops are addicted to pain medication. Reserve and National Guard don't have access to the full range of VA benefits. Vets from Iraq and Afghanistan face multiple deployments and shorter breaks between deployments--for these vets, the clock's ticking.
