If you’ve served in the military or know someone who has, you’ll understand why SAFE Veterans is close to our hearts. A veteran is twice as likely to die from an accidental overdose than any other member of society, and for veterans and their families, the transition to civilian life can be particularly difficult, often losing the sense of purpose, camaraderie, and identity central to their military experience. Military culture also values self-reliance, which can lead to the perception that “getting help” is a weakness.
The problem: Few prevention programs address this concern and prepare the service member or their family with tools to prevent substance use disorders or mental health conditions.
To address this gap, SAFE Veterans developed and expanded several programs to connect veterans, active duty service members, and their families to the resources they need to address mental health challenges and substance use disorders.
