The Prevalence of Addiction and Mental Health Challenges Among Veterans

The 2020 National Survey on Drug Use and Health brought to light the alarming reality of substance use disorders and mental health challenges among the veteran population. The survey revealed that 12% of veterans battle substance use disorders, nearly 20% face mental health challenges, and 5.7% of veterans struggle with both issues simultaneously. These statistics underscore the pressing need for specialized addiction treatment programs that understand and address the unique experiences and challenges faced by veterans.

In his address to the audience, Sen. Paul Mark quoted George Washington, our nation’s first Commander-in-Chief, “‘A nation will be judged by how it treats its defenders’.” He added, “Programs like Your Six Recovery work to ensure those who have served, our defenders, are cared for.” Mark had previously presented Swift River an official citation from the Massachusetts State Senate in recognition of “providing an innovative and responsive approach for veterans and first responders who are experiencing substance abuse disorders.”

“Facilities like Your Six Recovery are established to help those of us who have raised their hand to serve,” said Sen. John Velis. “As a society, we have a great moral debt to those who have served our country, and facilities like this meet that obligation by offering help and healing to those who have answered that call.”
