Veterans and Substance Abuse

Hello Folks – welcome back.  I know that we are supposed to start our discussion about Addiction but since tomorrow is Veteran’s Day we are going to change the tone here.  WAIT-Don’t touch that mouse!!  The information we are going to share with you will be of benefit to all of us.

Let me begin by telling ALL our veterans  Thank You for your service to our Country.

Without your unselfish service, we the people could not enjoy the freedoms we have in the United States.  Far too often, we take these liberties and their cost for granted.  The majority of Americans don’t realize all the sacrifices that our veterans have made to ensure that we can go about our daily lives as usual.  So for all the missed birthdays, anniversaries, Thanksgivings, Christmas’ and other special occasions that we are able to celebrate but that you, by your duty to country, have missed – I salute you.  Moreover, for all the loss of limbs and organs, for the nightmares and for the unthinkable memories that you live with for My freedom-I send out a genuine heartfelt Thank You.

Here are some interesting and important statistics that those of you in the Recovery Arena might not be aware of:

            7% of the US population is veterans

            About 23% of the homeless population in the America is veterans

            20% of the annual suicides in the US are committed by veterans-18 deaths per day

            Of veterans with substance abuse issues 68% choose alcohol as their drug of choice

Folks, this information isn’t provided to in any way down our veterans.  But to show that they have issues and problems and addictions like you and I do.  Maybe for different reasons but none the less they are real.  And to remind us of just how much we are indebted to our US veterans for all that they have forfeited for our country.

So, have you hugged a vet lately?  Have you told a vet Thank You for your service?  Have you bought a vet a meal?  In what better way could we do our service work than to help out a veteran and/or their family?  Not just at Veterans Day but every day.

Join us again soon.

Until then ……. be sure to tell a friend about us.

Thanks for visiting us – come back soon.
