Veterans and Mental Health-Veterans are at higher risk of mental health problems such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Depression, and Anxiety. Post-traumatic tress disorder (PTSD) is a huge mental health problem facing veterans and can also lead to addiction. Veterans often develop PTSD after experiencing traumatic events in combat. 

PTSD causes troubling symptoms such as: being easily startled, difficulty concentrating, increased irritability, nightmares, and flashback 

To deal with these symptoms, veterans often use — and abuse — addictive substances. For this reason, PTSD and addiction often occur alongside one another. 

According to the VA, almost 1 in 3 veterans who have PTSD also suffer from addiction.
