Addiction and the Military: A Grim Picture
Alcohol and drug addiction continue to be a pervasive public health issue among our nation’s military. This is especially true for retired military veterans. Data from the United States Department of Veterans indicates that more than one in ten veterans have been diagnosed with a substance use disorder, a figure that outpaces that general population. Additionally, many struggle with additional mental health issues that can expose their families to danger and trauma causing them to cope with drugs or alcohol. TRICARE offers accessible and affordable ongoing care to military veterans as they struggle to transition to life after service, as well as their families.
Determining Eligibility for TRICARE
