Every year, thousands of veterans struggle with the repercussions of war that manifest in different ways– including substance abuse, mental illness, suicidal thoughts, and post-traumatic stress disorder. The majority of these disorders go untreated because men, and especially veterans, struggle to reach out and ask for help.
Stigma, location, environment, and lack of awareness are the main reasons why veterans fail to get proper help. Many veterans fear that they will be judged and seen as weak, which forces many to be reluctant and not ask for help.
Depending on the severity of your situation, inpatient care might be the best resource to get you back on track. In today’s blog, we explore the real benefits of inpatient care (also know as rehab) and why seeking professional help is a sign of strength and not weakness.
